Saif Ali Khan on his wife and her brother’s positive reaction to his film Phantom; says he only takes his audience’s reaction seriously
After Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kabir Khan is all set to woo the audience with his latest thriller Phantom which hit the screens today. The film, which stars, Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead, has already been in the buzz even before it released.
Recently, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ranbir Kapoor watched the film in what was a special screening of the film. Ask him about it and he says, “I didn’t have a special screening for Kareena and Ranbir. We saw it with the other cast and crew of the film. I never have special screenings of my films. Actually, I hate the idea of special screening because then people have to tell you what they think about the film and I don’t want to hear it. I have never done it.”
Did Kareena and Ranbir like the film? “Kareena said she loved the film. I don’t know how seriously to take her because she is my wife. So, she is just being very nice, maybe. But she kept saying she liked it, which is very nice. Ranbir also said he liked the film. But I don’t know how seriously to take him either. I don’t take anybody seriously except for my audience. If somebody said they didn’t like it, I don’t want to hear that also,” Saif adds.
Phantom is inspired from Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mumbai Avengers which is based on 26/11 Mumbai attacks. Even after seven years of the fateful incident, it still lingers in the minds of every Indian. Speaking on the same, Saif says, “The idea of the film is that even if you can’t relate to the movie, you can watch it as a thriller also. But hopefully people will relate.”
