Saif Ali Khan moves on, set for his next three films
Saif Ali Khan invested close to a year and a half on Rangoon. Now that the film has released and is largely off the screens, Saif has moved on. He is looking forward to his next three films already, two of which are set to arrive in a matter of few months from now. “He has a couple of films in different stages of production, Kaalakaandi and Chef. Then he is gearing up to begin work on Nikkhil Advani’s Baazaar,” informs our source.
When contacted, Saif was quite candid about the choices that he is making as an actor. “I didn’t have a particularly great time at the movies a year before. That said, in the interim period, some very interesting directors called me with their scripts and said that I was their first choice. That’s always good to hear, when it is genuine. I want to work hard, and then prove to them I am not just a credible actor but also a very interesting one,” says Saif.
One such film is Kaalakaandi, which is directed by Akshat Verma (who wrote Delhi Belly).
“Kaalakaandi means ‘gadbad ho gayi’. It is on the lines of ‘Hey, a screw up has happened’. It is a very different film,” Saif adds.
Next to arrive would be Chef. “I am shooting for it right now. We have been doing some really interesting work on it. The film is giving me a lot of joy,” says Saif about the film, which sees director Raja Menon return after one of the best acclaimed films of 2016, Airlift.
Meanwhile, he is also slated to do Baazaar. “It is a stock market thriller and one of its kinds. The film is truly exciting for me,” Saif talks about the film, which would go on floors in a few months from now.
While Kaalakaandi releases on May 26, Chef would arrive on July 14. Count the February release of Rangoon and that makes it three films in six months for Saif Ali Khan. “I am also exploring a couple of other projects. I am looking at moving forward now,” smiles Saif before signing off.
