Saif Ali Khan – Digital Space Takes Away Excuses For Not Delivering


Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan, who is all set to star in Netflix’s upcoming original series Sacred Games, feels that digital space comes with its challenges as you don’t have excuse for not delivering.
“I don’t see as a different challenge. I think acting is acting. I am happy and I hoping that we will be “freer-er” on this platform. I think it will be completely free to expose our weaknesses and strengths, so it is very challenging and little daunting because we have no excuses to not do something of international quality” said Saif Ali Khan.
Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be making debut on digital space with new TV-series titled Sacred Games.
The show is based on the critically-acclaimed best-selling novel by Indian author Vikram Chandra and will be streaming on Netflix. The series will be produced in partnership with Phantom Films and shot on location in India.
Saif Ali Khan also spoke about being at a stage in life where he wanted to do quality work and digital space is the right medium.
“The stage I am in life right now, I want to do good work and play interesting characters and this is exactly everything one could have asked for” added Saif.
Saif Ali also added that digital space takes away constraints on artistic expression, which is a great relief.
“I also don’t like the idea of too many constraints. I think it is really nice that we got a platform where we can also reflect, this book is very layered detailed book about India and the city (Mumbai) is like, to be able to show that on-screen and able to play characters, whether it’s a Sikh or any other, without having to be answerable to 500 institutions and asking for permission just to be artistic, it would be a great relief” added Saif.
On the professional front, Saif is also gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Kaalakaandi, wherein he will be seen playing an eccentric character. The movie is a story of six characters from different worlds, urban, ambitious Mumbai and its dark, neglected underbelly, a raucous tale about life, death, karma, that barrels through one monsoon night.
