While there is a conjecture that Saif Ali Khan’s son Ibrahim Khan could well follow his grandmother Sharmila Tagore, mother Amrita Singh, father Saif, aunt Soha and sister Sara into Bollywood, it seems that the lad is working hard to get into cricket.

“Cricket is not just a hobby for Ibrahim. He is passionately following it. Saif and Amrita have both given him the go ahead to try for a while and see if he has it in him to make it at the highest level. Ibrahim’s grandfather Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi was also the captain of the Indian cricket team in 40 out of the 46 test matches that he played and Ibrahim is majorly inspired by him. He will give cricket a shot first. God forbid if he doesn’t do well, he can always fall back on films because he is also blessed with his parents’ genes,” says a source.

Ibrahim has been practicing cricket regularly and has had his father also have a look at his sporting endeavours.

Bollywood’s chotte nawab Saif Ali Khan was in the news recently, after the pictures of him holidaying in Tuscany with wife Kareena Kapoor Khan and son Taimur, went viral. The actor, who has now made his television debut as a narrator on the show ‘Kahan Hum Kahan Tum’, tells BT that spending time with family is a luxury for actors.

He says, “When I come home after work and find Taimur sleeping, I feel bad. We shoot long hours, but if I haven’t packed up even after 8 pm, I feel uncomfortable because it means taking away time from my son. In my growing-up years, my parents taught me about the importance of respecting family space. My father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) was a cricketer and mother (Sharmila Tagore) is an actress, and they both had hectic schedules. However, we learnt that it is important to talk about other things, too, at home and that’s how life becomes beautiful.”

Sharmila Tagore talks about Saif Ali Khan’s son Taimur

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , on May 19, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

At a recent event organised in the city, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore was at her candid best. Although the event was titled Motherhood and work-life balance, the ‘Chupke Chupke’, ‘Amar Prem’, ‘Mausam’ and ‘Aradhana’ actress spoke on a variety of subjects including the positive changes in Bollywood since when she was an active part of the industry, her marriage to Tiger Pataudi and her grandson Taimur.

The doting and protective grandmother in Sharmila Tagore came to the fore when one among the audience gushed about her grandson, one-and-a-half-year old Taimur Ali Khan and how everyone found him to be one of the cutest kids. Flashing her dimpled smile, Sharmila said, “He’s very sweet. He’s talking now but not in sentences, yet. He does say Abba and Amma sometimes, but not that clearly. It’s more of mumbling right now. Taimur is like any other child playing his usual things. He likes his car and his toys and he likes books.” But the veteran actress also made it clear, in the same breath, how she disapproved of the attention showered over the kid by people and on social media. “I don’t approve of this social media attention and what they (people) are doing to Taimur. People are really stalking him! They are in front of his school, the play school that he goes too, following him when he’s going with his parents and it’s not really a good thing. Because, at the moment he’s young but he’s still understanding cameras and stuff. So one can’t really not go out, to avoid this attention. There should be some kind of request to the people to lay off Taimur. Or maybe another baby will arrive someday and they will get bored of this one,” she said.
