Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan is going through a purple patch as his web series ‘Sacred Games’ generated amazing reviews and became a smashing hit overnight. Saif Ali Khan might not be counted in the same league as Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan or Salman Khan, but the ‘junior nawab’ has created a niche for himself in the industry and his film ‘Baazaar’ will be releasing tomorrow (October 26).

Saif Ali Khan’s character in ‘Baazaar’ is not your typical character as it has grey shades and in an interview to PTI, Saif Ali Khan further elaborated about the same saying, “There might be a little grace to the character. I think when I was a kid I used to watch Alain Delon movies. He was the best looking guy that’s ever been. This French actor used to play these slightly darker roles but he used to give it a little style, and in my head I thought, that’s cool. I’ve always been slightly intrigued by darkness more than the light side of things.” 

He added, “I find light to be misleading or boring. But as one gets old, even light needs strength to be reflected or to play Ram or to play a hero properly. You have to tap into different things. It’s just something I enjoy.”

Saif Ali Khan actually wouldn’t mind cornering the market (of anti-hero). It would be good fun to be known as that. Saif Ali Khan’s next film is with Ajay Devgn and Kajol titled ‘Tanaaji’. Even in this period drama, his character will be negative.
