Saif Ali Khan’s career path has been a mix of both ups and downs since his Dil Chahta Hai days but the Pataudi has always managed to dazzle the audiences and critics alike with his eclectic choice of movies. His swagger has made us swoon even when it comes to his Amul Macho advertisements.

Saif has been on a year-long hiatus from the silver screen, yearning to play characters that help him to explore the craft of acting. He was quoted saying, ‘I think I am finally beginning to understand my sense of style as an actor. I am developing my craft, understanding what acting and communication is.’

He came back onto the silver screen as filmmaker Rustom Billimoria in the Vishal Bhardwaj directed period drama Rangoon last year. Following Rangoon was Chef, which was an adaptation of Jon Favreau’s 2014 film with the same name. Both his performances were lauded by the critics even though the movies did not do well at the box-office. But the Pataudi seems unperturbed by the recent hiccups. This 2018 he is sure to show us the aces up his sleeves.

Saif’s up-coming release, the dark comedy Kaalakandi portrays him in an unprecedented avatar. The trailer begins with his doctor diagnosing him with stomach cancer and saying, ‘Do whatever makes you happy’, and that marks an insane yet surreal trip through the city of dreams, gangsters and drugs.

The movie, produced by Cinestaan Film Company, Flying Unicorn Entertainment and Immoral Police will release on 12th January 2018.

Apart from this he will be seen in Nikhil Advani’s drama Bazaar along with Chitrangada Singh, Radhika Apte and Rohan Mehra. He is also starring in a Netflix Original, Sacred Games, based on the novel by Vikram Chandra with the same name. He has been roped in to play the role of the protagonist Sartaj Singh.

Looks like Saif Ali Khan is immersed in paving a trajectory that is remarkably different from his former days.
