His latest release, Bunty Aur Babli 2, unites him with Rani Mukerji after 13 years (they last worked together in 2008’s Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic) and was released by producer Aditya Chopra after some disagreements in the past. it was done. was formed. It also symbolizes their union. Saif revealed that Chopra texted him “Ghar Wapsi” while signing the film, “I remember Adi sent me this text when we confirmed the film. We have been doing this for over a decade. There were many reasons. Didn’t work together till then. I was looking forward to a good working relationship with Yash Raj Films again and that was one of the reasons to say yes to the film.
But the most compelling factor that attracted Khan to work in Bunty Aur Babli 2 was the opportunity to play the role of Rakesh Trivedi aka Bunty, who hails from a small town in Uttar Pradesh. “There seems to be a trend of playing small town characters. Things are becoming heartland and rural. Normally I play western urban characters like NRIs (Non-Resident Indians), but I really wanted to explore a small town boy. My instinct said that I should also try my hand at it. It was cute because Rakesh (in Bunty Aur Babli 2) is full of a grumpy, grumpy, bored, insensitive man, but he still remains loyal to his wife who is really sweet. ,
Talking about getting into the character, Khan says that he didn’t need to do much. “The idea of playing a character for whom the shaved party dance is the highlight of his life and who likes to hide and drink whiskey, helped me bring these elements to my character and figure out how to play the character. To be fulfilled It was a lot of fun doing something different from the normal things I used to do. ,
While Khan steps into the role played by Abhishek Bachchan in the first film, which released in 2005, the actor says the character has nothing to do with the original Bunty. “To be honest, Adi called and said, ‘Things are not working out and we are not able to proceed with the story with the original cast. Would you be interested in being a part of this film after you adjust the role? ? ? And I said yes because he is producing the film and he knew what he wanted to do with the franchise and once he knew he was not going to go one way, he took the other route. He has a very practical approach to it.”
Khan, who has been a part of the industry for nearly two decades, has played a variety of roles in his career both in search of a hero and a hero. The actor though wants to do some films that he can watch with his kids, “I was watching The Mummy with Taimur and Kareena and the fact that we could all live under the blanket and watch this film as a family. could see.” I realized this is a huge market. If you can, promise entertainment that isn’t so scary or upsetting and has a bit of a thrill where your child can squeeze your arm a bit. Are you doing it? So I guess I look forward to doing good, lovely family comedy films in the future.”
