Saif Ali Khan loves his “normal” life and wants the kind of roles his mother played

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

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.

Saif Ali Khan: We’re in no rush to have kids

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on September 15, 2015 by saifalikhanonline

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.

“Ibrahim may play the role of his grandfather” : Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on September 14, 2015 by saifalikhanonline

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.

Saif Ali Khan is not a “ridiculously” possessive father

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , on September 11, 2015 by saifalikhanonline

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 Kemmu

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.

Saif Ali Khan explains why he is pinning his hopes on phantom

Saif Ali Khan hasn’t had a good run at the box office with Bullett Raja, Humshakals and Happy Ending crashing. Now, all eye are on Phantom, a thriller helmed by Kabir Bajrangi Bhaijaan Khan. The film, which also stars Katrina Kaif, is a fictional plot to bring the mastermind of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai to justice. Saif plays Daniyal Khan, a discredited army officer on a suicide mission.

On a long phone call, the 45-year-old chatted about working with Kabir, why he is not in a hurry to sign films and son Ibrahim’s recent media moment.

Belated happy birthday (August 16)! The celebrations were fairly low-key this year…

(Laughs) Yes. Thank you. I am 45… and I feel so good. I’ve said this to you before… 45 is a great age. Everything seems to be just right.

Saif Ali Khan in a candid chat about his career and his children

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , , , on August 30, 2015 by saifalikhanonline

It’s an important film for Saif Ali Khan’s career, which of late has been bogged down by flops. Filmmaker Kabir Khan’s Phantom, co-starring Katrina Kaif, who is considered a kind of guarantee for success, is a crucial film for the current Nawab of Pataudi, who completes 22 years in his career as an actor.

In a gung-ho mood (you’ve got to hand it to the guy — he thinks 22 years younger too!), Saif gets in candid mode, even about dissecting his chequered career and the recent spate of flops.

We meet a day after a press conference in which Saif had openly expressed his views on Pakistan’s objections to the release of Phantom, saying, “I am happy to be a part of this patriotic film made by Indian Muslims — producer Sajid Nadiadwala, director Kabir Khan, Katrina Kaif and me, besides writer Hussain Zaidi, on whose book it is based. This story is realistic and such films, which are fiction based on fact, must be made. Why should we be expected to focus only on foreign subjects or fictitious action subjects? We all know the reality that there are many enemies of the Indian state in Pakistan, even as we continue to share interests in sports and cultural events, right? Or, am I the only person who knows that?”
