Actor Saif Ali Khan says he is excited to play Ravana in Om Raut’s Adipurush opposite Prabhas.
He called the character the ‘personification of vanity’. One of the most awaited films that the audiences are looking forward to is undoubtedly Adipurush starring Prabhas, Saif Ali Khan, and Kriti Sanon.
In a recent interview, Saif has opened up about how excited he is to play Ravana in Om Raut’s directorial, a pan-India mythological magnum opus film.
The actor said he will be training hard along with Prabhas to look bulkier than he actually is.“He (Om Raut) is going to make me larger than I am, but again, that might be giving it away.
There will be some trickery involved, but a lot of it is real. He wants us to train and look particularly tough. The point is that Ravana is India’s Satan, he’s the demon king. And I guess what drives him is vanity.
He is the personification of vanity. Everything comes from there – the doom that he prays for, the kingdom that he wants. His whole outlook is just incredibly clouded, blind, and vain.
He is a monster. He is strong and fun to play, in that sense. The whole point of the story is to overcome the monster,” Saif told. Saif then spoke about what the audiences can expect from the film’s story. He said, “That’s what the story is about. It’s about Lord Rama overcoming him.
