Mega grossers like LOVE AAJ KAL and RACE  have made Saif Ali Khan knock the doors of Top-5 quite furiously. While Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan are firmly placed in the top league, he too is not quite far away.
Laughs Saif, "I don't know much about that. All such number placement is for other people to state, study and analyze. As for me, I know today that I am in a position to make the film that I want to make. I am also confident that the film which I would make will carry some meaning to people. My project should now carry certain amount of weight and direction and for that one has to be a bankable star."
He continues to shrug away the entire numbers game. "This Top-5 or Top-10 business is quite fluctuating actually so one should not be worried about it. There is no point being attached to a certain tag. What you should worry about more is that now since people have higher expectations from you, you should deliver even better in your next assignments. Bas log joote nahi maarne chahiye aapki film dekh kar!"
Meanwhile he is highly excited about the 27th November release of his next film KURBAAN.
"As a Muslim I feel proud of the fact that I have done this film", declares Saif, "This is one of the most socially relevant films today. It is good that it is coming at just the time when our country needs cinema like this."
A Karan Johar production which is directed by debutant Rensil D'Silva, KURBAAN stars Kareena Kapoor as the female protagonist along with Vivek Oberoi, Dia Mirza, Kirron Kher and Om Puri.
