Saif Ali Khan heading to Kolkata

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , on February 9, 2016 by saifalikhanonline

WE caught actor Saif Ali Khan on a flight to Kolkata over the weekend. He was there for a show there with theatre producer Ashvin Gidwani. The troupe onboard included MF Husain’s photographer grandson, Salamat. Saif should feel at home in Kolkata since his mother, the beautiful veteran actor Sharmila Tagore, hails from here. His mum was in Loreto College in mid 60s, but a ‘casual’ student since she was already a Ray discovery. In Kolkata too bloomed the SharmilaTiger romance. A certain gangly guy called Amitabh Bachchan was also around as a ‘boxwallah’ in the olden Calcutta. Saif had ample time to be nostalgic, since he really wasn’t bothered with too many selfie-seeking fans on the flight.

In a major decision Bhopal district administration has put on hold registrations of ‘enemy properties’ in the state capital. Decision includes a list of 133 properties in and around Bhopal that has been identified as ‘enemy property’. It includes about 1,600 acre of residential, community and agricultural land worth crores in and around the city.Additional diistrict magistrate (ADM) and Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) has been directed to collect information about properties, said district collector Nishant Warwade on Tuesday.

similar directive to the office of registrar seeks a freeze on registration of enemy properties.Most areas affected in the process are likely to be Bairagarh, Gandhi Nagar, Koh-e-Fiza, Nishatpura, Malikheda, Narela, Inotia and Sultanpur among others.District administration also sought for directions from the Custodian of Enemy property of India (CEPI) for remuneration of a team of six retired revenue officers, who have been assigned the task to assess properties of the erstwhile Nawab of Bhopal Hamidullah Khan and his daughter Abida Sultaan. The team has begun its survey.Exercise to prepare a consolidated list was first carried out after a vesting order under Enemy Property Act 1968 of moveable and immovable properties of the last Nawab of Bhopal in February last year. CEPI vesting order impacted the royal properties in Bhopal which according to the merger agreement, said officials, has been segregated as the personal properties of the Nawab, properties of his family members owned solely and properties of his family members which have mixed ownership.Vesting order has been challenged by actor Saif Ali Khan in MP high court and a stay on the issue has been granted in favour of Pataudi family.

Saif Ali Khan’s love affair with the Ford Mustang

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , on January 27, 2016 by saifalikhanonline

Ford is launching the new Mustang in India on January 28, 2016. For some, it will be just another new car. For others it will be another new fast performance car, albeit one made in America. But for some hard core enthusiasts, it will be the ‘homecoming’ of an iconic car with which they have had a lifelong affair.

Yes, few know that the Ford Mustang has a great fan following in India and after the launch of the first generation in 1964, many made their way to India. Amongst the early owners of the Ford Mustang was the Hindi film industry’s first superstar, Rajesh Khanna. Famed film actor, director and producer Sunil Dutt also had a Mustang and he was often seen driving it down Marine Drive in Mumbai. Renowned film actress Nutan too had a Mustang and it’s still with her son Mohnish Behl. Saif Ali Khan also owns a red 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500.

Sharmila Tagore talks about Saif Ali Khan and Soha

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , on January 26, 2016 by saifalikhanonline

Movie veteran Sharmila Tagore describes herself as a “working actor”, and says she doesn’t believe in star status.

“Also we call ourselves working actors. I don’t believe in the star status because somehow you get disengaged from life… once you are in that place, then you are not in touch with (people). I would like to mingle with people,” Sharmila said on Monday at the Tata Steel Kolkata Literary Meet here.

Asked by audience members on whether her children, actors Saif and Soha, have picked up her advice on their careers, the multiple National Award winner said she had never exhibited her stardom at home.

“They have seen that (how I mingle with people). They have learnt from examples. They have seen me work and learnt the value of hard work.

“They have never seen me becoming a star at home. I think they have taken a bit from that, even Saif, who is in another galaxy. Even then he is very much a normal person. They have learnt from seeing their mother more than any verbal advice,” she added.

Indian advertising thrives on family ties – Saif Ali Khan and Soha in Asian Paints

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on January 23, 2016 by saifalikhanonline

Highlighting relationships in campaigns is all very well, but what happens to advertising that features celebrities and their family members?

For Arun Iyer, chief creative officer at advertising agency Lowe Lintas, it was a casting coup of sorts. For the agency’s latest advertising film for Tanishq, the jewellery brand from Titan Co. Ltd, they roped in film star Deepika Padukone’s parents Prakash and Ujjala Padukone. Iyer says the decision, taken jointly by the ad agency’s creative team and its client Tanishq, was easy as they had already cast Deepika Padukone and her mother in a Mother’s Day ad for the brand six months ago. Tanishq had signed on the film star, currently among the hottest brand ambassadors, in May this year through her representatives, talent management company CAA Kwan.

Iyer says the idea to get Deepika Padukone’s parents for Tanishq’s Diwali ad emanated from the agency’s briefing sessions with the client where it explained its design philosophy for Divyam, the heritage gold jewellery collection that was to be promoted.

Saif Ali Khan lawyer: ‘Enemy’ ordinance won’t hurt

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , on January 11, 2016 by saifalikhanonline

Amendment to Enemy Property Act, 1968, which allows the ‘custodian’ to continue to hold sway over such properties, will not have an impact on royal properties in Bhopal, said actor Saif Ali Khan’s lawyer.

Last February, Office of Custodian of Enemy Properties for India (CEPI) on paper vested control of all personal properties belonging to the last Nawab of Bhopal State, Hamidullah Khan and sent notice to heir actor Saif Ali Khan. Saif’s grandmother Sajida Sultan was married to Nawab of Pataudi Iftekar Ali Khan.

“Sajida Sultan was declared legal heir to Hamidullah Khan’s properties by Indian government in 1961 through a gazette notification. We have a stay from the MP High Court against CEPI vesting order,” said Jabalpur-based lawyer Rajesh Pancholi, who represents the actor’s family.

Saif Ali Khan to perform at Saifai closing ceremony

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , on January 10, 2016 by saifalikhanonline

The annual Saifai Mahotsav plays host to some of the most celebrated actors and artistes from Bollywood every year. This time, while the Mahotsav has been rather low-key, the closing ceremony on January 11 promises to be grand, with Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan set to perform there.

Last year the Saifai Mahotsav had made national news when actor Salman Khan had performed there. The star had been invited by the UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav along with Madhuri Dixit, Ranveer Singh, Mallika Sherwat, Huma Qureshi and Ellie Avram.

While music directors Sajid-Wajid gave a performance at the mahotsav last year, this year rapster Badhshah has been invited to be part of the show.

“Saif and Kareena are the main performers this year along with Badshah, but some 35-40 other performers are expected too, of which a few will be film actors as well,” says a source from Saifai.
