Should Saif Ali Khan do more negative roles?

Saif Ali Khan surprised us all with his extraordinary acting talents as he made a spectacular entry into the OTT world and took it by storm. He has been an extremely underrated actor throughout his career, as has been stated by many in the industry, and was always appreciated only for his looks.

However, a minute change was brought about in his career with his first-ever negative role in Omkara in 2006. The movie was critically very well acclaimed and also a commercial success. It did wonders for the actors in the film, especially Saif, because he did something extremely different, took a big risk, and it worked. Post that, Saif Ali Khan did no negative role until Laal Kaptaan in 2019 and Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior in 2020. Both the roles put him on the map for his acting. He came out dominating both movies.

Now, he is all set to play Ravana in Adipurush, a depiction of the Ramayana. The difference that Saif Ali Khan brings to his negative characters is a lot of greyness, empathy and change in perspective. It would be really exciting to see him do more of that and give more meaning to darkness.

I cannot wait for Adipurush, because I have always wanted to know Ravana’s side of the Ramayana and more about his character. And I think Saif will provide just that. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
