“Film Industry is going to be too big, and become like Hollywood”, Saif Ali Khan
During an interaction, Saif Ali Khan opens about his views on changes in Bollywood.
Saif Ali Khan is known for taking up unfamiliar character and nailing it to perfection. His role Langda Tyagi in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Omkara was an unusual role that surprised many. Saif Ali Khan was the first one who stopped working for commercial films and broke the usual hero stereotype in Bollywood. Movies like Go Goa Gone, Bullett Raja, Kalakaandi and many more proved his extraordinary roles.
Saif Ali Khan’s upcoming film is with Navdeep Singh, titled Laal Kaptaan where Saif plays a role of Naga Saadhu. Eros revealed the first look of the movie which was scary enough.
Talking about the undergoing changes in Bollywood, Saif Ali Khan told Hindustan Times, “To me, it’s the greatest profession in the world. Bollywood is at its creative best right now. It’s in the midst of some kind of renaissance. I don’t think there’s been a better time. And it’s only going to only grow from here. Everyone’s kids want to join [Bollywood] now, and that means the industry is going to have people with different types of looks, playing different roles. The fixed stereotypes we had in our mind are constantly being broken.”
He also talked about how the smaller movies with a better concept are doing better than big movies at the box office.
Saif added, “The film industry is really going to benefit, and there’s a lot of room for everyone. I’m thrilled it’ll be out of control of the film mafia, where people try and control things. It’s just going to be too big, and become like Hollywood.”
Saif’s movie Laal Kaptaan will release on September 6, 2019. He recently finished the shooting of Netflix Original series Sacred Games 2, which is scheduled to release on August 15, 2019.
