Saif Ali Khan and daughter Sara have a double whammy 2018 coming up - Kaalakaandi, starring dad, opens the year while Sara's debut Kedarnath closes it. Saif told the press at the launch of Kaalakaandi's trailer in Mumbai on Wednesday that when Sara's film nears its due date, it will feel like one of his own's films releasing. The Salaam Namaste actor said, "If Padmavati comes in [on that day], we will think of shifting our release date". I hope we don't have to do that. "Kaalakaandi is a film I am proud of", says Khan, who has explored uncharted territories with the Akshat Verma film.
To this, he added, "It would have been nice to see Kaalakaandi releasing with Padmavati, as it shows that we have a film industry, which makes different kinds of movies". Asked, Saif said the film could have been marketed better.
Kaalakaandi's trailer takes us on a rollercoaster ride with star Saif Ali Khan as you have never seen him before along with the eclectic ensemble of Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Akshay Oberoi, Isha Talwar, Shenaz Treasury, Shivam Patil, Amyra Dastur, Nary Singh and Neil Bhoopalam. But I don't do that, I get my confidence back every time, irrespective of whether my film works or not.
"I think I am the flawless person to be the spokesman for this because of my parents, my connection and love for cricket. I'll keep working and hopefully, things will fall into place", he said. "They were all good actors and I think my acting has improved after working with some of these guys".
"I liked his (Raja's) attempt, it was a little European in flavor, and the drama could be a bit more, and I think he generally avoids drama".
"I don't think it was even publicised correctly".
He revealed that he's "thinking more like an actor" now.
