When we talk about style, accent and a trademark ‘wow’, the first person to come to any Bollywood lover’s mind is one name- Saif Ali Khan!

Saif Ali Khan turns 44 and on his special day, we take you down the memory lane of his beginning, his struggle and his reign in Bollywood.

The Beginning: Born to cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and actress Sharmila Tagore, Saif Ali Khan had a lavish education. However, following his mother’s footsteps he went on to make a career in Bollywood. At the age of 23, he made his debut with the film Aashiq Awara. It was in the following year that Saif actually found recognition with the film Yeh Dillagi. Only a few films of his became successful like Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Tu Chor Main Sipahi, Tu Chor Main Sipahi.

The Struggle: After a series of flops came Hum Saath Saath Hain. Saif finally got to act in a film with reputed cast and an established production house. This brought him back into the limelight after a long while. He had to struggle quite a bit to find his place in Bollywood. Most of his films such as Dil Chahta Hain, Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein, Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein, LOC Kargil were all multistarrers.

We hear from our sources that Saif’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan also visited him in London to be with him on his special day, on August 16.

Sara dearly missed her dad and wanted to see him, as she had not seen him in a long time due to his busy schedule, with his professional commitments! Saif was earlier shooting for Kabir Khan’s Phantom first in Canada and then in London where he is still shooting for the same film. Without any further ado, Sara took off for London to spend some quality time with him plus celebrate his birthday.

Kareena, who celebrates Saif’s birthday with zest every year, also decided to give the release of her film, Singham Returns a miss, to be with Saifu and even planned a surprise party for him. She organised a get together with a few of his friends from Winchester College. Sources say, “She had finished wrapping up the promotions of the movie by then and couldn’t wait to join Saif in London. Kareena and Sara then celebrated his birthday with him and some of his school friends.” Lucky Saifu, we must say!

Saif Ali Khan: I pledged to become like Amitabh Bachchan

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on August 17, 2014 by saifalikhanonline

Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s rise as an actor has been astounding. From being discarded as a wooden actor to winning six Filmfare Awards and a National Award; Saif Ali Khan not only tight lipped his critics but also made his parents proud. August 16 marks the actor’s birthday; we wish him birthday greetings and reveals the readers about who inspired Saif Ali Khan to be an actor?

Born in a family of nawabs and cricket enthusiasts, Saif Ali Khan’s career was almost certain in the field of cricket. His father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi was India’s youngest and most popular captain and his paternal grandfather, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, played cricket for England and later represented India as a captain, after independence. Thus Saif’s fate of taking cricket as a career was certain. But the question arises who inspired young Saif to pursue acting and not take up cricket?

In an interview Saif acknowledged, “It’s true that in our family, cricket runs in our blood. Even I played cricket. But once, when I was about 6 or 7 year old, I visited Filmcity where my mom (renowned actress Sharmila Tagore) was shooting. There I happened to see a tall actor with deep baritone acting opposite my mom. I was bowled over by his exceptional histrionics and I asked my mother his name. She informed his name is Amitabh Bachchan. That day itself, I took a pledge to become an actor like him when I grew up.”

We all know that the actor has been having nightmares about the trauma of playing a triple role in Humshakals. Despite having a bad experience, Saif is willing to give it another try. Apparently, Saif was approached to play a triple role in an ad film.

Reluctant and apprehensive, the actor took a few days to make up his mind about endorsing the brand. Wary of not wanting to repeat the Humshakals fiasco, Saif personally styled the three different looks in the ad film.

We guess he didn’t want to take a chance! And we can’t wait to see his teen avatars!

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , on August 10, 2014 by saifalikhanonline

Following the complaint filed by activist SC Agarwal there were rumours that actor Saif Ali Khan may be stripped of the Padma Award given to him in 2010. The activists complaint says that Mr Khan should not be allowed to retain the award-conferred by President Pratibha Patil on him for his contribution as an artist as there is a case in a Mumbai court against the actor for assaulting an Indian businessman from South Africa at the five-star Taj Hotel in Colaba, Mumbai in 2012.

Saif known to be a gentleman within the industry is currently shooting in London. He reacted to this controversy and told the India Today group, “I am extremely satisfied and happy and even proud of the way the govt has responded to the applicant..it is a fair and balanced opinion that should put the matter to rest.?”

The 43-year-old actor allegedly got into a scuffle in February 2012, with a South African based businessman following which a complaint was filed against the actor and his two friends.

Saif clearly in no mood to take the controversy ahead tried to put the matter to rest.
