[ZESTCaste] 'Aarakshan' my most complicated role: Saif Ali Khan

'Aarakshan' my most complicated role: Saif Ali Khan
New Delhi, Aug 6, (PTI):

Saif Ali Khan says playing a Dalit teacher in Prakash Jha's upcoming
film 'Aarakshan' has been his most difficult role so far.

The actor, who has an image of the sophisticated urban hero, is seen
speaking in chaste Hindi in the movie, which also stars veteran
Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Prateik and Manoj Bajpai.

And it was not an easy task for the actor, who struggles with Hindi in
real life, to speak the language fluently, especially in front of
Bachchan, who is famous for his command on the language.

"I am really happy to work in this movie and I thank Prakashji for
giving me the most difficult and complicated role of my career. I have
worked hard to understand and play this character," Saif, who was in
the city to promote the film, told reporters.

The 40-year-old actor said that despite having reservation as the
backdrop, the film talks about human relationships and how issues like
this affect individuals.

"I think it is a very dramatic movie. When I was offered the role, my
mother told me 'Go practice your Hindi' and she was right. Prakashji
and Amitji both speak the Sanskrit Hindi," Saif added.

'Aarakshan' releases all over on August 12.
