Mumbai: This is an “amazing” time for Saif Ali Khan, in his words. A spate of films may have not managed to strike a chord with the audience but the actor is quite excited about the fresh movie scripts coming his way.
But what is most thrilling for the 48-year-old actor at the moment is the Netflix India Original Sacred Games that brought him a renewed lease of success off-late, coming back for a sophomore run. And as we await the second season, the actor, is enjoying a well-deserved break with his family in Wiltshire, England, a day before the second season of Sacred Games drops online.
The second season of the series, co-directed by Neeraj Ghaywan, finds his character Sartaj Singh in a better headspace as he battles life issues with greater precision and shoulders more responsibilities at work. Does the character resonate with him, given that there has been a marked difference in his career graph after the Netflix prestige drama? With his signature dry humour, the actor says, “I have never been as down and out as Sartaj. He was contemplating suicide. [The fate of] my films have never made me want to drink phenyl.”
Khan’s line-up ahead is enviable he is said to have been signed on for Ali Abbas Zafar’s political drama Tandav for Amazon Prime Video.
