Early on Tuesday, Saif Ali Khan who’s been in the eye of a storm since his return from New York, flew off to Switzerland with wife Kareena Kapoor. The couple were accompanied by their son, Taimur. It’s his first trip abroad and since the baby is only seven months old, the nawab and the begum have opted not to stay in a chalet this time in Gstaad, but have booked a suite in the Royal Gstaad Palace for their two-week stay.

A year before they tied the knot on October 16, 2012, Kareena and Saif had taken their first international holiday in the Swiss Alps and mesmerised by the beauty and tranquillity of the snowcapped town, as also its people and local cuisine, the actress had made her beau promise that he would bring her back there every year, for the rest of their lives. It’s a promise Saif has been keeping since the last five years.

Vikram Chandra talks about Netflix’s Sacred Games (starring Saif Ali Khan)

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , on July 24, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

It is indeed a very happy birthday for novelist Vikram Chandra, who turns 56 today. Netflix has announced only a week ago that Saif Ali Khan will play the lead in its original series based on Chandra’s award-winning Sacred Games.

When I met Vikram Chandra earlier this year, he had expressed full faith in the team behind the screen adaptation of his novel. A critically-acclaimed epic delving into Mumbai’s underworld, Sacred Games seems a propitious pick for Netflix.

Chandra spoke fondly of his bestseller. “Sacred Games was about crime. It was based on the SOP of police and went beyond a regular whodunit,” he said.

Saif Ali Khan will be having his own Netflix Original series, titled Sacred Games, which is going to be produced in partnership with Phantom Films.

In an official statement, Saif, who will be playing the role of Sartaj Singh, an eminent character in the series which is an adaptation of Vikram Chandra’s novel of the same name, said “Content in the digital space is taking over the existing dynamics at a rapid pace — the crown in the digital empire lies with Netflix, and it’s extremely satisfying to partner and participate in the first original series from India to be showcased on Netflix,”

“It’s not something that I wrote or something I believe in” Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , on July 22, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

To whomsoever it may concern,

Over the last few days, a lot has been said and written about the skit on the IIFA stage by Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan and yours truly. Let’s first see what happened here. “Nepotism Rocks” was a joke on stage. It’s not something that I wrote or something I believe in. It was a joke on ourselves, between Varun (Dhawan), Karan (Johar) and me. It was not supposed to be a big deal, but I realised at some point, that it might have offended Kangana (Ranaut). I called her and apologised personally. That should be the end of it. Everybody needs to take a chill pill and back off.

However, in today’s world, apologies are made through Twitter or though some other social media platform. That, is basically apologising to your fans and the world in general, instead of apologising to the person concerned, because you don’t want to lose support. These are the times we live in. We wish each other happy birthday or offer condolences on social media. This is another reason I don’t want to be on any social media platform — it feels fake. As far as the issue of saying something stupid on stage goes, I’m sure it’s not the first or the last time I’m going to say something stupid in an attempt to be funny. And I apologised to Kangana, so I don’t owe anybody else an explanation. The issue is over.

Saif Ali Khan says Kaalakaandi beautifully shows the soul of Mumbai

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

Saif Ali Khan is having the best phase of his life with great films and now a web series, Sacred Games, in his kitty as well as enjoying his time off with his son Taimur Ali Khan. Saif is also gearing up for his upcoming film Kaalakaandi directed by Akshat Verma.

The actor has a lot of films that he’s working on including, Chef, Bazaar and Kaalakaandi. Saif spoke on working on these projects saying, “Kaalakaandi and some of the other stuff I’ve done like Chef and Baazaar, probably ignited in me this desire to hone my craft better and work at it harder. Working with a fantastic breed of actors and actresses who are so free, unfazed and natural only inspires you to do better.”

Saif even spilled some interesting details about Kaalakaandi. He shared, “I was thinking about how to approach this role in Kaalakaandi, make it believable and not fall into the trap of playing to the gallery. So, I bought a lot of books to read on acting and techniques etc. A lot of it is academic and homework, but that’s what preparation is all about.”
