The popular and much-loved actor Saif Ali Khan is one of the finest actors of Bollywood with some outstanding projects being a part of his filmography. But, lately, he has been garnering comments for his latest film Adipurush. The film starring Prabhash and Kriti Sanon as Raghav and Janki was based on Hindu epic Ramayana. It also starred Saif Ali Khan in the role of Lankesh (Ravana).

The film failed to land on the high expectations of the audience and also failed to impress the masses. Not only did the film invite massive criticism and offend many individuals for different reasons but also was a failure both critically and commercially. While the film being a disaster was a hot topic of discussion for the longest time, the film’s team except writer and lyricist Manoj Muntashir did not address the controversies or the film’s failure. But now, Saif Ali Khan has stepped ahead and shared his feelings about the same.

In a conversation with Anupama Chopra on Film Companion, Saif Ali Khan spoke about the failure of Adipurush. He said that he feels he is not a star enough to pull off anything. He also went on to say, "I’ve never actually thought of myself as a star, and I don’t really want to also.

I like being a star, but I don’t want to be delusional. My parents are big stars, but very realistic, very normal. There’s so much more in life to be real about, my focus has always been on that. The idea is not to be scared of failing. People say, ‘That was a brave choice’ You talk about Adipurush, for example.

People talk about risks, but if you fall on your face, it’s not a risk really. You have to have a few of those also, and it’s a part of the approach. You have to shrug it off, feel bad, and say, ‘Nice try, but bad luck, let’s go to the next one’"

Talking about Adipurush, the film was made with a whopping budget of more than 600 crores. After major criticism of the film’s VFX, dialogues, story, visuals and more, a petition was filed to revoke the CBFC certification of the film was filed in the Supreme Court but was dismissed.
