The shoot for the second season of Sacred Games is underway in South Africa with Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Now, Pankaj Tripathi has joined them for a month-long schedule in Cape Town. A source says that the makers are currently shooting for the back stories of the characters and taking off from where it ended in the first season. “The intent to move to South Africa was also to make the show go bigger and on an international scale. Also, in the first season, Pankaj only had three scenes and a voiceover, but in the second one, his role as Guruji will be central since he will be shown as the mastermind behind the events. He will be there throughout the series,” adds the source. Pankaj will sport a new look, which is being worked upon, in the second half of the shoot.

It has been reported that that Abhishek Bachchan is on board for Ragini MMS director Pawan Kriplani’s next titled film Tantrik, which is a horror. Now, we have learnt that Bachchan is no longer a part of the project and Saif Ali Khan has stepped in for the lead role instead. The director is still finalising locations and a leading lady opposite Saif. The project is slated to go on floors in the coming months.

The actor, when contacted, chose not to comment while Kriplai remained evasive too.

Saif is currently working on Navdeep Singh’s untitled next besides shooting for the Ajay Devgn and Kajol-starrer Tanhaji – The Unsung Hero. The actor is also producing Nitin Kakkar’s family drama Jawani Jaaneman, which will launch Pooja Bedi’s daughter Aalia Furniturewalla in Bollywood. The film, which is reported to go on floors in London this year, is a comedy which is centered on a father-daughter relationship. The film is about a 40-year-old man who refuses to grow up, while he accidentally realises that he is a father to a teenage girl.

Saif Ali Khan is currently shooting for two back-toback projects in Mumbai — the second season of his web show and Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior. The actor, who plays a negative role in the latter, will have a lot of action sequences in the film. Apparently, for an important scene in the film, Saif is required to be shirtless. In order to look the part, the actor has been leaving no stone unturned in his physical training. Besides, he has been on a complete no-salt diet for a while now, so that he can remain true to the requirement of that particular scene.

A source says, “Saif has been working out rigorously and is also following the right diet. He hasn’t hired a personal trainer so he has been training on his own. He is so strict about his diet and regimen that even when he went on a holiday to Switzerland and South Africa, he didn’t cheat on his diet and worked out extensively. Since he is shooting for two projects, Saif is making sure that he exercises in the morning or evening. Sometimes, he also ends up working out on the sets of the film.”

Saif Ali Khan will soon return from the short break he took to ring in the New Year with his family. In 2019, he will be seen in two period action ventures — Hunter and Ajay Devgn’s ambitious project Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Once he comes back from his Swiss vacation, the actor will resume work on the latter, which is being directed by Om Raut.

The Nawab is working on maintaining a particular kind of physique for the historical, which sees him essaying the character of Udaybhan Rathod, a Rajput officer.

A source close to the actor, reveals, “Saif has several big action sequences in Tanhaji. For one of the scenes, he has to go shirtless. He has been training to get into shape with his personal trainer for it.”

Besides working out, the Baazaar actor also has to follow a strict diet. “Saif has to look muscular and powerful for this character (he’s the prime antagonist). He is on a no-salt diet. During his holiday, too, he has been following the food regime. In fact, even in the pictures posted on social media, Saif can be seen sticking to his bowl of salad or veggies,” adds the source. The bare-bodied scene will be filmed around the end of January.

Did Fox Star Studios approach Saif Ali Khan for a horror comedy?

Posted in Movies with tags , , on December 17, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

Bollywood’s Nawab Saif Ali Khan‘s career got a second inning ever since he worked for ‘Sacred Games’. The web series was a game turner for the actor and he soon bagged some lucrative projects. There have been reports that Pawan Kripalani of Ragini MMS fame was directing ‘Tantrik’, a horror comedy for Fox Star Studios and was planning to take the project on floor by early 2019 with Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.

However as per a recent report, apparently, the studio has approached Saif Ali Khan to star in the horror comedy. The reason being, Abhishek after the success of ‘Manmarziyaan’ has hiked his fees. The studio decided to move to another actor as they felt the demand was too high.

The report further added, Saif agreed to do the film with a said number but there was a catch. The studio reportedly asked him to do a cameo in Sushant Singh Rajput starrer ‘Kizie Aur Manny’. But the shoot of the movie came to standstill when Mukesh Chhabra was suspended from his work due to the ongoing #MeToo movement. When the matter was resolved Saif had already started shooting for ‘Sacred Games 2’. Though he asked them to revise the dates, the studio turned him away and once again approached Abhishek Bachchan.

Saif who was not informed about the changes was quite miffed with the studio and even told them that it was very unprofessional of them to have conversations with another actor behind his back. The studio made some excuses for their stand and Pawan Kripalani, who was patiently waiting for an update, decided to step back from the project.

The show is already bringing home some big awards. Recently, at Asiatec Awards in Singapore, the web series won two awards including Best Director (Anurag Kashyap) and Best Editor (Aarti Bajaj). Kashyap took to Instagram to share this good news with the fans of the web series.

Kashyap attended the award function to receive the honour and revealed, through Instagram, that Sacred Games received seven nominations which is highest for a web series at the award function. We are sure this is just the beginning and Sacred Games will be winning many more such awards. Thanks to the fantastic first season, fans of the web series are super excited for the second season. While Saif Ali Khan is shooting for the web series in Mumbai, Nawaz is working on his portions in Kenya.

The show was hit with a fair bit of trouble too. There were #MeToo allegations against the writer of the show Varun Grover. Reportedly, Netflix was planning to shelve the second season but conducted due diligence before restarting shoot again. Now we wait for an official announcement for the release date of season 2.
