Happy to take a backseat in 'Go Goa Gone': Saif
New Delhi: It is for the first time that Saif Ali Khan is not playing the lead in his own production. The zombie comedy revolves around two guys, played by Vir Das and Kunal Khemu. Saif joins them later as Boris, the gun-toting zombie killer.
"I was more interested in this film as a producer than as an actor. Producing is a creative job as well and not every film will have a great role for you though Boris is very entertaining. I look forward to producing many more films where maybe I don't act at all," Saif told PTI over phone from Mumbai.
Produced by Saif's banner Illuminati Films, the film is directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the duo behind critically acclaimed films like '99' and 'Shor... In the City'. 'Go Goa Gone' hits theatres on May 10.
The actor-producer is confident that despite zombies being an alien concept for Indian audiences, the film will work in the comedy format.
"I always thought that the film was very funny. I don't think the concept is very alien and it works really well because it is a comedy. Sometimes if you take chances and try something new, it can be an exciting investment because the rewards can be big," he says.
Saif, 42, will be seen sporting blonde hair and tattoos in the film and the actor says he enjoyed experimenting with his look.
"The look was pretty much there in Raj and DK's script and I just agreed with it. You can get scared to do things which are not necessarily what your image is. But people take it in the right spirit when the intention is to entertain and be fun," says Saif.
