I don’t like stardom: Saif Ali Khan
Mumbai: National-award winning actor Saif Ali Khan, who will be next seen in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Bullett Raja’, says he dislikes fame and stardom and does not attach much significance to it.
“I don’t like stardom… It is not important for me. I want to be respected as a person and money can do that. I don’t like people making noise, camera flashing, drama and three security guards walking with you.. It is horrible,” Saif told PTI in an interview.
“I love acting and love getting paid for it. I love making money.. It is nice, these things are great. I don’t want to be famous, I don’t like the attention. It sounds strange to people. It feels nice to be walking and seeing things around, do normal things. I want to be happy, comfortable. That is why I spent lot of time abroad.. Nobody recognises me.. So, I am very happy,” he said.
The 43-year-old does not consider himself as a great actor or a superstar.
“I don’t think I am a superstar… I am just a star. Actors like Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and others are superstars who have achieved great success. I don’t think I have achieved that. I do I think I am successful but not super successful till now. But I would like to be super successful,” Saif said.
It is for the first time that Saif has teamed up with director Tigmanshu Dhulia for an action masala entertainer, which will hit theatres tomorrow. … contd
