Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , , , on October 29, 2014 by saifalikhanonline

After a disappointing run of his last few releases, Saif Ali Khan says he now wants to focus on making films that match his sensibilities.The 44-year-old actor, who last worked in much criticised multi-starrer comedy ‘Humshakals’, says he would like to go back to making movies like ‘Omkara’ and ‘Parineeta’ again.”I feel I lost touch with myself in recent times and I don’t know why. I was listening to other people’s conviction. I feel, it’s the time to do what I believe in and stick to my conviction and sensibilities whether I do films like ‘Parineeta’, ‘Omkara’ or ‘Hum Tum’.””I would like to do such films again. I have generally been an erratic person by nature, which I am being bored off now. I want to be more consistent now and give things right amount of respect,” Saif said in an interview.

On the directions of the election observer for the Pataudi assembly constituency Ajai Shankar Pandey, the notice has been issued to them by the returning officer-cum-SDM of Pataudi, Virender Chaudhary, a Haryana government release said.

“We got complaints from nearby residents mentioning that firecrackers and loud speakers were being used in the premises of the Pataudi palace which were disturbing them. On the basis of these complaints, we have issued notice to them under violation of Pollution Act,” SDM said.

They have been accused of using the loudspeaker, DJ and organising a “cocktail party” in Pataudi Palace last (Friday) evening allegedly without obtaining specific permission from the competent authority, the release said.

They have been charged with not obtaining licence for the bar for the party, it said.

The duo has been asked to explain their conduct by 3pm on October 21.

No one can play my father on screen: Saif Ali Khan

Saif has ruled out the possibility of a biopic on his father, late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi

The trend of making biopics on the lives of sporting legends seems to be fast catching on in Bollywood. Saif Ali Khan, son of late cricketing legend, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, was asked recently if he would like to essay the role of his father in a film, if given the opportunity. Saif feels that neither him nor any actor in the industry has the personality and the suaveness to play his father. “It’s very difficult to express his personality and narrate his achievements on screen. It’d require extreme and intimate detailing, which is very difficult. I can’t think of anyone who can do justice playing him on the big screen,” he said.

Being a producer, Saif understands the commercial viability biopics have, considering the success of films like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Mary Kom. Fast to pick a formula, filmmakers have announced projects on hockey legend Dhyan Chand and cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. But not one to follow the herd, Saif has announced that he has no plans of making a film based on the life of his father. However, he has revealed to close sources that top filmmakers have expressed their desire to work on the subject.

India is a mix and to deny this is to cheat ourselves of our inheritance, writes Saif Ali Khan

I am the son of a sportsman, I grew up in England, Bhopal, Pataudi, Delhi and Mumbai, and I am more Indian than any Hindu or Muslim I know because I am both. I wrote this piece not to comment on the masses or the problems of communalism in India and its villages, but because this is an issue that concerns my friends and their families.

It wasn’t peacefully accepted by anyone, initially, when my parents wanted to marry. The royals had their issues; the Brahmins theirs. And, of course, extremists on both religious sides issued death threats. But the marriage still happened ” the fact that my grandmother also had to fight to marry the not-as-wealthy and therefore not-so-suitable nawab of Pataudi might have helped things along. We grew up on real-life romantic stories about our elders marrying for love and not worrying too much about tradition. And we were brought up to believe that god is one, with many names.

5 trends that Saif Ali Khan is missing out on

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on October 15, 2014 by saifalikhanonline

The nawab of B-town, Saif Ali Khan may be known for his stylish ways, his firang twang, uber cool avatars; however when it comes to being trendy or following any popular trend, Saifu isn’t that active or willing. Here’s listing few points where Saif needs to get on with the on-going developments, which in turn, we believe, would benefit his star status:

Join social media:With the growing demand and importance of social media and where almost half the film industry is engaged with it , it’s a high time Saif considers joining it. While Saif always believed that there should be certain mystery around stars and joining the social networking sites would kill the aura of a star, the current trend suggests that it’s ideal to be on micro-blogging site! Having a micro-blogging page lends a status and the platform can be used for many purposes including film promotions.

Saif Ali Khan’s sense of humour

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on October 11, 2014 by saifalikhanonline

It would seem that Saif Ali Khan still hasn’t gotten over the debacle of Humshakals. The most recent was at an event where he was making a donation to the sports programme Olympic Gold Quest, of which he is the brand ambassador.

As he donated the sum of Rs 20 lakhs to the programme, Saif quipped, “I might have donated more but my last film (Humshakals) didn’t do too well, unfortunately.”

Even as the audience cracked up at this latest example of Saif’s tongue-in-cheek sense of humour, the actor continued on a more serious note: “I’m a product of the marriage of the two things that people here get excited about films and cricket. We are not a poor country but an imbalanced country, some of us have a lot and others don’t. You need more than just talent to reach to the top in sports.”
