The Nawab of B-Town, Saif Ali Khan finds the cop-mafia stories romantic. Saif Ali Khan has been entertaining us from around 2 decades with comedy, family drama and thrillers but this time he got his hand on a cop-mafia story.
Saif Ali Khan is recently seen in Sacred Games on Netflix
Saif has produced movies like Go Goa Gone, Cocktail, and Agent Vinod. About his recent project on Netflix he said, "Given an opportunity, I would have produced something exactly like this ('Sacred Games') for a platform like Netflix. It would not be a family drama or a love story but a cop-mafia story set in Mumbai because I think such stories are really romantic. It is interesting to watch how the lack of opportunity that the poor suffer makes them develop their set of surviving strategy.”
He also added, "Such elements make it a romantic story for the international audience... How they (the poor) get into the crime scene. Universally, we can relate to a situation that exists between rich and poor, people with legitimacy, ingenuity, and yes, there is always a story there."
Saif plays the character of a police officer, Sartaj Singh in Sacred Games. The story is inspired by Vikram Chandra's book named ‘Sacred Game’.
"There are certain changes made because of the change of media from book to audio-visual. So, the screenplay is a little different. In the book, my character is quite passive and internal. That looks dull on-screen, so we made it little external. However, reading the book helped me to understand the essence of the character, and I love reading books anyway," Saif said.
On the professional front, Saif Ali Khan will be seen in the sequel of Go Goa Gone.
