Saif Ali Khan, who was last seen in 'Happy Ending', is gearing up for his next film 'Phantom', that releases this week. Going by the trailer and subject of the movie, one can be rest assured it is a typical intense Kabir Khan movie which deals with the sensitive subject of terrorism.
 
Ask Saif what preparations he had to do for the movie and he says, "Kabir said he wants a normal guy since the film is an adventure movie with little bit of fact and fiction. The film deals with the fact that after the atrocities of 26/11, we can't take revenge because terrorists are present all over the world. And that is when RAW comes up with an idea that like the terrorists they also need to send someone who can infiltrate and kill them (terrorists). That is where Phantom, meaning someone with no past or future, walks in. This man that they find is a disgraced army officer who was thrown out for cowardice. So my character is quite depressed in the movie. I had to look that way. That was difficult."
 
"I had to look a little depressed and disturbed and that was challenging. Someone who has killed so many people, that person needs to have a serious look on the face. That was the preparation. Just to maintain that expression was difficult. I had to almost remember that I am a disturbed character every time," reveals Saif.
 
Directed by Kabir Khan and produced by UTV Disney, 'Phantom' also stars Katrina Kaif in the lead. The film releases on August 28, 2015.

Doesn't look disturbed here and Kat, not sure what expression you want to call that?

Ask him to learn from his co star Katrina. She has managed to maintain the same single expression through the entirety of her career.

that means saif really acted in this movie. I like to hear actors being challenged.

Have you seen Saif Ali Khan during promotions... He gives this "I'm thinking reallllllly hard" look so he doesnt come across as a bimbo

I know! lol he was doing that in JDJ too. it makes him look like an idiot.

Another dud for Saif coming this weekend
