The Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan turns 45 on August 16 this year.
As his birthday falls just 12 days before his spy-thriller Phantom, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Kabir Khan, releases, the actor intends to spend the day in some sort of promotional activity. His wife, Kareena Kapoor Khan is also shooting currently. “In all likelihood, it will be a working birthday for both of them,” said a source. However, knowing how plans change in Bollywood, we’re sure there will be surprise dinners and lunches planned to mark the Nawab’s B-day.
Saif Ali Khan and Vikramaditya Motwane were in talks for a project and the two had been discussing it for months together. Now it turns we will have to wait longer to see them work together as the project in question may not happen at all. The actor we hear has opted out of the project.
So what happened? “The film was still in the scripting stage. There were some creative differences and the two decided to part ways. It is better not to continue when two people are not on the same page. Maybe they will collaborate on something else,” a source said.
Meanwhile, Vikramaditya might soon return to his other project which he had dropped after it did not work out with either Imran Khan or Sidharth Malhotra. Buzz is the filmmaker is planning to go ahead with a new face.

More recently, Saif Ali Khan was signed up for a campaign Bollywood Britain, where he promotes tourism in Britain and yes, Tanaaz’s company was the hand behind the deal. “Saif was the first B’wood star to go to a Burberry show and we were responsible for that project, that is how we came to know Saif.
