Mumbai: He is one of the first mainstream actors to dabble into the digital platform and Saif Ali Khan believes his stint in a web series is only a way forward, not a step down.
The 47-year-old actor, who features in Netflix’s upcoming original show “Sacred Games”, said he felt liberated as a performer while working on the web series.
“It (web series) is not any way the come down, it is a step in new direction (for me as an actor). It is very liberating as an actor to have a platform (like Netflix) to act in,” Saif told PTI.
The actor said web series is the next in-thing today and he “jumped at the idea” of doing one when he was offered the project.
“There is a certain quality to Netflix, it is not (typical). It has an international feel to it. Also, Vikramaditya Motwane is a wonderful director, and is a responsible show runner.
“He is comparing us to ‘House of Cards’. It is going to be the best show coming out of India and I am hopeful everyone will be proud of it,” he said.
