Saif Ali Khan – the smart actor of bollywood.
Saif Ali Khan had been one of the smarter actors of bollywood who had excelled in stylish roles during the last 10 years. Initially he was known for his dancing capabilities and in action films along with Akshay Kumar and Sunil Shetty he had contributed with his important performances. He had complimented Akshay Kumar in Main Khiladi tu anari, with his comedy performance and good lips in the songs “hum dono hai alag alag”, “pass who ane lage zara zara”, etc.
He developed his acting over the years and in the film Dil Chahta Hai, opposite Amir Khan and Akshay Khanna, he had made his presence felt. He was one of the three friends who wanted to live in their own way, and he was the most immature of the lot. He was even cheated by one of the girls in Goa who he thought loved him but ran away with his money. As the actors were serious in the film his flamboyant style added flavour in the film. He gave good lips in the song “woh ladki hai kahan”.
In Salaam Namaste, he complimented Preeti Zinta with his smart performance. He cooked delicious food in a restaurant in Australia and fell in love with Preeti who was a radio jockey. Then they examined the concept of live together, in the meantime, Preeti gave birth to a child also. The theme of the film was very modern and the concept had been debated a lot. He gave fantastic lips in the songs “salaam namaste”, “my heart”, etc.
As his acting skills developed over the years, directors had given him even negative characters like the one he played in the film Omkara along with Ajay Devgan and Vivek Oberoy. He expressed the rural style of mannerism that represents the villagers of India and his dialogue delivery also resembled rustic villagers. He received filmfare and other awards for the notable performance.
He never imitated his mother Sharmila Tagore, who had been one of the leading actresses of 60s and 70s, but developed a style of his own, which did not match any other actors. In 2008, his viewers are expecting powerful performance in the film Race, where he will be acting other leading actors. His voice suited the style of singing by Abhijit and he had sung successful songs for him. The notable songs where he gave adequate lips include “mai hoon ashiq”, “ole ole”. He is expected to do even better in the years to come.
