Saif Ali Khan talks about his films at the trailer release of Kaalakaandi
Saif Ali Khan's next film Kaalakaandi has been much talked about lately. Recently, the first trailer of the movie was released.

Talking at the launch event of the film, Saif said, "If 'Padmavati' comes in (on 12th January), we will think of shifting our release date. I hope we don't have to do that. 'Kaalakaandi' is a film I am proud of."

Saif believed that good films should run parallel and that could reap good business. As quoted, "It would have been nice to see Kaalakaandi releasing with Padmavati, as it shows that we have a film industry which makes a different kind of movies. Personally, I feel its good time to have films releasing alongside one another. But filmmakers are wary about it and you need to take that into consideration."

The actor was all confident about his film. Off late, Saif's films have not fared well at the box office. Rangoon and Chef did see a lowering graph but Saif said that a movie's fate cannot deter his spirits. The actor was present at the trailer launch accompanied by the cast and crew of the film.

A mid-day report also quoted the actor saying, "It's easy to think that people no longer want to see me in a film. But I don't do that. I get my confidence back every time, irrespective of whether my film works or not. I'll keep working and hopefully, things will fall into place."

He spoke about his film Chef which had not performed up to his satisfaction. It was remake of a film. The actor had a few takes on the film. The 47-year-old explained the reasons behind the failure.

He said, "I like Raj's attempt. A director is my first audience. I think it was a little European in flavour, and the drama could have been a little more. I think he generally avoids drama. I think the palette of this film was a little western. I have also got a few good reviews, but then some things are really not in your control. I wish it had done better. But I think people like different kind of movies in India. I think they would have wanted to see more food, working in the New York kitchen or the high pressure job. I still think it was a good movie, and I enjoyed working in it. I don't think it was even publicised correct. I didn't see enough buzz around the film. I think people want to see big hoardings of the film, and maybe they would have liked it if I had promoted the film on Bigg Boss or Comedy Nights or something."
