Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan is getting ready for his latest release Bhoot Police, an upcoming horror-comedy. In a recent interview with PTI, the actor shared his insights about religion and spirituality and said though he is spiritual and too much religion worries him. The actor also termed himself as “agonistic”, which is similar to his character in the movie.

Saif Ali Khan plays the role of a ghostbuster in the Pavan Kirpalani directorial, which also stars Arjun Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez. The actor further revealed that he is secular and he thinks that religion emphasises the afterlife, but not enough on the present life.

Sharing more about his viewpoint on God, he said that too much religion creates too many problems relating to ‘your God’ and ‘my God’, and whose God is better. He also added that though he believes in a higher power or spirit, he has no idea what that power is.

The Bhoot Police actor also said that he is not sure about the afterlife and that he gets a sad feeling thinking once we die, the lights are out. It ends then and there is nothing more to it, he likes to believe but is not 100% sure. 

Talking more about the film, the actor said that Bhoot Police was tiring, though he enjoyed it. He also thinks that for the acceptance of Hindi audiences towards the horror genre, one needs to work hard and find something fresh. 

Bhoot Police was originally scheduled to be released in theatres on September 10, but the makers decided to go for an OTT release due to the pandemic. The film will be now released on Disney+Hotstar on the same date.
