Saif Ali Khan hoping for a better 2018

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on November 21, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan’s promising crime thriller ‘Baazaar’ has been delayed from its planned release of December 2017. Buzz suggests that the Gauravv K Chawla project has a few changes to be incorporated due to which, the film may not meet the deadline of 2017 and has been pushed to 2018. Interestingly, this is not the only film of Saif Ali Khan that’s facing a delay. The much talked about ‘Kaalakaandi’ too has not seen the light of the day. The makers are now planning for a complete digital release of ‘Kaalakaandi’, which is directed by Akshat Verma.

Saif Ali Khan has had two big screen releases this year, ‘Rangoon’ and ‘Chef’. Both these films performed poorly at the box office. Moving away from Bollywood, Saif recently bowed out of mini-series based on Subhash Chandra Bose, directed by Kabir Khan. The actor will soon feature in a Netflix original ‘Sacred Games’, with Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane working on the project.

I worry and think of life because of Taimur: Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , on November 19, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan is a worried man — not because of his career, but the future of his newborn son, Taimur. The actor, 47, revealed that having got older and more experienced, the future constantly worries him — especially after the heart problem he suffered a few years back. “He is someone I am responsible for. When my older children Sara and Ibrahim were born, I was younger.

But, I am no longer 25. I will be old when he is in school, that is, if I am alive,” he said.

“I will be 67 when he’s 20. I will have to teach him a lot of things, it’s like dealing with the final project.”

Saif Ali Khan: It’s not enough for a movie star to do films; they have to be successful too

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , on November 18, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Actor Saif Ali Khan wants stars to take responsibility in making films that are more reflective of the Indian society, as he feels it is the stars’ prerogative to back such cinema.

As a star, Saif Ali Khan admits to feeling the burden of delivering successful films one after another. “A movie star is supposed to do successful films. It’s not enough for a movie star to do films. They have to be successful as well. Someone is putting their money into it, and they expect a certain kind of a return from that star. You can have a few flops, here or there, but it cannot be the general state of things,” he explains.

Despite backing content-driven cinema in the past, Saif says that the industry remains star-driven.

“When a star is working in the film, there are expectations of financial rewards for people that are associated with the project. When they sign a star, they get that edge [over others] at the box-office. Even the audience, sometimes, looks at the star, rather than the film. It is still a star-driven industry,” Saif muses.

Saif Ali Khan to patch up with Dinesh Vijan

The Bollywood star and filmmaker friend Dinesh Vijan are open to becoming a team again

A patch-up seems to be on the cards for Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan, after they parted ways three years ago. The duo floated Illuminati Films as partners and gave hits like Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail. However, their partnership ended in 2014, following differences after a couple of their films like Lekar Hum Deewana Dil and Happy Ending tanked. While issuing a statement, Saif had said that the split was amicable and profitable to both as they could produce more films individually. As it turned out, the statement was reportedly only partly true.

When their split became a reality, the two erstwhile friends started separate companies — Saif continued with Illuminati and Dinesh launched his banner, Maddock Films.

SAIF ALI KHAN

TAIMUR IS THE BIGGEST STAR

You’d expect the li’l Nawab Taimur to be spoilt silly. But, looks like Papa Nawab , Saif Ali Khan, is mindful that along with the blue blood privilege will also come responsibilities and pressure. The Chef actor said, “Taimur is the biggest star in the family,” alluding to all the attention from the paps, media, and fans. Saif adds that along with the attention, Taimur will have to be aware of certain responsibilities.

Saif Ali Khan on Sara Ali Khan: What worries me is how she will deal with failure

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , on November 4, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. Sara has already started shooting for the same and is paired opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.

When Saif was asked about Sara’s Bollywood debut, like any other father, the actor stated to a leading tabloid, “I am concerned for her, which is pretty normal for any father. But, I wouldn’t say I am nervous because I am not living vicariously through her.”

“What worries me is the kind of relationships she is going to have. Or for that matter, how she will deal with failure — will she get upset and cry about them? These are things that niggle at me,” Saif continued.

Regarding Sara being independent and making her own decisions at an early age, the actor said, “She simply came to me and told me that she is doing Kedarnath. We never discussed the script in detail, as I don’t think my opinion matters. Since it is her independent decision, she is happy to either fly with it or go down with it.”
Saif is also extremely happy for his daughter and added, “I’m happy Sara is doing something she is passionate about. The only thing I have told her is to stay true to her job as an artist. But Kareena [Kapoor Khan] pointed out that I started taking interest in my work only recently and found my way. I hope she too finds her way.”

Kunal Kemmu and Soha Ali Khan have been married for a few years now and the couple also welcomed their first baby — daughter Inaaya Naumi last month.

But Kunal says he’s fond of kids. “I believe, I have a special bond with kids. I’m extremely close to Saif Ali Khan’s kids Sara and Ibrahim as well.” We have seen him and Ibrahim bond at several family dos. People who have seen them together say they are more like friends. Kunal smiles, “Ibrahim is an extremely fun guy. We just went diving together. He loves sports and we connect a lot on that. When you treat them as equals and not kids, then it makes all the difference. I don’t know if I do it willingly but I want to know what they are doing — what’s happening in their life now. It’s more fun to listen to somebody than just talk.”
