Professionally, Saif Ali Khan has not seen much success in the year 2017. Both his movies Chef and Rangoon have failed to impress the audience. However, he has a positive approach to begin the New Year. Kal Ho Naa Ho actor Saif Ali Khan has accepted that he cannot be a niche actor. At the same time, he does not possess a massy brain either. Kaalakaandi is next release on the cards for Saif Ali Khan. The movie is released on 12th January, 2018.
Talking to the media, Saif has said “I don’t want to shirk the obvious feeling that it hasn’t been a great last year. However, I would like to start afresh in the New Year. Box office notwithstanding, I have really tried to focus on being a better actor. For some really weird reason, I’m able to understand this craft better now than ever.”
On asking whether he has managed to deal with himself when things have not worked as he wanted and Saif has said “Sometimes when I was at my lowest, I even felt no one is interested in watching anything I do. But then again, I would tell myself — I do think I’m not that important that people have anything against me. Hits and flops are a part of the process. If I’m in the right film and make the right offering, then people will be there to see my movies.”
Regarding commercial choices of movies, Saif has told us “You’re right. A lot of what I get turned on by might not be the right offering and that is a curse as well as a blessing. I don’t have a very ‘massy’ brain and I cannot say wow, this is perfect, they are going to love this one in the front benches. Sometimes, yes, I do think it is a commercial film. I admit some of my ideas are niche. But then again, I’m scared to use the word ‘niche’. I do not think I’m niche. Maybe, I’m not comfortable doing what I would find silly. You have got to do it well and if you find something silly, you obviously will not do it well. Some people can do that kind of comedy really effectively. Having said that, I’ve enjoyed the commercialism of films like Race and Hum Tum.”
