Saif who has earlier served with some impeccable rom-com characters during the early 2000's has continued serving his roles until now but today his roles has a huge tonal contrast as compared to his early days. Like the one in Netflix's television series 'Sacred Games' or the role of Ravan in the Prabhas-Kriti starrer 'Adipurush'. Speaking off Adipurush alone, his global fanatics were quite eager to get served with an immersive character from the Hindu epic, Ramayana but we all were dissapointed when the movie came out. In short, Adipurush faced a huge backlash from the Hindi cinema goers for it's patchy storytelling tecnique, low grade CGI and most importantly the dialogues written.

Saif Ali Khan on failure

During a recent interview with a media forum, he was asked on his downpoured films to which he stated that being an actor doesn't give anyone with a guarantee regarding the success of the films he opts. Giving example on the same, he mentioned the 2019 movie Laal Kaptaan, which even though being directed by Navdeep Singh has struggled surpassing Rs. 50 lakh on it's opening day. Thus humorously stated, "I’m not star enough to pull off anything." Continuing further he said that he prefers to live in practicality. Although he appreciates being recognised by the people for his work, that doesn't let his wings fly away. He prefers being grounded and a normal human being and gasped about not even considering himself as superstar nor he wishes to be one. "It’s nice to be realistic, and I’ve never actually thought of myself as a star, and I don’t really want to also. I like being a star, but I don’t want to be delusional. My parents are big stars, but very realistic, very normal. There’s so much more in life to be real about, my focus has always been on that… The idea is not to be scared of failing," his words conmtinued.

Saif's vivid views on Adipurush's Failure

While moving forward, his words folded for with Adipurush. Throwing light, he reminisced how people often praises the choice of roles, call it bold like the one in Adipurush. But they never accepts failure. But according to him Failure is totally inevitable, it is what makes life more interesting thus making you pull yourself up and get ready for achieving an yet another milestone. "People say, 'That was a brave choice…' You talk about Adipurush, for example. People talk about risks, but if you fall on your face, it’s not a risk really. You have to have a few of those also, and it’s a part of the approach. You have to shrug it off, feel bad, and say, 'Nice try, but bad luck, let’s go to the next one,'" Saif gasped.
