Posted in Movies with tags , , , on November 6, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan may not be happy with the response to his last release Laal Kaptaan but the actor is relieved that Aamir Khan is about to star in the Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha.

Saif will be playing an honest cop in the remake, while Aamir is keen to play the gangster — the stars reuniting on screen after 18 years of Dil Chahta Hai.

The original 2017 Telugu film Vikram Vedha starred

R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi as Vikram and Vedha respectively. The story follows Vikram, a pragmatic policeman, and his partner Simon who are on the hunt to capture Vedha. When Vedha voluntarily surrenders, he offers to tell Vikram a story, throwing the cop’s life into disarray.

Aamir plans to shoot for the film after completing his other remake — Laal Singh Chaddha, which also stars Sethupathi. Saif, meanwhile, is currently working with Ali Abbas Zafar on a web series titled Taandav.

So wait a little longer.” When questioned if he will be doing the film with Aamir, Saif Ali Khan shrugs.

Why Saif Ali Khan isn’t like the other Khans

In the current age of the paparazzi craze, Saif Ali Khan might be the lesser-known, less visible partner amongst India’s most widely covered married couple and parents. Kareena Kapoor Khan and their son, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi is often spotted out and about, while Saif is clearly, reticent to be seen or clicked. That, actually, might be a good thing for him.

Audiences today have a whole new generation included. The millennial generation is not invested or influenced by power hierarchies and established star structures of Hindi cinema. So the fact that the three Khans- Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman- lead Hindi cinema’s star brigade, while Saif was always the lesser star, doesn’t quite matter to them. What might matter instead is that he are the performances and films that work for them?

Saif Ali Khan has always been the most interesting Bollywood star amongst his contemporaries. Through his career, his film choices have ranged from unexpectedly great to simply disinterested. So have his performances. It’s visible when Saif is out there to deliver a memorable character. Langda Tyagi from Omkara, Dil Chahta Hai and Inspector Sartaj Singh from Sacred Games on Netflix are such parts. He has also slept walked through mediocre films like Kurbaan, co-starring his wife Kareena, and Happy Ending. And he has acted in quality films that are less known featuring him in winsome roles, like Being Cyrus and Go Goa Gone. Subtlety, shades of grey and underplaying a role are his calling cards.
