Heres why Saif Ali Khan stopped working in mainstream movies

Saif Ali Khan started his career as an A list star who usually worked in typical romantic comedies but in last few years, he has explored several new genres and has been open to new and experimental form of entertainment. In a recent conversation with The Indian Express, Saif shared that although he was quite successful while doing mainstream movies, he believes that he made the right choice by switching over to different kind of cinema.

Citing the reason behind this switch, Saif shared, "The ideas were restrictive and I wasn’t having any fun. It was important for me to have fun, so I didn’t bother about anything. I just wanted to act. I’m on that path where I want to really immerse in the character and have fun and not worry about what will people say or what will happen, should I do this or that, but really commit to my part as well. It is fun and I always wanted to get there. Acting is difficult in a sense that you want to be absolutely careless and carefree but there are a certain restrictions in life, but now I how I get to do more of that.”

Talking about his recent release 'Vikram Vedha', Saif said, "I wanted to do it because I loved that movie when I saw it and then when I read the script, it seemed like an international script. It is the kind of story that’d run anywhere and that’s why they also brought it to Mumbai because they knew it could work even it was Hollywood cop drama, so it wasn’t that it was the script and the role.”
