A source was quoted saying that Ali will start working on it post Bharat’s release. The source added that Ali believes that digital platforms have great potential. The source also revealed that Saif has been approached for the project and that he has shown ‘keen interest’ in it. If everything goes well, an official announcement will be made soon.

Saif Ali Khan opens up on the success of Sacred Games

In an effort to get the optimum work done without compromising on the quality of work, Netflix has appointed two separate directors to direct the two parallel plots involving Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. While Anurag Kashyap is directing all the episodes featuring the character Ganesh Gaitonde (Siddiqui), Neeraj Ghaiwan (of Masaan fame) directs the episodes featuring Saif Ali Kham as the Sikh cop Sartaj Singh.

Interestingly, this is not the first time that Saif has scored resounding success as a Sardarji. Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal where he played the lovelorn Sardar, remains Saif’s most beloved cinematic part to date.

Saif admits Sacred Games is a game-changer in his career and indicative of the rapid changes in the cinematic platform. “The world is different now. Cinema and web are agnostic brothers. Just look at the career of Tom Hardy. He plays any and everything from the hero to villain and he treats the home and theatre media with equal respect. He has his own television show while he rules the big screen.”

Saif is clearly enjoying himself doing Sacred Games for a second season. “They pay so well! And there are talented actors and technicians doing intelligent things: (author) Vikram Chandra, (director Neeraj Ghaywan), (writer) Varun Grover…It’s a lovely environment.”

No Hollywood for Saif Ali Khan

A while ago, there was a buzz that Saif Ali Khan had been approached to do a Hollywood film in which he would have an important role. This was immediately after the kind of reactions that he was getting in the media as well as on the social media about his performance as Sartaj Singh in Sacred Games, the season two of which will be on the web in a month from now.

“There were talks that he had been approached for the Hollywood film and that they (the studio) wanted him to essay an important part,” says a source. But Saif’s team denies that the actor has signed on the dotted line as yet. “It is not true that he has signed anything,” says Team Saif.

Sources still insist that the said studio is trying hard to convince Saif to do the film with better offers. But Saif seems to have his hands full at the moment and has still not given the green signal. Apart from Sacred Games 2, Saif is working on films like Jawaani Jaaneman, Bhoot Police, Taanaji, among other projects. Not long ago, Saif had himself said that he would not like to uproot himself from Bollywood to work in Hollywood.

After wrapping up the shoot for the second season of Sacred Games, his web series that went on to make an international impact, Saif Ali Khan took off for a small break to Pataudi, Haryana with wife, Kareena Kapoor Khan and son, Taimur. And now, that he is back, the actor is looking forward to completing his work on Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior, which is based on the life of the 17th-century Maharashtrian Maratha military leader. Saif plays Udaybhan Rathod, a Rajput military officer serving in the Aurangzeb army and the antagonist in the film.

A source close to the actor reveals, “It’s been a choc-obloc year for the actor, who has already started filming his next historical. The film is currently being shot at Filmistan Studios in Mumbai and the makers are going all out to ensure that the production value is on par international standards yet true to the era. The costumes are by designer Nachiket Barve and cinematography by Keiko Nakahara. Saif, who has a keen interest in history, knew this role would be taxing. So, he wanted to take a break before he started working on the film. He is glad he got to spend some quality time in Pataudi before heading back to the city to begin work on the film.”

Talking about being part of the historical drama, Saif says, “The whole world that has been created here (the sets) is exciting to step into. Everything from the costumes, to the art and the sets, are next level. I love every bit of this high production value historical.”
