April 20, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan is now looking to do more realistic films in future. The affable actor sent feelers to Vishal Bharadwaj, whose films belong to that category. Saif loved his Kaminey and is keen to star in a similar venture. He is making a conscious effort to move away from his cute, chocolate boy image. His Langda Tyagi in Omkara was hugely popular with the audience. Vishal, at present busy with Saat Khoon Maaf, is reported planning a film with Chote Nawab. The Saif- Vishal combo is surely something to watch out for!
Saif has enjoyed a good run at the box office lately. His maiden home production, Love Aaj Kal was a certified hit and his jodi with Deepika Padukone was well-received. Though Kurbaan didn’t do as well, his performance was highly appreciated. And then came the icing on the cake – the Padmashri award! It was a commendable achievement. Of late though, he has been written about more for his relationship with the stunning Bebo rather than his work. He hopes to change that in the upcoming year.
Saif career graph so far has seen him doing fun, light-hearted roles. His characters in films like Dil Chahta Hai, Kal Ho Na Ho, Salaam Namaste and Love Aaj Kal have been fun-loving, chilled out guys. He has largely done romantic comedies, comedies and feel-good kind of films. Though he has done intense roles in Omkara and Ek Hasina Thi, he mostly adheres to the commercial genre of cinema.
