While on the other hand, he is being trolled for his portrayal of Ravana in Adipurush. Ever since the teaser was released Adipurush received major backlash for wrongly painting deities.

The two last shared screen in Nation Award Winning film Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior (2020).

Saif Ali Khan said, “What I’d like to play is act in the Mahabharata if someone makes it like Lord of the Rings. We’ve been talking about it with Ajay Devgn since Kachche Dhaage. I think in our generation it’s the dream subject. Everybody wants to do that. We will get the Bombay film industry together with the South or whatever if that’s even possible and just make this grand movie.”

Meanwhile, his latest release Vikram Vedha received mixed reviews. The action thriller also stars Hrithik Roshan in the lead role as an antagonist opposite Saif, who plays a cop.
