What did Saif Ali Khan say on his role in Adipurush?

Saif Ali Khan will be essaying the role of demon king Lankesh in Adipurush.

Earlier, Saif had landed into a controversy when he said in an interview to Mumbai Mirror, “It’s interesting to play a demon king. But we will make him humane, up the entertainment quotient, justify his abduction of Sita and the war with Ram as revenge for what was done to his sister Surpanakha by Lakshman, who cut off her nose.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Prabhas started the shoot of his film ‘Salaar’ with KGF director Prasahnt Neel.

He will be wrapping up the film before moving to ‘Adipurush’.

Saif Ali Khan, on the other hand, will also have wrapped up the shoot of ‘Bhoot Police’ by then.
