Saif Ali Khan, who plays a cop in Vikram Veda’s Hindi remake, played a police officer in Netflix Sacred Games. While the actor has not yet shared the details about the character, he teased that the role is very different from Sardaj Singh of Sacred Games.
The actor played a police officer who was pushed by his seniors in Sacred Games. On the verge of giving up his life, he gets a call from Ganesh Keithonde (played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui) who knows he has only 25 days to save Mumbai from disaster.
Speaking of differences, Syed called Sartaj a victim and he was taken away by almost everyone. “I would say, Sardaj Singh was a victim, he was slapped by almost everyone. His rise was somewhat different from that of a suicide. He was a problem and an honest guy,” he told Pingvilla.
“On the other hand, Vikram is a very tough, successful and intelligent IPS type officer. He is very energetic, confident and strong. Also, Vikram does not have a turban,” he added.
Vikram Veda also stars Hrithik Roshan. The film stars the actor as a gangster, a remake of the Tamil hit-near film starring R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead roles. Pushkar and Gayathri, who directed the original, will also direct the Hindi remake.
