The cool dude from Dil Chahta Hai wowed us in two of the best movies of the year, in roles very different from the city slicker image many thought Saif Ali Khan was limited to.
In both Being Cyrus and Omkara, Saif was superlative. As Langda Tyagi in Omkara -- Iago in Shakespeare's Othello which director Vishal Bharadwaj adapted brilliantly -- Saif was stunning. Be it his dialect or his body language, we could only applaud.
His role in Being Cyrus was quite different, though it too was a negative one. Saif has been experimenting with the kind of roles he does. All we can say is, attaboy!
In 2007, we will catch Saif in the title role of Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Eklavya and Salaam Namaste director Siddharth Anand's next, Tara Rum Pum.
Bring 'em on!
