‘What if he is not interested?’- Saif Ali Khan expresses his concern over son Taimur Ali Khan entering Bollywood

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , on May 15, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan’s and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s adorable little munchkin Taimur Ali Khan is a star in his own right. The little kiddo can give any star a run-for-his-money with his popularity. In fact, the paparazzi have permanently stationed themselves outside his residence to catch a glimpse of the toddler as he goes about his daily life. Taimur’s popularity is such that there is a doll after him and recently Kareena joked about Taimur entering Bollywood and stated that his entry will send Khiladi Kumar’s popularity for a toss.

So, when Saif appeared on Arbaaz Khan’s chat show Pinch and came across a comment on Twitter about Taimur’s Bollywood debut he could not hold back his amusement but still gave an answer like a concerned father. He said, “Everyone I speak to, everybody around thinks that all the kids want to join films and they do. Most of our kids want to do that which is a good thing, a great thing but I don’t know why I am a little concerned about that. I feel there should be other choices…somebody might want to say I want to become a doctor or a lawyer kind of stuff. Maybe I am sounding very old-fashioned but anyway, I am not interested in making his debut in Bollywood and neither is he.”

Posted in Movies with tags , , , on April 30, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

Undergoing body transformation is one of the key aspects of getting into a role for any actor. Saif Ali Khan built muscles for his look in Taanaji but now he has to shed off all that for Jawaani Jaaneman. He will start work for the film from mid-June in London. It is a 45 days schedule. Known to get under the skin of his characters, Saif Ali Khan underwent intense prep for his role in Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior, which included bulking up and working on a muscular frame for the ambitious period drama. He took lessons in sword fighting and horse riding for hours for the challenging action sequences. Saif Ali Khan will now shed weight to sport a leaner frame for his upcoming next, Jawaani Jaaneman, under his home banner Black Knight Films.

A source informed, “After wrapping up the schedule for Taanaji, Saif is going on a special diet to get leaner. He will train for two hours a day to shed muscle for his role in Jawaani Jaaneman. He starts shooting for the film in London this mid June through a tight 45 day schedule. Given that there’s little time on hand, he will be putting in the extra hours to work on his physique as he steps into the shoes of a middle age man who confronts the harsh reality of his life in the coming of age film.”

Sacred Games will release in August and Navdeep Singh’s next by end of this year. Taanaji will release in early 2020. He also has Jawaani Jaaneman and Shoot Tantrik in his kitty.

Last year, Saif made his web debut with Sacred Games. Now that you have ventured into the digital arena, do your conversations with him revolve a lot around work?

We rarely talk about work. We get along really well. He is so well-read and has diverse and vivid interests. It’s a learning experience to sit and talk with him about painting, cavalry charges, watches, travel or fitness. Both of us love to travel and we have visited a lot of places together.

Asking people to exercise their right to vote in the general elections, actor Saif Ali Khan on Tuesday said every leader must be aware of the country’s “power of unity”.

Every vote counts, Khan said at a panel discussion.
“Not voting shouldn’t be an option. You can really affect change. I think one of the things that any government or any leader should fear and be really aware of is the power of unity in this country.

“We get together, have this union and decide and discuss to vote, suddenly we will become important to these guys and they’ll fear you. So use that and look after your country,” the 48-year-old said.

The “Sacred Games” star said voting in the country is a “unifying” process.

Did Fox Star Studios approach Saif Ali Khan for a horror comedy?

Posted in Movies with tags , , on December 17, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

Bollywood’s Nawab Saif Ali Khan‘s career got a second inning ever since he worked for ‘Sacred Games’. The web series was a game turner for the actor and he soon bagged some lucrative projects. There have been reports that Pawan Kripalani of Ragini MMS fame was directing ‘Tantrik’, a horror comedy for Fox Star Studios and was planning to take the project on floor by early 2019 with Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.

However as per a recent report, apparently, the studio has approached Saif Ali Khan to star in the horror comedy. The reason being, Abhishek after the success of ‘Manmarziyaan’ has hiked his fees. The studio decided to move to another actor as they felt the demand was too high.

The report further added, Saif agreed to do the film with a said number but there was a catch. The studio reportedly asked him to do a cameo in Sushant Singh Rajput starrer ‘Kizie Aur Manny’. But the shoot of the movie came to standstill when Mukesh Chhabra was suspended from his work due to the ongoing #MeToo movement. When the matter was resolved Saif had already started shooting for ‘Sacred Games 2’. Though he asked them to revise the dates, the studio turned him away and once again approached Abhishek Bachchan.

Saif who was not informed about the changes was quite miffed with the studio and even told them that it was very unprofessional of them to have conversations with another actor behind his back. The studio made some excuses for their stand and Pawan Kripalani, who was patiently waiting for an update, decided to step back from the project.

Indian market is growing rapidly’: Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan is one actor who speaks openly about most issues. We recently met him for an event and the actor spoke about how the Indian market will soon be growing by many thousand crores. He also expressed his reservations regarding actors personally promoting their own films.

“The promotional strategies formed require us to go ahead on different platforms and say, ‘My film is good. Please come and watch.’ Why would people trust us? Audiences are not stupid to agree with us, while we are blowing our own trumpets. Interactions with media persons are different.”

The actor adds, “Having said that, I do agree that certain platforms are good enough to raise awareness though. In the earlier days, by just looking at the trailer people would decide whether they wanted to watch the film or not. People can’t rely on the actors. So sometimes, I do feel it’s just a waste of time.”

Talking about the recent distribution of Indian films in China, the actor feels good cinema is one thing that is liked by every country and its people. “No one would like to watch regressive cinema. We all need to feel happy, as the Indian market has become huge. There are new territories opening up, and people worldwide have started liking our films. Those days are not far when our films will fetch multi-crores from these newly opened territories too. It’s time for us to better our distribution worldwide,” he says.
