Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan in an recent interview refused to talk about his impending marriage to actress Kareena Kapoor and said that he would only discuss his wedding after a couple of months.
“I can't confirm the date right now. Probably a couple of months down the line, I would speak to you about it. Right now it's only ‘Cocktail’, and I want to keep my professional and personal life separate,” said Saif Ali Khan to a daily.
The actor’s recent release ‘Cocktail’, also starring Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty, has been Saif Ali Khan’s biggest opening ever. The actor is in fact shocked with the response the movie has garnered.
“I thought there would be morality issues about me going from one girl to another. But the multiplex audience is ready for a lot of new things. The figures are very respectable. ‘Cocktail’ did not cater to the masses or the numbers would have been much higher,” he said.
The collection of the movie at the box-office has turned out to be higher then Saif previous ambitious venture ‘Agent Vinod’.
“I don't know what to make of it. Most of the films with four stars don't really do well in this country at the box office. Cocktail is not a perfect film but it is a safe film. Agent Vinod was supposed to be a blockbuster but it did not click. So, I have learnt to work hard for every film and be ready for happy as well as rude surprises,” said he.
The actor said the he had enough of serious roles and wanted to play more entertaining characters from now on.
“I want to do more entertaining films. In the recent past, I have played a serious terrorist, a dalit leader and a spy. I guess after a long time I have played a character closer to my own personality,” he said.
Is that why he chose to be a part of ‘Judwaa 2’, sequel to hit comedy movie ‘Judwaa’?
“It is going to be fun but it's a tough act to follow. I am working on it and I have to make sense doing it. I am in talks with Tigmanshu Dhulia and Saket Chowdhury but nothing is completely finalized apart from Milan Luthria's film that I am doing,” he said.
While every big star of Bollywood has made an entry into the 100 Crore club, Saif Ali Khan is yet to make his mark. So is box-office success important for the actor or the critical acclaim?
“Definitely box office, but a bit of critical acclaim as well. I won't say that respect is not important, and what critics are saying sometime make sense. But there is a massive disconnect between the audience and the critics,” he concluded.
