Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan says doing his last movie Baazaar" was a big risk, and he is glad that it paid off well. In the film, Saif portrays role of a small town boy who becomes the wolf of the stock trading market, is known for his business acumen and understands "only maths".
"My role in 'Baazaar' was challenging for many reasons. Apart from exploring a subject centered around the stock market, which hasn't been done before, my character was also very layered with shades of grey," Saif said in a statement to IANS. "It was a risk and I'm glad it paid off," he added.
"Baazaar", a film on stocks, money and crime, also stars Chitrangda Singh and Radhika Apte. The Gauravv K. Chawla directorial is being appreciated for tackling a different subject in a relatable manner.

Of late, Saif has had a dry run at the box office with his films Happy Ending, Rangoon, Chef and Kaalakandi failing to work at box office. “I really don’t know how something runs and something does not run... If I knew, I would be doing films which just run. I don’t have an answer to it. It is good if films collect good money because so many people have invested so much money in the films. It does bother me, I would be lying if I say it does not bother me. But it (collections) does not affect my confidence because I know these things go up and down in life,” he said.
