‘It will be hard to make film on my father’
Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan says he would love to make a film on father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi but also feels it will be an uphill task for him to get the nuances of the legendary cricketer right.
With the latest trend of biopics made on sportspersons in Bollywood, when asked if he is approached for a biopic on Pataudi, Saif said he is open to the idea given that the story has to be interesting.“Depends on the script. I feel most actors can’t (do it)... it’s difficult to play sports on screen convincingly.
He (father) was a stylish batsman.. how you imitate that. It would be <g data-gr-id="18">embarrassment</g> if I don’t do justice to it (film) as a son,” he said. “May be someone can make <g data-gr-id="16">film</g> on <g data-gr-id="17">him</g> but you can’t make a Bollywood (movie), he can’t sing songs.. you can make a bilingual or English. May be one can make English film for India depends on how the story is,” he said.
