The original Khan – Saif Ali Khan cannot be pigeonholed

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , , , , on August 18, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

In the race for Bollywood’s most popular Saif, Saif Ali Saif has always finished fourth. Even so, he has made an impression with roles that have been varied and often challenging. He was Langda Tyagi in Omkara (2006), and again a manipulator in Being Cyrus (2006). Later, in Go Goa Gone (2013), he played a Punjabi zombie hunter who thought he was Russian. This year, we are seeing him again as Sartaj Singh in Netflix’s Sacred Games, an emotionally vulnerable police officer who struggles to save Mumbai. Later this year, in Navdeep Singh’s next, Laal Kaptaan, he will be seen playing a lone wolf who goes out on a hunting spree in 18th century India. Looking at his recent choices-Chef (2017) and Kaalakaandi (2017) included-it seems obvious that Saif is slowly growing impervious to staid formulas and box office collections.

“Sometimes when we work, we have to work for money, which means we have to follow the diktats of the market. But before Sacred Games, there was a time when I was surrendering more to the job than worrying about how it will be perceived,” says Saif. “You follow that and things fall into place.” Sacred Games is Saif’s way of treating his work more as an “artistic effort”, less an obligation. It’s this facet that made Krishna D.K., one half of the writer-director duo Raj & D.K., take the script of zombie comedy Go Goa Gone to him. On hearing the script, Saif called it “chu****** and crazy”. He agreed not just to star in the project but also produce it. “He has this childlike enthusiasm and curiosity. He also has a basic instinct to do something special,” says D.K.. “There’s a drive in him-sometimes it works, sometimes it fails.”

Director Imtiaz Ali proved with his film ‘Love Aaj Kal’ that some characters and films stay etched deep in the audience’s hearts and leave a lasting impact. As the film starring Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan completed 10 years today, the director took to social media to share his thoughts on the changing dynamics of love and relationships in the modern-day.

“In these ten years after Love Aaj Kal, I see that the process of a love relationship has changed dramatically. The way young people think of relationship now, I could not have predicted ten years back. It’s fascinating and very inspiring,” he captioned his post that featured a poster of the film.

Saif Ali Khan on Love Aaj Kal and if daughter Sara Ali Khan is taking franchise forward: ‘It’s not my legacy at all’

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , on August 1, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

The film Love Aaj Kal, which released on this day 10 years ago, was a respite from run-of-the-mill romantic films. Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone played two commitment-phobic young and successful professionals who keep changing their relationship status and only begin to understand the relevance of marriage and stability after their break-up.

What also made it unique was the fact that the story ran parallel to actor Rishi Kapoor (his younger self also played by Saif) and his on screen (and off screen) wife Neetu Singh’s (younger self played by actor Giselli Monteiro) love story set in the earlier times.

Actor Saif Ali Khan says he is very excited that his daughter and actress Sara Ali Khan is working with filmmaker Imtiaz Ali for the upcoming film “Love Aaj Kal 2”.

“It’s a lovely movie and I’m very excited in particular that Sara is working with Imtiaz Ali. I wish both the young stars — Sara and Kartik Aaryan the best,” Saif said in a statement.

There were reports that Saif, who was in the first instalment of “Love Aaj Kal”, will be seen playing the role of Kartik’s father in the sequel.

Saif said: “I’d honestly want to play every role provided it’s interesting enough and if the time permitted it. Though Imtiaz was very kind to offer me a part in the sequel of ‘Love Aaj Kal’, I haven’t signed the film contrary to the rumours.”

“Love Aaj Kal”, a romantic-comedy film, released in 2009. It also featured Deepika Padukone and Rishi Kapoor in key roles.

The sequel is scheduled to hit the screens next year.

Saif has several projects line up. He will be seen in “Sacred Games 2”, “Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior”, “Bhooth Police”, “Hunter” and “Jawaani Jaaneman”.

Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan will soon be seen sharing screen space in Imtiaz Ali’s next directorial. There have been speculations that this movie will be a sequel to his block buster with Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, Love Aaj Kal. The tentatively titled, Aaj Kal, is already creating a lot of buzz among the audiences due to the star cast. Both Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan shared a glimpse from the movie and they look smitten by each other in the picture. The fans are super excited to see them come together after Sara admitted to her crush for Kartik on Koffee With Karan.

The duo was also seen enjoying a bike ride in Delhi when they were papped while shooting. They have wrapped up their shooting schedule for Delhi and uploaded videos from the wrap up party; they were seen having a fun time together. Now, there have been a lot of rumours flying around the B-Town that Saif Ali Khan might play the role of Kartik Aaryan’s father in Love Aaj Kal 2. There have been no confirmations regarding this news from the makers’ end and it still remains a speculation. However, we are really excited for this to actually happen. It’ll be amazing to see the father-daughter duo work together for the first time and that too with Kartik Aaryan in the equation.

The leading duo was also spotted having a quaint candle light dinner looking absolutely adorable. This Imtiaz Ali directorial is slated to release on February 14, 2020, a perfect release date for a romantic story.

Saif Ali Khan: I don’t want to be stuck with an image

Saif Ali Khan on the creative renaissance in Hindi cinema which encourages him to push the envelope

Your sartorial choices are as eclectic as your films. In this age of Insta-perfection, it’s nice to see a movie star who dresses down.

I’ve been working on two films, Tanhaji and Hunter, which are all about get-ups, beards and headgears. I’m so focussed on getting the look right on screen that I don’t concern myself on how I look off it. I’m not a fashion meter, nor do I want to be one. It’s okay to dress down, even repeat a certain outfit. I can dress up when there’s a need for it, but to walk to the gym opposite my home, I’m not going to worry about whether I’m looking good. The idea about working out is to look good physically, right? Look at Rajinikanth, he’s the biggest superstar but doesn’t feel the need to wear a wig in public. Unfortunately, I live with the biggest internet star, Taimur Ali Khan, so the paparazzi is always parked outside and I get clicked often. If you ask my two-year-old son where the media is, he will point out of the window.
