Dynamic lifestyle brand Spunk consisting of uniquely designed footwear, apparel and accessories made its way into the competitive and challenging market. They have chosen the Nawab of Pataudi Saif Ali Khan as their brand ambassador. Saif did the honours by launching the brand at the event at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai.

The tagline of the brand is- HAPPY, CRAZY AND ENERGY and that goes well with the personality of Saif. Saif is also known as one of the best looking actors in the industry with an excellent fashion sense. He is usually on the list of most well-dressed men of the Hindi Film Industry.

Spunk is a brand that celebrates the new and youthful clan that lives free and expresses itself with all its passion and energy through colours, fashion, music, art, dance, innovative designs and across varied canvasses.

We were the first to tell you that the current Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan and his begum Kareena Kapoor Khan are taking an active interest in redoing their ancestral home in Pataudi.

We hear that the project is progressing well and Saifeena hope to throw a section of the palace open to guests around October this year.

Our source says, “If things stay on course, the first function that could be held in the newly decorated palace may be the wedding anniversary celebrations of the royal couple that falls on October 16.“

One also hears that the walls of the palace will pay homage to India’s cricketing history as some rare photographs of the earlier Nawab of Pataudi, the legendary Mansoor Ali Khan, will adorn them.

The actor defends mother Sharmila Tagore after the new censor board chief, Pahlaj Nihalani, accuses her of bending rules for his 2006 film

Already under fire for a list of words to be banned from films that was recently issued by the Central Board of Film Certification, the board’s new chief, Pahlaj Nihalani, is in the news again. In a recent interview to a TV channel, he targeted one of the former chairpersons, Sharmila Tagore, under whose leadership, several films that had expletives in their dialogues were passed. He cited the example of Omkara (2006), hinting that it was cleared because it starred her son, Saif Ali Khan.

“Omkara was her son Saif Ali Khan’s film. The board cleared it after being pressurised by her, which set the trend and release of films like Gangs of Wasseypur happened,” Nihalani was quoted as saying.

Now, Saif has come out in support of his mother. “She is a liberal, extremely intelligent and experienced chairperson. We should always have a censor chief like her, but too often, we will have someone less passionate about cinema and more political-minded,” says the actor, adding, “Having said that, I love Pahlaj ji. He is liberal, and is a great lover of cinema too. He’s entitled to his opinion. But, I cannot imagine my mother bending rules for her children; she is too fair.”

Saif Ali Khan stars in new campaign for mouth freshener Pan Bahar

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , on February 21, 2015 by saifalikhanonline

What began as an idea to bring a small but ground-breaking addition to the tradition of enjoying the pan (ethnic Indian mouth freshener), is today a multi-billion dollar industry.

Pan Bahar, the pioneers and the primary manufacturers of Pan Masala, are known to the world as the ‘Heritage Pan Masala’. The brand has a strong foothold amongst consumers with products such as Pan Bahar, Begum, Dilruba, Wah and Natkhat.

The company recently ventured in the ultra-premium segment with the launch of ‘Pan Bahar Crystal’, the world’s most expensive Pan Masala. The defining taste of this product is induced by the handpicked Supari (Beetelnut) from Shimoga, rarest attars (essence) from Kannauj and Orrisa, exquisitely filtered Catechu-an extract of Acacia, Kochi’s aromatic Cardamom and Mysore’s famed Sandalwood oil, infused with 100% edible gold and silver leaves.

PAN.jpgThe launch of Pan Bahar Crystal gave the company a great opportunity to reposition their flagship brand. Thus, a multi-media campaign with the new positioning ‘Pehchan Kaamyabi Ki’ (Identity of Success) was launched with none other than Saif Ali Khan as the brand ambassador.

“Saif Ali Khan thinks I can direct a film” : Dinesh Vijan

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , , , , on February 20, 2015 by saifalikhanonline

One of the youngest producers in the film industry, Dinesh Vijan has been making movies for the past 10 years. It all started with 2005’s Being Cyrus, when he collaborated with Saif Ali Khan and co-founded Illuminati Films with the actor.

This Friday, Vijan will be releasing his gritty revenge drama, Badlapur, starring Varun Dhawan and Yami Gautam (in the picture).

Vijan talks about the film, and why it will be a hit.

After Finding Fanny, your next film is Badlapur. Why choose such a dark film?

My first film was Being Cyrus which was as off as this film.

Finding Fanny may seem calmer on the surface but it was a riskier film than Badlapur.

You learn as much from your victories as from your failures.

What works for me is when I have invested in a story, when I really like a story and I feel I have to tell the story, I am motivated to work hard for it.

This is a true story from Europe but such things happen here too.

What if a normal person, who is leading a simple content life with a wife and child, suddenly loses everything in an incident? What will he do? There is no purpose in living left and he can’t even kill himself.

As a normal person, he won’t think of revenge. But what if he doesn’t get justice and after 15 years, he gets the chance to take revenge and he is a completely changed man. What level will he go to?

Sriram Raghavan (the film’s director) has imagined scenes that I cannot even think of.

He tells you clearly what is right and wrong at the beginning of the film. But in the end, you have to think what is right and what is not. There is a message in the film but it’s not in-your-face.
