Experiment   is important for longer,   respectable career: Saif

Mumbai: Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan believes sticking to one's comfort zone could be tempting, but it is important for an actor to experiment to have a longer and respectable career.

Saif found his groove with 2001's Dil Chahta Hai, a decade after being in the industry, and reinvented himself with Omkara.

He has now become one of India's first mainstream stars to venture into the digital space, with Netflix Original series 'Sacred Games'.

"If you've been successful at one type of thing, it could be tempting not to change that. But if you look at people who have slightly longer, wider and respected careers, they are the ones who have done different kinds of works," he said.

The actor says the country has "quite a mature film industry", where different types of movies are made and not only "commercial."

The 47-year-old actor believes good work cannot be done in isolation. "Watching the work of others is a good way of knowing what's happening around," he said.
