Saif Ali Khan plays a wealthy Parsi filmmaker in Vishal Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon, which also stars Shahid and Kangana and released in theatres on Friday, February 24.

Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon, starring Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan, released on Friday, February 24, and has received a mixed response from the audience. People are lauding the fine performances by the cast.

Saif has delivered a stupendous performance as Rusi Billimoria – a wealthy Parsi filmmaker – who leads a royal lifestyle and believes that British rule is the best for India’s growth. Although he is suave and romantic, his actions are also rough and violent.

This is Saif’s second outing with Bhardwaj, with whom he earlier worked in Omkara, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello. If you have watched Omkara – the brilliant masterpiece – you will surely agree that Saif had delivered his best performance in his then career span of 13 years. Although the actor didn’t play the lead character, he had a prominent role and broke the impression of being an average actor. In Rangoon too, the charming Nawab of Pataudi leaves everyone in awe with his remarkable and hard-hitting acting chops.

A heartbroken woman who was lured into a 14-month relationship by a married father with a fake Tinder account is demanding a change in the law to make ‘catfishing’ illegal. The man had used a picture of noted Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan on his Tinder account.

According to a dailymail.co.uk report, Anna Rowe, 44, met a man calling himself ‘Antony Ray’ after they matched on the dating app and they met up after three months of talking online.

He told her they were ‘creating something special’ and would refer to her as ‘Mrs Ray’ and ‘future wife’ during thousands of messages, though he made excuses for why he could only meet up with her sporadically, the report added.

But she eventually became suspicious and hired a private investigator, who revealed that he was a married father with a separate mobile phone and social media accounts to conduct his affairs.

Ms Rowe, a teaching assistant from Canterbury, Kent, had become a victim of ‘catfishing’, the process of using fake accounts and sometime pictures to create a false identity and lure someone into a relationship.

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are among the very few B-Town celebs who have remained away from the social media platforms. Neither Kareena nor Saif have expressed any inkling to be on social media.

Infact, recently, when Saif graced the couch on Koffee With Karan, he expressed why he never felt the need to jump into the rat race of having a particular number of followers etc on social media. But looks like the Nawab has finally decided to make his debut on Instagram.

Why do we say so? Well we came across this private account on Instagram which goes by the name of ‘saifakpataudi’ and the description in its bio reads, “Official account on Instagram. Will make my Instagram handle public on 1/3/2017”

Rangoon: Top 5 reasons to watch Saif Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut movie

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on February 24, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming movie Rangoon, starring Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, is all set to be released on February 24. Rangoon is a love triangle set in the backdrop of World War 2.

Rangoon is one of the most awaited flicks of this year and the film has been getting positive reviews from the celebrities after a special screening. Fans too are excited to watch the movie in theatres.

Kangana plays the character of a yesteryear actress, Shahid is seen as a soldier and Saif portrays the role of a film-maker. The trailer of the movie suggests that Kangana’s character is in fact in love with Saif’s character, but is later attracted to Shahid’s character due to change in circumstances.

Here are the top 5 reasons to watch Rangoon this Friday:

1) This is the first time Kangana, Shahid and Saif have teamed up for a film. With such a brilliant star cast, Rangoon is likely to be a great experience.

2) After directing the master piece Haider, Vishal Bhardwaj is now back with Rangoon. With the kind of excellence that Haider had, expectations from Rangoon are even higher.

3) Rangoon has some steamy romance between Kangana and Shahid and the actress will also be seen in some bold love-making scenes in the movie.

4) Rangoon is reportedly based on the life of Mary Ann Evans aka Fearless Nadia. She was Bollywood’s first original stunt woman and is best known for her role in the film Hunterwali.

5) The movie appears to be a wonderful mix of love, betrayal, romance, emotion and action. Rangoon apparently has all the elements of a commercial film, along with an amazing story and some stellar performances.

A Peep into Rangoon Actor Saif Ali Khan’s Fitness and Not So Nawabi Diet

The charming Nawab is back and how. Actor Saif Ali Khan’s much talked about film based in the backdrop of Second World War, Rangoon, hits the cinemas on 24th February, co-starring Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut. Rangoon would be Saif’s second outing with director Vishal Bhardwaj. The actor-director duo delivered the blockbuster hit Omkara in the year 2006. Often touted as his best performance till date, Khan’s rendition of ‘Langda Tyagi’ brought him many accolades and awards which long evaded the star. Naturally then, the mere announcement of his collaboration with Vishal Bhardwaj a decade post Omkara was enough to excite the cinephiles of the country.

On collaborating with Vishal Bhardwaj for the second time, Saif in an interview with NDTV said, “With Vishal you feel like a sophisticated actor, you feel like you are playing something that you don’t initially connect to but needs a bit of work to create. With his films you dress up as someone, somewhat handicapped or something, like in Omkara we had the limp, in Rangoon he is missing an arm.”

Get the look: Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on February 23, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

There’s no doubt that Saif Ali Khan is one of the most well turned out guys in India. When men struggle to wear a tux with, Saif can pull off a while three-piece suit like a don – evident at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last year where he won the Most Stylish award.

Most actors borrow style from their reel life roles. Not Saif. He plays it the other way around and nails it. In Rangoon, which releases this Friday, the blue-blooded Nawab takes his classic charm to character Rustom Billimoria, a film producer in the Burma of World War II. With a devilish pencil moustache and his hair slicked back, Saif, who was inspired by his grandfather Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi’s style, looks every inch the movie Mafioso of a refined era.

In the movie, you’ll find him in a sharp pinstriped double-breasted jacket with a freshly plucked rose in his buttonhole. He’s always wearing a pocket square or cravat. His jacket-over-Jodhpurs look with riding boots are a portrait of a young Iftikhar. Even a pocket watch that his grandfather carried and was passed down to Saif, makes it to a scene.

Saif’s outfits are on point with a generation of men who made an effort to present themselves well, regardless of whether they were born wealthy. They dressed up for work – whatever their profession. And even though they didn’t have access to an army of stylists, wearing a glistening tie bar on a jacquard cravat or a meticulously tailored suit was de riguer.

Luckily for you, with a little effort, you can look just as elegant. Start by building a wardrobe of classic pieces – a crisp white shirt, a pair of Jodhpurs, trousers and a few polo shirts. Note here that when you buy, fit and quality is off utmost importance. Then add a few neutral-coloured pocket squares, printed cravats and solid ties to your accessories drawer. Top it off with riding boots and an heirloom piece, if you can. Truth is that you don’t need to own a lot to look this good. Let Saif show you how it’s done.

Did you know that this outher actor was first approached for Fawad Khan’s role in ‘Kapoor & Sons’

The year 2016 gave us one of the most remarkable movies from Dharma Productions, Kapoor & Sons and Fawad Khan won a million hearts for the portrayal of his character in it. But did you know that he was not the first choice for the role?

Yes, Karan Johar himself revealed that Fawad was not the first choice for the said role. It was Saif Ali Khan who was approached for it first. This revelation happened on the latest episode of Koffee With Karan after which Saif seemingly looked regretful for rejecting it. Saif even went ahead to reveal how kareena called him ‘stupid’ for saying no to it. He said, ““And with a wife at home saying you have been incredibly stupid Shakun is one of the best directors you will work with.”
