Sacred Games is not a web series: Saif Ali Khan

The actor recalls shooting in a public toilet for Sacred Games.

Saif Ali Khan is perhaps one of the few actors who will venture into a new zone with Sacred Games. However, he doesn’t want to categorise it as a web series.

He says, “It is not a web series. I want to call it streaming content. So far, it is very artistic and Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap are amazing to work with. This is the first time I am working with them. They are helping me improve my game tremendously. It’s an exciting space.”

The series, based on Indian author Vikram Chandra’s novel of the same name, will feature Saif as Sartaj Singh. Set in Mumbai, the series delves into the city’s intricate web of organised crime, corruption, politics and espionage that lie beneath India’s economic renaissance.

The actor recalls shooting in a public toilet for Sacred Games. He says, “We had to shoot in a public bathroom. It is the worst thing I have seen. I was worried about Hepatitis. So they cleaned it up because I couldn’t breathe. I felt like I will die here.” Currently, the actor is busy promoting his film Chef.

Saif Ali Khan admits that he is desperate for a hit

The box office hasn’t particularly favoured Saif Ali Khan for the last few years, with the actor braving almost 10 debacles since his last hit, Race 2 (2013), hit the marquee. While his contemporaries dismiss BO numbers, citing that they may not reflect people’s choice, Khan, who is currently prepping for the release of his Raja Krishna Menon-directed film, Chef, confesses that he is desperate for a hit. “It is important that Chef performs well, else I will have to question what is going wrong [with my career]. It affects my image of being a star, because, a star is supposed to be bankable. Yet, it doesn’t affect my confidence.”

Khan, who is currently shooting for India’s first Netflix original, ‘Sacred Games’, says box-office success is a validation of an actor’s credibility. But, he is quick to add that the roles coming his way reveal a different story. “[Despite the debacles of my past films], I still have three films and a Netflix series in my kitty. I have been the first choice for all these projects. So, I am sure I have done something right.” Addressing himself as a “late bloomer”, Khan says he has only begun understanding which script would develop into a notable outing, recently. “I am doing better work, working with better directors than I have,” says the actor, who has Akshat Verma’s ‘Kaalakandi’ and ‘Bazaar’, by Nikkhil Advani in the pipeline.

Saif Ali Khan: My foot has swollen almost like a football

Hurt on the set of his upcoming web series ‘Sacred Games’, Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan says fear of injuries doesn’t deter him from performing stunts in his projects.

“Such things keep happening,” said Saif Ali Khan, pointing to his right leg that is currently in an orthopedic cast. The actor recently injured himself while shooting an action sequence for Sacred Games, the Netflix original based on Vikram Chandra’s novel by the same name. “My foot was swollen like a football. The doctor told me it was a minor ligament tear. It was terribly painful, but it’s getting better now.”

While most actors would take time off to recover from the injury, Khan could not afford to. Vikramaditya Motwane (one of the directors of the series) did not flinch from continuing the shoot. “I thought I’ll be out of action for some time, but that was not the case. Despite the injury, Vikram made me shoot an action sequence in a bathroom,” he laughed, the irony of the situation not lost on him, before adding, “Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am a fast healer.”
