Saif Ali Khan: It is a right time to be an actor

Saif-Dimple starrer series ‘Tandav’ about power-hungry world of politics

Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan feels the shades of cinema are changing, and says it is the right time to be an actor.

“Earlier, commercial cinema was slightly less honest. Satyajit Ray would always talk about the honesty of the kind of cinema he is making, and the world would know India as that kind of country,” Saif said.

“As rightfully pointed out, the shades of cinema are changing and it is a right time to be an actor,” he added.

Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui agrees with Saif. “Bollywood is such an industry where the most and all kinds of films are made. The beauty of Bollywood is that those who make bigger films also work on shorter films, everything is co-related,” he said.

The stars opened up about the changing face of the industry in an upcoming episode of “Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films”.

Actress Mandira Bedi also opened up on the issue. She spoke of the inclusion of women-centric roles in the digital media. “These days we have well-written stories that revolve around what women are capable of pulling off. People are accepting them and are also now accepting the newer face that is slowly gaining importance. Lot of credit goes to the audience for the rise of women-focused roles,” she said on the show, which airs on Zee Cafe in India.

 For the second consecutive day, the Income Tax Department continued its ‘survey’ operations at the home of Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, official sources said here on Thursday.

A team of IT sleuths swooped on the 48-year-old Sood’s Juhu home to carry out search operations to detect certain alleged financial irregularities.

The IT department is examining bank statements, books of accounts, documents and details of financial or other business transactions during the ‘survey’, for suspected tax evasion, though no details are being shared officially.

In Wednesday’s operations, the IT had searched around half-a-dozen premises linked to the actor, including offices and other properties in Mumbai and certain locations in Lucknow.

Sood shot into limelight last year (2020) for arranging free flights or luxury buses for stranded migrants during the lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic and sent them to different parts of India, besides organising liquid medical oxygen supplies to various hospitals during the second Covid wave this year (2021).

On Ayushmann Khurrana’s 37th birthday on Tuesday, his filmmaker-wife Tahira Kashyap revealed how the actor won her heart, when they both were just 19 years old.

Tahira on Tuesday shared a throwback picture on Instagram and penned a heart-warming note talking about how the actor wooed her.

“We were 19! I found you quite cool, with your frames, bike, matching sweaters and mufflers, but what got my heart was when you held the guitar and sang a song for me,” Tahira wrote.

She added: “You have always been passionate about art and what inspires me is after all these years your innocence and excitement towards work and life remains the same. You have been my biggest confidante and cheerleader.

“I might not be a big romantic as the goofiness (like you would say) gets the better of me, but I want to tell you that life is amazing with you and I continue learning a lot from you! Happy birthday umm P.S. – we were such lookers no.”

Ayushmann and Tahira were childhood sweethearts. The two got married in 2008. The couple welcomed their son Virajveer in 2012 and daughter Varushka in 2014.

Ayushmann’s upcoming roster includes ‘Anek’, ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Doctor G’.
