He answered most questions in a jovial mood till he got miffed with one particular question toward the end of the session.

Actor Saif Ali Khan is known for his sense of humour, both on and off screen. When he came to promote his upcoming movie Kaalakaandi in the capital, he was his usual witty self. He answered most questions in a jovial mood till he got miffed with one particular question toward the end of the session.

Asked about how excited and nervous he was about the his wife Kareena’s ‘comeback’ film and his daughter Sara’s debut movie, the 47-year-old actor said, “You get anxious before any film. Sara has her whole life ahead of her. It feels like it is my debut film that’s up for a release. It’s her dream, and I hope all her dreams come true. Kareena is a great artiste, and I have seen how well she has concentrated on her health and fitness, and had you asked this question (on comeback) to her, she would have probably thrown something at you, like a shoe maybe. As according to her, she has always been around. But I guess the youngest gets the most attention.”

Saif Ali Khan on Sara Ali Khan: What worries me is how she will deal with failure

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , on November 4, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. Sara has already started shooting for the same and is paired opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.

When Saif was asked about Sara’s Bollywood debut, like any other father, the actor stated to a leading tabloid, “I am concerned for her, which is pretty normal for any father. But, I wouldn’t say I am nervous because I am not living vicariously through her.”

“What worries me is the kind of relationships she is going to have. Or for that matter, how she will deal with failure — will she get upset and cry about them? These are things that niggle at me,” Saif continued.

Regarding Sara being independent and making her own decisions at an early age, the actor said, “She simply came to me and told me that she is doing Kedarnath. We never discussed the script in detail, as I don’t think my opinion matters. Since it is her independent decision, she is happy to either fly with it or go down with it.”
Saif is also extremely happy for his daughter and added, “I’m happy Sara is doing something she is passionate about. The only thing I have told her is to stay true to her job as an artist. But Kareena [Kapoor Khan] pointed out that I started taking interest in my work only recently and found my way. I hope she too finds her way.”

In the wake of the tragic stampede on the foot overbridge of Mumbai’s Elphinstone station on Friday morning, which claimed 23 lives and left over 32 injured, Bollywood celebrities condemned the incident and condoled those who had lost their lives.

From Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra to Anupam Kher and Anil Kapoor, stars expressed their shock and sadness on social media, and even questioned the state of the infrastructure which led to the tragedy.

Echoing similar sentiments, actor Saif Ali Khan said, “It’s a terrible, terrible thing. Our thoughts and concerns to the people who are hurt, but you know the kind of population we have and the kind of infrastructure we have, burdens any society.”

In a hope to avoid a man-made tragedy like this, Saif added, “It’s a great thing we are aware of it, we are discussing it now. The fact that it doesn’t happen more often is a blessing to me because it’s threatening to happen all the time. So it should be addressed and hopefully before terrible things happen.”

The actor gets sentimental as he talks about his former successful phase as an actor, and says he took things for granted in the past.

Saif Ali Khan has acted in some great films in the past including Omkara, Love Aaj Kal, Hum Tum, and Dil Chahta Hai.

But if the actor is to be believed, he still doesn’t know what’s it like to be a superstar. He explains, “As far as there are some flashes of brilliance, it’s nice. I don’t know what it is like to be a superstar. I want to be like Aamir (Khan). I am more interested in choosing things well now.”

The actor, however, maintains that he has got his due in the industry. He says, “Sometimes I lose interest in my work, and sometimes I am very much interested. I put the blame on myself.”

The actor gets sentimental as he talks about his former successful phase as an actor, and says he took things for granted in the past. “When I was successful, I took it for granted. Having said that, I have gotten more than I have deserved. People have been kind and patient,” reflects the 47-year-old.

Currently promoting his film Chef, the actor believes that all is not lost. He says, “My success is a direct reflection of my choices. I have done quite well but I want to do better. I am open to doing age-appropriate stuff. I am 47, these guys are 50 (the Khans). So there is still time.”
