Mumbai: Actor Saif Ali Khan is known for his sense of humour, both on and off the screen. Asked about how excited and nervous he was about his wife Kareena’s “comeback” film and his daughter Sara’s debut movie, the said, “You get anxious before any film. Sara has her whole life ahead of her. It feels like it is my debut film that’s up for a release. It’s her dream, and I hope all her dreams come true. Kareena is a great artiste, and I have seen how well she has concentrated on her health and fitness, and had you asked this question (on comeback) to her, she would have probably thrown something at you, like a shoe maybe. As according to her, she has always been around.”
Given that his last few films haven’t worked at the box office, he admitted he is feeling the heat, and hopes that 'Kaalakaandi' can buck the trend. He, however, avoided questions on the National Anthem debate and GST.
Saif Ali Khan says he gets inspired by the likes of Deepak Dobriyal to do a variety of roles. For someone who has acted in films like 'Salaam Namaste' and 'Hum Tum', he believes younger actors are more suited for the romantic movie genre. “Romcoms should ideally be done by a young guy. Someone who doesn’t know his mind, doesn’t understand things or who doesn’t want to get married.
There’s an age to doing romcoms. I had a great time doing such films in the past. But today, I want to do something that goes with my sensibilities and age. Now I want to move forward,” he opined.
He also revealed that he was offered 'Race 3' but added that Salman Khan is the best thing to happen to a producer.
There was one question, however, that irked him. When someone pointed out that cuss words in films have a negative impact on children, the actor was visibly miffed. “This is a stupid question. It is not our job to nurture youngsters. Our job is to just make films,” he said as he justified the ‘A’ certificate from the Censor Board for his movie, as the subject caters only to an adult audience.
