Saif Ali Khan played a double role in the beginning of his career, but he is doing a triple role for the first time in forthcoming comedy drama
. The actor believes his over two decades of experience in acting gave him the confidence to accept the role which a novice cannot handle.Son of actress Sharmila Tagore and late India cricket legend Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, Saif has come a long way as an actor. "It's not easy to experiment and I think I can do more than one title role with confidence, so I was enjoying that. I took a bit long to learn about my craft, but it's an actor's duty to entertain people... so this film is a commercial comedy," said Saif who started his career with duds like Aashik Aawara (1993) and Parampara (1992).
"It was very tiring because normal things don't interest Sajid. He is an encyclopaedia on films. He feels his safest genre with the audience is comedy and this ('Humshakals') is his type of comedy. So far it's looking positive," he said.
Tamannaah Bhatia, Esha Gupta and Bipasha Basu are playing the female leads in the film coming out Friday. This is Saif's first release of this year and he is looking forward to the film as his much-talked about Bullet Raja with director Tigmanshu Dhulia didn't work well at the box office.
