'Even I have been a victim of nepotism': Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan is one of a few Bollywood actors who have managed to etch their name across mediums while also offering variety in performance. Just this year, two of his theatrical releases, romantic comedy 'Jawaani Jaaneman' and period drama 'Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior', saw him in contrasting roles and were both widely acclaimed.

The actor held a conversation with senior journalist Kaveree Bamzai in a chat arranged as part of Indulge Time Pass, a series of webinars organised by The New Indian Express group, and sponsored by SRM University. He opened up about a variety of topics, including spending quality family time.

“One of the most special things of this lockdown for me has been spending quality time with Taimur,” he began, before going on to discuss his experience of working with the late Sushant Singh Rajput in Dil Bechara that’s coming out on July 24 on Disney+ Hotstar. “He was a talented actor and a good-looking guy. I thought he had a bright future. He was polite to me and appreciated my guest appearance in the film. He wanted to talk about many topics like astronomy and philosophy. I got the feeling he was brighter than I was.”

Reacting to the nepotism row and Kangana Ranaut’s scathing remarks, he said, “I have no idea what Kangana was saying on Koffee with Karan because I don’t think like that. As far as Karan is concerned, he has made himself a large symbol and it seems like he’s attracting a lot of flak for it. The truth is always complicated. There’s much more to it but people aren’t interested in that. I hope the tide is over and better things shine through.”
