Vaishnavi Gavankar |Aug 16, 2019

"Learnt Punjabi, figured out body language, proper acting, and then figured out that everybody has a different approach to things", says Saif.

Saif Ali Khan is turning 48 years young today. Nothing could go south for the actor with Netflix released the most awaited Indian series Sacred Games, in which we witnessed one of Saif's best performances ever.

Saif has successfully proved that the actor in him is still young, fresh and thirsty for strong scripts. And on his birthday Saif gives us a peek into the making of Inspector Sartaj Singh of Sacred Games

The actor asserts that it was a physically and mentally challenging role concerning whatever he has done till date. The story revolves around an Inspector who is too honest, had a troubled life, and to be the only person who seemed to read between the lines and knew what was coming for the city.

Talking about the physical transformation that he had to go through, Saif had said, "I think physically, for the first part, it was putting on some good muscle and weight. There were even some higher heeled shoes. Not like I look like a tough sardarji normally, but I did look like a tough Sardar. So that was an achievement because they are quite tough and heavy. So, the second one kind of leaned out a bit. You know, ostensibly because of the stress of getting your thumb cut off and trying to save the world, but also to look a bit more like a hero.”

His Punjabi accent was also noteworthy. The actor said about the same, "Learning Punjabi, figuring out body language, proper acting, and then figuring out that everybody has a different ‘approach’ to things. So he is troubled and honest. So whatever lines you’re given, you have to say them in a troubled and honest way. So these various things helped create Sartaj."
