“It’s good to be a solidly saleable actor” : Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , on January 15, 2014 by saifalikhanonline

His last release Bullet Raja may have not performed brilliantly at the box office but there is no denying that Saif Ali Khan aspires that his films do a business of Rs.100 crore and more. As Saif Ali Khan says, “It’s good to be a solidly saleable actor”. He is more settled in his married life now than he was the first time, and even jokes, “Hopefully, I am less of a nightmare.” As a doting dad he is concerned about son Ibrahim bunking school often, and as a husband complains that “Kareena is making me work more”. Excerpts from a hearty chat with the Nawab of Pataudi, and the actor who is getting better at his job.

Earlier you used to do one film at a time, now you’ve changed that strategy.

(Laughs) Slightly. No, it’s three films a year. One should work, one should be more prolific. And I’m excited to do that. I feel happy and settled in my life and I’m ready to focus on doing more things.

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , on December 2, 2013 by saifalikhanonline


Having spent two decades in the industry, there is only one thing Saif Ali Khan rues -the fact that he hasn’t been able to spend enough time with his children Ibrahim and Sara. He confesses that now that Sara is growing up, he’s also turning into a protective father. Saif says, “I recently met one of Sara’s boyfriends and that’s when I felt strangely protective but not overtly so. Having be en in a boarding school you realise that everyone has their own life and you learn to let go. The kids shouldn’t feel burdened; if you respect each other’s space then the relationship is enjoy able. But I haven’t been spending enough time with Ibrahim and I feel bad about that.“

Actor Saif Ali Khan, who played a fun-loving and friendly dad to his on-screen children in “Ta Ra Rum Pum”, says in real life he does not get enough time to spend with his children.

The 43-year-old has daughter Sara and son Ibrahim from his ex-wife and actress Amitra Singh. The two got divorced in 2004, after 13 years of marriage.

“Sara and I are like good friends. Ibrahim loves to play cricket. Both of us play sports together. But I don’t get much time to spend with him, but I would like to,” said Saif, who is now married to actress Kareena Kapoor.

“Don’t compare my son with my dad” : Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on November 25, 2013 by saifalikhanonline

He is the grandson of one of India’s greatest captains ever, late Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, and the great grandson of the legendary Iftikhar Ali Khan. So it hardly comes as a surprise that Saif Ali Khan’s son, Ibrahim, is showing interest in cricket. The 12-year-old, who studies at Dhirubhai Ambani International School (BKC) in Mumbai, is playing for the Giles Shield interschool cricket tournament.

And his father is clearly elated. “I am really happy that Ibrahim is taking interest in cricket. Right now, he is just having fun and enjoying the sport. So there shouldn’t be any kind of pressure on him. At this point, no one should even think of comparing him with his great grandfather (he played cricket for England and post-1947 for India as the captain) or grandfather. It would be really unfair on him,” says the actor.
Although Saif himself didn’t take up cricket, he has no regrets about it. “But if Ibrahim is interested in the sport, I would support him in whatever way I can,” says the actor. “But that (becoming a cricketer) will depend on him. Ibrahim can become whatever he wants. My parents never pressurised me to do anything. So there’s no question of me doing anything like that,” he adds.

`We need to be Ravans’ : Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan talks about Bullet Raja, the requirements to be a director’s actor and on leaving a legacy as “I .

Saif Ali Khan’s career has been yo-yoing recently with hits and misses. While Cocktail had the cash registers ringing, Agent Vinod and Go Goa Gone were disappointing.

The star is now looking forward to Bullet Raja with Sonakshi Sinha and hopes that the movie will work out in his favour.

“Bullet Raja shows a bakwas kind of system where the police and the mafia are involved. UP politics has been shown in a very interesting manner and one will definitely ask, `Wow, so much of corruption?’ The film showcases how while sitting in jail everything is handled through mobile phones,“ adds the actor.

Wonderful interview with Saif Ali Khan on Bullett Raja and his father

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , , , , on November 16, 2013 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan, 43, is not only charming and well-behaved, but he is discerning and emotional. He is not just a nice blend of his parents, but is a great example of a modern-minded person, who values tradition. He considers himself a schizophrenic jigsaw of many positive and negative qualities and feels privileged of the many influences that work in his head, ranging from hot dog to foie gras and red wine. Ahead of his upcoming action thriller, Bullett Raja, he talks about his elegant father, his undemanding wife and his need for making enough money in life. Excerpts:

How do you feel at this point in your life?
I feel great. I just want to make enough money, in order to live the way I would like to. And what is exciting is the fact that I am on track on that as well, provided I am not unlucky.

What do you want the money for?
A comfortable life to look after my family and be peaceful. Things will get more and more expensive as time goes by. I’d like to spend time in Pataudi and London. We are also at a building stage where we are doing up our flat right now. I will soon be doing up Pataudi. I am sort of financially structuring my life and I guess that is why I am thinking about money.

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on September 23, 2013 by saifalikhanonline

With an illustrious cricketing background running in the family, it isn’t surprising that Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s 12-year-old son Ibrahim chose to play the sport.

With Iftikhar Ali Khan and Mansur Ali Khan ‘Tiger’ Pataudi as his great grandfather and grandfather respectively, Ibrahim is carrying forward the legacy as he gets ready to take baby steps on the cricket field.

Iftikhar and Tiger captained the Indian cricket. Ibrahim, the son of Saif and his first wife Amrita Singh, will make his Mumbai Schools Sports Association (MSSA) debut by playing for Dhirubhai Ambani International School (BKC) in the Giles Shield inter-school cricket tournament for boys U-14 in November this year.

Confirming the news, a Dhirubhai Ambani school official said, “Yes, Ibrahim will play in the MSSA’s cricket tournament this year.” The Class VII student is looking forward to play for the school.

He has been practising with the team from the time school reopened. “Though he is a star’s son, he is a normal cricketer for us. I hope he performs in the tournament,” the official added.
