Saif-Ali-Khan imagesThe fourth Khan of Bollywood is ready to woo audiences in his all new rustic avatar and while there is the pressure of joining the Rs 100 crore club.

Saifu isn’t worried – he says that he will be happy even if his film doesn’t cross the century mark… Saif Ali Khan has charmed many with his lover boy image, but with Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullett Raja the Nawab is moving into new territory. We recently caught up with Kareena Kapoor Khan’s hubby, who looked royal in every sense in a blue long kurta and white pants. We had to wait a bit to start chatting, since Mr Khan wasn’t comfortable sitting on a chair and so had a sofa brought in.

Truly nawabi, hai na? But the wait was worth it, coz Saif Ali Khan was more than willing to answer questions and did speak his mind, unlike most celebrities who think twice before making any kind of statement. Did he talk about his daughter’s filmi plans? Was he willing to comment on his rivals? Is he hoping to enter the Rs 100 crore club with Bullett Raja? Find out…..You have a very western persona and yet you pull off Indian roles like Langda Tyagi in Om kara and now Raja Mishra in Bullett Raja. How do you manage that?Om kara was something I worked really hard on and Vishal Bhardwaj gave me a great role and it helped me a lot.

I have grown as an actor; I understand my job well and have little more control over what I do. I like the feeling of being versatile. But there was a time when I was not doing too much work. I used to look for stuff that excited me, and was trying to be selective. But then I realised I was wrong. I felt that even if I made a mistake, I should keep working and try different things. If I like a film and its director, I don’t need to really read the whole script to convince myself. And I felt Bullett Raja was really interesting; it was something new and different. Moreover, if you keep doing what is comfortable and what comes to you easily, after a while it gets boring.

I am lucky I could do a film like Bullett Raja. Further, you need to have a slightly tough demea nour, a rough attitude, to carry this part and there was a time when I felt I was too young to do it or too boyish to pull it off. It is really exciting that times have changed now. -Bollywoodlife
