Romance, drama, action, thriller – he has done all but Saif Ali Khan hasn’t tried a political thriller yet and says Prakash Jha’s “Aarakshan” is his first in the genre.
The actor is starring in Jha’s high voltage political drama that also has Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Prateik Babbar and Manoj Bajpayee.
“This is my first time in a political movie. Considering my rest of the films are commercial, it is good to be in something socially relevant,” Saif told IANS.
The movie is based on caste-based reservations in government jobs and educational institutions and will see Saif sporting a trimmed Zappa moustache without a goatee for his character.
