Saif Ali Khan, who played the role of Lankesh, recently opened up about the failure of Adipurush at the box office. For the uninitiated, Adipurush collected Rs 400 crores globally.

Saif Ali Khan reacts to the box office failure of Adipurush

Speaking with Film Companion, Saif said, “I’m not star enough to pull off anything (laughs). It’s nice to be realistic, and I’ve never actually thought of myself as a star, and I don’t really want to also. I like being a star, but I don’t want to be delusional. My parents are big stars, but very realistic, very normal. There’s so much more in life to be real about, my focus has always been on that… The idea is not to be scared of failing.”

The actor added,” People say, ‘That was a brave choice…’ You talk about Adipurush, for example. People talk about risks, but if you fall on your face, it’s not a risk really. You have to have a few of those also, and it’s a part of the approach. You have to shrug it off, feel bad, and say, ‘Nice try, but bad luck, let’s go to the next one’.”

Saif will be next seen in Devara, co-starring Jr NTR and Janhvi Kapoor. It is slated to release on 5th April, 2024.
