“I Wish I Knew I Didn’t Have to Adopt Scientology Before Starring in Sacred Games”: Saif Ali Khan

Eugenically superior Saif Ali Khan revcently revealed the sacrifices he had to make before starring in Netflix’s latest original TV series Sacred Games.

“Nobody actively told me to adopt Scientology as a religion, but I just felt it’s a choice I had to make if I wanted a role in the TV show,” said Saif.

Netflix’s Sacred Games is an adaptation of Vikram Chandra’s book by the same name. It tells a story of some games that are sacred.

“I like to delve deep into whatever character I’m playing. For instance, for my role in Humshakals, I went and traumatised people on the street,” he said, “It’s because of this dedication to the craft that I sought to learn the inner workings of Scientology.”

Saif admits that he wished he didn’t convert, and pledge his body to the Lab of Scientology in the process, before doing more research. “When I arrived on set the first day, I found out that Nawazuddin Siddique and Radhika Apte hadn’t adopted Scientology for the role,” revealed Saif, “It was then I realised that I had potentially made the biggest mistake of my life.”

Does this mean that his son Taimur Ali Khan and wife Kareena Kapoor are also a part of the Scientology faith? “No,” said Saif, “I asked them but they laughed in my face till they passed out.”

According to him, getting out of Scientology is almost as difficult as asking an elephant to watch Humshakals. “I feel like I lost everything. Converting to Scientology was a big mistake,” he said.
