Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan is reportedly getting trained in classical music for director Sameer Sharma’s next project. In this movie, Saif will don the character of a musician who travels to Varanasi and meets his guru. The guru’s role here, is likely to be played by Amitabh Bachchan.
Sources also say that, the movie will be a Salman Khan Films’s production venture.
Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s rise as an actor has been astounding. From being discarded as a wooden actor to winning six Filmfare Awards and a National Award; Saif Ali Khan not only tight lipped his critics but also made his parents proud. August 16 marks the actor’s birthday; we wish him birthday greetings and reveals the readers about who inspired Saif Ali Khan to be an actor?
Born in a family of nawabs and cricket enthusiasts, Saif Ali Khan’s career was almost certain in the field of cricket. His father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi was India’s youngest and most popular captain and his paternal grandfather, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, played cricket for England and later represented India as a captain, after independence. Thus Saif’s fate of taking cricket as a career was certain. But the question arises who inspired young Saif to pursue acting and not take up cricket?
In an interview Saif acknowledged, “It’s true that in our family, cricket runs in our blood. Even I played cricket. But once, when I was about 6 or 7 year old, I visited Filmcity where my mom (renowned actress Sharmila Tagore) was shooting. There I happened to see a tall actor with deep baritone acting opposite my mom. I was bowled over by his exceptional histrionics and I asked my mother his name. She informed his name is Amitabh Bachchan. That day itself, I took a pledge to become an actor like him when I grew up.”
Bollywood director duo Abbas-Mustan, who are known for making thriller films, now plan to explore the genres of romance and comedy.
The duo have made Baazigar, Ajnabee, Aitraaz and Race among others in this genre, which have turned out to be hits.
Like their contemporary filmmakers who are trying to make out-of-box films these days, Abbas-Mustan also want to experiment with different film genres.
“Thriller films have made us what we are today. We are thankful to the audience for the love and acceptance to our films. Such films should be gripping. People should get excited to see what is going to happen next. It is important for the audience to understand and connect with the flow of the film,” the duo said.
According to them, thriller films have come a long way in Bollywood. However, the filmmakers made it clear that they do not intend to make adult comedy films.
“No sex comedy films for us. We want to make clean films. We want to make family entertainer films. We cannot comment on other films which are being made,” they added.
Abbas-Mustan will be working with Amitabh Bachchan on a murder mystery. However, their project with actor Saif Ali Khan doesn’t seem to be happening any time soon.
“There is a murder mystery with Mr Bachchan, no Saif film as of now, and then there are a couple of other projects that are in planning stage,” the duo said.
The remake of Tamil film Vettai and its star cast have been hitting the headlines a lot lately. Which is why director duo Abbas-Mustan clarify, “We were to direct the Vettai remake for UTV but the film was on hold for a very long time, and neither were we getting the dates from the actor. We are no longer directing the film and they are collaborating with Dharma productions,” reveals Abbas Burmawalla.
When asked if he is upset, Burmawalla remarks, “No, not at all. It has been many years since we were in talks and now we have two films, which we will start soon. One is with Saif Ali Khan and the other with Amitabh Bachchan. The Saif film will probably go on the floors in October. We are yet to get a date from Mr. Bachchan.”
