Bollywood’s nawab Saif Ali Khan wowed us with his stellar performance in Netflix’s Sacred Games and he's getting ready for more. As far as films are concerned, his last outing Baazar garnered a mixed response from the audience. Now, the Cocktail actor is gearing up to grace the big screen again in an upcoming period drama, Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior. That’s not all. The film will also reunite him with his Omkara co-star Ajay Devgn. While his ardent fans are eagerly waiting to watch him in the film, the Cocktail actor has made an interesting revelation about his character.
"My character is the antagonist. But he just happens to be on the wrong side,” he told Mid-Day. Talking about his preparations for the film, he shared, “Since it is an action-packed film, I was required to look leaner. I had to be adept in horse riding. The fact that I was coming straight off Navdeep's (director Navdeep Singh) film made it tad easier. The physical prep has been rigorous for this film."
He also added, "After Sacred Games, I have been transported to a different era with this film.”
What’s interesting to note is that in Omkara too, Saif played an antagonist opposite Ajay. The duo previously also worked together in Kachche Dhaage and LOC Kargil.
Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior is helmed by Om Raut and is one of the most-awaited period dramas of the year. Based on the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670, it’s expected to open in theatres later in 2019.
