Saif Ali Khan’s latest offering, web-series ‘Tandav’, may be embroiled in controversy this week but the forthcoming ‘Adipurush’ – which started rolling yesterday – is to see him play a negative role.
On taking on such a role, the actor told Filmfare, “I have always enjoyed grey roles more than milky white characters. In Adipurush, I am playing the ultimate negative character. But, after a point, it gets depressing if you are constantly being wicked.”
He added, “I also worry about being repetitive. So, I balance it by essaying a character like Sartaj Singh (Sacred Games), who is kind and vulnerable. The idea is to channel different energies”.
Ali Khan will also be seen in the Hindi remake of ‘Vikram Vedha’ (2017), essaying the role of a cop.
