In a recent conversation with Film Companion, actor Saif Ali Khan reflected on the unpredictable nature of success and failure in the film industry, shedding light on his own experiences and perspective.

Saif candidly acknowledged that he doesn't perceive himself as a star capable of guaranteeing success for every project, citing the example of the 2019 film Laal Kaptaan, which faced challenges despite his involvement. With a touch of humor, he remarked, "I’m not star enough to pull off anything."

Emphasizing the importance of staying grounded, Saif expressed gratitude for recognition but affirmed his commitment to facing reality.

Drawing inspiration from his parents' down-to-earth demeanor, he stressed the value of embracing failure as an inevitable part of the journey rather than fearing it.

Reflecting on the disappointment surrounding Adipurush, Saif highlighted the inherent risks in bold choices, acknowledging that failure is a natural aspect of taking risks. Despite the setback, he emphasized the importance of resilience.

Adipurush, a mythological epic released in June last year, faced both critical and financial challenges despite its star-studded cast and ambitious concept. Saif Ali Khan, portraying the antagonist Lankesh, was part of the ensemble cast that included Prabhas and Kriti Sanon.
