Archive for Ibrahim Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan can say what he likes about his kids not showing much inclination towards a career in the movies, but it does seem like his son Ibrahim could grow up to be quite the charmer. The teenager’s Instagram feed is packed with dubsmash videos that he’s recorded (many with his friend Nirvaan Khan, son of actor-producer Sohail Khan) lip-synching to popular Shah Rukh Khan songs. The title track of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi appears to be especially popular with the boys, who’ve filmed multiple versions of themselves enacting it.
Ibrahim—whose friend circle comprises other second- generation film kids like Nirvaan, Khushi Kapoor (daughter of Sridevi and Boney Kapoor), Aaliyah Kashyap (daughter of Anurag Kashyap) and Arhaan Khan (son of Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora)—is a spitting image of his dad, many would agree. Ibrahim’s sister Sara, on the other hand, evidently owes her features to her mum Amrita Singh.
As a kid, Ibrahim was the perfect companion to take along to previews of his films, Saif has often said. “He likes every movie. That can be quite encouraging when you’re watching an unreleased film of yours. Although I realised with time, that his enthusiasm over my films wasn’t often matched by the audience’s.”
Saif Ali Khan does not need to dress up for interviews. He can just walk into his office wearing what he was at home—bright orange shorts and a tee—and look like a million dollars. Not to mention the chivalrous charm and aristocracy that he bowls over women with.
He, however, wants to give an explanation here. “When we say aristocratic, it means being polite and kind to people,” he says. “Because sometimes it does mean oppressing the poor and I don’t want to be known for that. But when you say aristocratic I can only think about my father. I am a mix of that and an artist. And my traits do oscillate from good to very good to good. I do get angry on a bad day. And then I feel ungrateful and unsatisfied, so I go to the gym and my chemical imbalance gets settled! Diet, sleep and exercise are important for a balanced life. Your brain should work properly. If you are not healthy in your lifestyle, then that affects your lifestyle.”
Though Khan hates to admit it, a lot depends on his new movie, Phantom, starring Katrina Kaif and directed by Kabir Khan. His last two releases, Happy Ending and Bullet Raja, were not big grossers at the box office. “The story, script and working with Katrina Kaif again were the factors that I was looking for,” he says.
Actor Saif Ali Khan said he is in no hurry to have children with actress-wife Kareena Kapoor Khan.
“I am in no rush to become father… whenever she is ready (for it),” Saif said in an interview.
Kareena had recently said in an interview that she wants to become a mother but not in next two to three years.
Saif has two children — Sara and Ibrahim — from his former wife actress Amrita Singh.
Kareena, who married Saif in October 2012, is having a good run at the box office with the success of her latest release Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
The Phantom actor said Kareena has managed to strike a fine balance between the blockbusters and small-budget films with meaty roles.
Refuting rumours of a biopic being made on his late father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan states son Ibrahim is more suited to play the role of the cricketer than him.
Films made on eminent sports personalities like Mary Kom, MS Dhoni and Mohammed Azharuddin are catching on these days. These films not only give the world a glimpse of their work and career, but also celebrate their life on a larger scale. Thinking on those terms, a name that instantly pops in our head is of none other than the late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.
Saif Ali Khan had once expressed his desire of making a biopic on his late father, but he says it would be very difficult to do that. “Writing a biography is one thing and making a movie on it, is a different thing. There is a lot of material out there. Even after he died, a lot of articles were written on him. But that’s not all. There are lot of things that people don’t know about him,” said Saif.
Over the years, Bollywood actors have earned themselves the tag of becoming quite possessive fathers to their daughters. With actors such as Rishi Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt allegedly not approving of their respective daughters entering the film industry, it comes as a pleasant surprise to hear Saif Ali Khan claim that he is not “ridiculously” possessive when it comes to his daughter Sara.
In an interview, Saif said, “I am a protective father but not ridiculously so. Some actors say they are possessive about their daughters. I am not crazily possessive about Sara… I like her boyfriend… She’ll have a great university degree by next year… She’s interested in acting. I believe it’s a great profession. It’s a great world.”
While he claims not to be overly possessive and fully supports his daughter if she steps into B-town, the actor did go on to admit that he would “wish more security for Sara” as compared to the unpredictability of a career in Bollywood.
It can be noted that there have recently been rumours of Sara making her debut in a film produced by Karan Johar, in which she may be paired opposite Shahid Kapoor’s brother, Ishaan Khattar.

Saif Ali Khan’s son Ibrahim is a fun guy, daughter Sara has grown up to be an intelligent girl: Kunal KemmuPosted in General with tags Ibrahim Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Saif, Saif Ali Khan, Sara Ali Khan, Soha Ali Khan on September 10, 2015 by saifalikhanonline
Actor Kunal Kemmu absolutely dotes on Saif Ali Khan’s son, Ibrahim Ali Khan. The duo get along well whenever they meet and if Kunal is to be believed both get along like a house on fire.
“Ibrahim is a fun guy to be with. I have seen him grow in front of my eyes. He and Sara used to come on the sets of ‘Kalyug’ to meet Amritaji (Saif’s ex wife). Sara has grown into a beautiful and intelligent girl while Ibrahim is younger and a total fun guy to be with,” said Kunal Kemmu, who is married to Saif’s younger sister Soha Ali Khan.
Recollecting his recent vacation with the Pataudi family, Kunal said: “We vacationed in Maldives recently where me and Ibrahim went diving and bonded a lot. We don’t meet up a lot but we do keep in touch and chat whenever possible. He is a fun guy and I love him.”
On the career front, Kunal is excited about his next release ‘Bhaag Johnny Bhaag.’ “There is some pressure considering that it is a solo release but I am excited too at the same time because we have strong riveting plot which I am sure audience will love,” said Kunal.
