Trouble for Sara Ali Khan’s debut; Saif Ali Khan to intervene

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , on February 18, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

With Kedarnath, her intended launch film, locked in a legal battle between the director and its producers, leading lady Sara Ali Khan’s debut faces a further delay.

It would be recalled that Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter waited for almost a year for Karan Johar to launch her. Karan, however, got busy promoting and launching Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter Jahnvi Kapoor.

This is when Sara accepted Abhishek Kapoor’s offer to be launched opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in Kedarnath. Little did Sara or her concerned parents know that Kedarnath would be stalled due to a dispute between director Abhishek Kapoor and his producers, KriArj Entertainment.

Now, sources suggest Saif is taking things into his own hands and hunting for an appropriate launchpad. A source says, “This time Saif is on the lookout for the right vehicle for his daughter’s launch. So far, her mother Amrita Singh has been calling the shots.”

Saif Ali Khan on producing a film for Sara Ali Khan: These things are best left for people like Karan Johar

Actor Saif Ali Khan says he would love to produce a film for daughter Sara Ali Khan, but would want everything to be “too perfect” and does not think he will be able to do the job properly.

Actor Saif Ali Khan is “ super proud” and “super excited” about his daughter Sara Ali Khan’s debut in the upcoming film Kedarnath. The actor, however, says that he would have loved to launch his daughter through his production house, but feels his emotions as a father would have stopped him from giving his daughter the perfect launch pad.

“The other day she asked me, ‘why don’t you make a movie under Illuminati films (his production house)’? I would have loved to launch her, and I would have been extremely proud to do that. But I think I would want everything to be perfect, and would have accepted nothing less. That would have been such a big responsibility that I would have stopped working,” he says. “Plus I am not really a producer and it’s not my main area of expertise, so these things are best left for people like Karan Johar, I believe,” he adds.

Saif Ali Khan’s mirror-image, his son Ibrahim Ali Khan has expressed his Bollywood aspirations to him. The teenager is currently pursuing his education in London

Saif, who was at the receiving end of the wrath for the ‘nepotism’ jibe made on Kangana Ranaut with filmmaker Karan Johar and young star, Varun Dhawan, says that he finds this “kind of disturbing”.

Awaiting his film Kaalakaandi’s release, he is feeling confident about the film and also how his entire family has a connection with the film fraternity. “It’s really nice. Amma (Sharmila Tagore) works even now. She has a lot of energy and wants to move around all the time (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi). I’m more like my father. I’m happy to read a book on some afternoons. Bebo (Kareena Kapoor Khan), Soha and Kunal (Kemmu) have their careers going. Now, we have Sara joining in,” told Saif to the publication.

If you’re in the right film and look the part, people are interested: Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , , on January 6, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

Ahead of Kaalakaandi’s release next week, actor Saif Ali Khan talks about his next comedy, working on technique, and rediscovering Mumbai.

What’s Kaalakaandi about and how did you get interested in it?

When I was shooting for Rangoon, its director-writer Vishal Bhardwaj suggested that I read the script of Kaalakaandi. I liked the script which takes a very entertaining look at Mumbai. It offers an exciting story with a good arch for the lead actor. I play this man, who after finding out that he has stomach cancer, takes some ‘acid’ (a drug called lysergic acid diethylamide) and has the time of his life. By the end, his character undergoes a change. As an actor, it was interesting to have these small cameras shoot on live locations in Bandra and other parts of the city.

Did the movie help you rediscover the city?

If you take the camera around Mumbai, you will discover different set-ups and people. That’s exciting. Barring one day, we shot mostly at night. It is like Macbeth, in that sense. It has only one day scene. However, I discovered the city more while shooting for Sacred Games (produced by Netflix). It took us to places like Punjab Society, Andheri, Dharavi, lanes of south Mumbai and red light areas. We shot in grunge and felt Mumbai for what it is — the enormity of the city and the number of people trying to survive in it. What I am most excited about Kaalakaandi is that the language used in it is very true to the characters speaking it. The characters of Deepak Dobriyal and Vijay Raaz speak in Bombaiyaa Hindi. Sobhita Dhulipala and Kunal Roy Kapur speak a different Hindi compared to them, while my character speaks a bit more English.

Saif Ali Khan, known for films like Being Cyrus, Omkara and Parineeta, says he will be a better actor in English as it is his primary language. During an episode of online streaming service Saavn’s upcoming show “Take 2 with Anupama and Rajeev”, Saif spoke about his career, his daughter Sara and son Taimur, read a statement.

“One of the reasons why I got into films unfortunately, I’m being honest, is because I wasn’t interested in my exams and academics and I just ran away from home and said ‘Oh movies sound great’. But I didn’t really know what I was talking about,” said Saif.

“So, this desire and this understanding of acting came a bit late for me if it had always been there. If it had been there earlier maybe I might have chosen to struggle in the US, I don’t know.”
