Saif Ali Khan is currently juggling between the shoot of Chef and the promotions of his upcoming film Rangoon. The film, which also stars Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor in the lead, is a week away from the release.
Ahead of that, Saif spoke to a popular daily about his film and his role in the movie. When he was asked what was the turning point of his career, Saif stated, "I had a very shaky start because I wasn't cut out in my mind or in other people's mind for this (Bollywood). I wasn't thinking like a hero or as an actor. Over the years, I started understanding the dynamics of the industry better. Films like Dil Chahta Hai and Kal Ho Naa Ho were important. I think holding my own in a Shah Rukh Khan film was a big achievement at that time, and I also learnt a lot from him in terms of the kind of commitment a hero brings to a film."
He continues, "After that, I was cast in Hum Tum and thereon, things changed. Well, there were highs and lows, and sometimes, one loses focus and a certain amount of excitement of going to work every day. I went through that phase a couple of years ago, where maybe I was being a little less passionate about what I was doing. I guess I needed a wake-up call. Sometimes when things don't work, you get a jolt and it makes you sit up and work that much harder."
Meanwhile, on the personal front, Saif and his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan recently welcomed their first baby, a son named Taimur Ali Khan. He was born on December 20, 2016.
