Any celebrity who has a career that spans over decades in the film industry also has a huge line of controversies. In a recent interview, Saif Ali Khan opened up about the time when he was chucked out of his very first Bollywood film. Saif made his debut in 1993 with the film Parampara. However, the Pataudi regal actor has now revealed that he was originally supposed to debut opposite Kajol Devgan in a film called Bekhudi.
While speaking to Mumbai Mirror Saif said, “ I had to tear through fake cobwebs and emerge, singing a line that went, ‘ Chaahat Ki Raahon Mein, Kyun Itna Darti Hai’ It was not easy because my expression had to change as I went from ‘chaahat ki raahon mein’ to ‘ Kyun Itna darti hai.'"
He added saying, "I might just about pull it off today, but, back then, straight out of a boarding school in England, I was petrified. I must have performed really badly because soon after, Rahul Rawail threw me out of the film, complaining I wasn’t showing enough interest. That shot, I must admit, was particularly appalling”
Saif also said that he wasn't excited about the role as he wanted to play a character who he could relate to. The actor now has a long-standing successful career in Bollywood. He has starred in films like Tanhaji in the recent past. His other big hits include Hum Tum, Dil Chahta Hai, and also the Netflix show Sacred Games.
Saif Ali Khan will next appear on the big screen with his film Dil Bechara and later Bunty Aur Babli 2.
