Saif Ali Khan is one of Bollywood’s most famous actors. The actor is currently basking in the success of his latest film Vikram Veda where he shared screen space with Hrithik Roshan. While the film opened to mixed reviews, it garnered lackluster box office numbers. Time and time again, Saif Ali Khan has recounted his ups and downs and revealed all it took to get to where he is today. A look back at such a case where the Sacred Games actor was asked to break up with his girlfriend for a movie.
Yes, you heard this time. The actor once revealed that he was kicked out of a movie after the director asked him to break up.
According to a video shared by Wild Films India, Saif Ali Khan was asked about his struggles and he revealed that his struggles were different from those of his contemporaries. The Vikram Veda actor has revealed he was fired from a film after the director asked him to choose between the film and his love life.
In the clip, Saif Ali Khan is heard saying, “Fight ka matlab kya hota hai? Auto rickshaw mein baitho aur 10 chakkar kaato. Kisi ke office mein 3 ghante ke liye baitho. Ise fights kehte hain. Meri wrestle bhi thi lekin alag thi. Mujhe apni pehle film se nikaal diya gaya kyuki simple director saab ne bola ki you leave your girlfriend or you make the film. It was a moral choice (What does wrestling mean? Sit in an auto rickshaw and go to the same place 10 times. Sit in an office and wait 3 hours. That’s what they call wrestling. My wrestling was a little different. I got fired from my first movie because my director asked me to leave my girlfriend or continue on the movie).
Earlier, we brought you an interview of Saif Ali Khan with Lehren where he was heard saying: “I feel like he (Rahul) thinks that I’m not interested in movies, that I don’t don’t want to work. Several rumors also started circulating that I came to the sets drunk and continued to sleep on the sets. It’s all old now, but I was quite upset,”
“A lot of directors… Nobody wanted to work with me at the time. Who will invest money if they think the boy is not serious? It was a big upsetting thing. He (Rahul) threw me out of this movie. I didn’t come out of either movie. Rahul ji’s film is my loss,” he added.
On the work side, Saif Ali Khan is preparing the release of Adipurush it’s trending on the web for all the nefarious reasons. It also stars Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Sunny Singh in key roles.
