The actor has only countable number of movies which were hit at the box Office, rest just spelled DISASTER. Even though the actor won his Filmfare Best Debutant Award for Aashiq Awara (1993), he made his debut with a supporting role in Yash Chopra's directorial Parampara (1992), which had Aamir Khan, Sunil Dutt and Vinod Khanna in the lead. It's quite ironical that in spite of being in the business for such a long time, most of the initial success that he achieved in his career came from films where he played second lead.
The films in which he is the main lead or if the story revolves around him, the films seem to fail at the BO. During the fantastic phase in his career, Saif delivered some dominant performances which won critical acclaim: Ek Hasina Thi (2004), Parineeta (2005) : Nominated Filmfare Award for Best Actor, Being Cyrus (2006) and Omkara (2006) : Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role. Special mention for his Langda Tyagi act in Omkara - one of the best negative performance of the decade and by far the actor's best. So looks like it's best if he sticks to multi-starrers or play second lead like in Kal Ho Na Ho or Omkara.
The actor has skills, we have seen that in Omkara, but something isn't just working for him when it comes to choosing the scripts. Check out his top ten disastrous movies in Bollywood.
