Actor Saif Ali Khan is all praises for Kabir Khan, who has directed his upcoming movie Phantom, and said that he feels secure to have the Bajrangi Bhaijaanfilmmaker at the helm of affairs.
“I love this kind of films. I am very happy this worked for me. I am also happy to have worked with Kabir. We both liked this idea of a film. I feel secure that Kabir is at the helm of affairs,” he revealed.
“We did meet earlier when he (Kabir) was making Ek Tha Tiger and I was working on Agent Vinod, to make sure we are not making same stuff,” the Dil Chahta Haistar added.
Co-produced by UTV and Sajid Nadiadwala, the movie is based on Hussain Zaidi’s novel Mumbai Avengers and is set in the aftermath of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and deals with global terrorism.
When asked what people in Pakistan think about the portrayal of Pakistan in Bollywood films, Saif said, “I spoke to one of my relatives (in Pakistan) and he said he doesn’t like films that ‘bash Pakistan’. I want to do a variety of roles. I wanted to do this film as it excited me. It had a big director, Kabir Khan and a heroine like Katrina Kaif. It was a nice opportunity,” the 44-year-old actor said.
Phantom which stars Katrina Kaif opposite Saif is slated to release on August 28, this year.
