Saif Ali Khan to return as the menacing villain one more time for Om Raut’s Adipurursh

Saif Ali Khan left everyone stunned with his terrific villainous performance in Om Raut’s directorial Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Now, he’s all set to step into the shoes of India’s greatest villain ever in Adipurush – a magnum opus that marks the trio – Saif Ali Khan, Om Raut and Bhushan Kumar’s second collaboration together after Tanhaji. Saif has been signed on to play the prime antagonist in the period saga – who’s menacing, lethal and brutal, all at the same time.

Talking of actors his age, Saif has cut out a completely different space for himself, thanks to his powerful choices in films. At a time when films high on concept and content are setting new standards, the Nawab has been willing to experiment and how. Plus, his acting prowess as a performer and his towering on screen presence make him a perfect match for all kinds of roles.

Previously too, Saif has won a lot of accolades while playing the antagonist in several films – whether it’s as Langda Tyagi in Omkara or as Udaybhan Rathod in the recently released Tanhaji. In Adipurush, which is an on-screen adaptation of the Indian epic, that revolves around the triumph of good over evil, Saif will be stepping into the role of a larger than life villain.

Saif Ali Khan is excited about the project and shares, “I’m thrilled to be working with Omi dada again! He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to really pull it off. He has taken me beyond the cutting edge of our cinema in the way he shot Tanhaji and this time he is taking us all further! It’s a phenomenal project and I’m super thrilled to be a part of it! I look forward to clashing swords with the mighty Prabhas and to play a role that is electrifying and demonic!”
