As the good words come his way for his performance in the latest action-thriller Vikram Vedha, also starring Hrithik Roshan, national award-winning actor Saif Ali Khan says that he takes a note from the insightful reviews regarding his performance for future reference.

In conversation with a group of journalists in Mumbai post-release of the film, while asked how he takes reviews and criticism, Saif said, "I think I observe all the criticism. I like to read reviews, and I think people do reviews in a detailed fashion that gives an insight into our work. It is nice to read them because they point out certain important things that at some point I would like to apply. I hope."

Even though his screen presence was appreciated by the audience in the past, the critics and the global audience started noticing him after the release of the Netflix original series Sacred Games.

Since then, the actor has appeared in more interesting films like Kaalakaandi, Tanhaji, and Jawaani Jaaneman, to name a few.

Talking about the kind of offer he has been getting in recent times, Saif said, "At the end of the day, it is a job I am doing and I can only choose the best from whatever I am offered. Or I can wait until I get what I would love to do. For me, it is finding the balance between these two. Whatever projects come in my way, there are two types: one is a step back from what I did last, and two, a step forward. Ideally, I choose a project that gives me a step forward."

The actor further said, "I hope to get a more interesting offer, but I have to say that it is so nice that in recent times I have been offered some interesting work. I am really happy! It is also true that films have evolved quite a lot. I am glad I have outgrown that phase of rom-com. I am actually doing my kind of movies now...for instance, Vikram Vedha is my kind of film."

He also took a moment to thank Pushkar and Gayatri for casting him in the role of Vikram in the film.

"I loved my role in the film and I really am grateful for this," the actor added.

The film Vikram Vedha is directed by Pushkar and Gayatri and also features Rohit Saraf, Radhika Apte, Sharib Hashmi, and Satyadeep Mishra, and was released on September 30, theatrically.
