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.
