makers to keep the actor underground who played the character of saeed.

‘Saif Ali Khan’ said that “Phantom is a mix of fact and fiction. Everyone knows who was the mastermind behind the 26/11 attacks. The way Kasab was sent to Mumbai to open fire at innocent people at the railway station and hotels, similarly in the film, we dabble with
the idea of sending a guy from India to kill the person behind the bomb blasts. That is where the fantasy lies, it’s an unbiased film.
Most of the people involved in making the film are Indian Muslims and also our positions are very clear that we are Indian first.”
