Saif Ali Khan steers away from ‘friends’

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , on August 29, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Saif has been perturbed by the box office failures too and understands that partying will not boost his films any way.

Saif Ali Khan has turned a recluse. Unlike his gregarious wife Kareena Kapoor Khan, Saif now wants to be around his work and not get into the Bollywood party scene anymore. His recent birthday party earlier this month saw him party with family and very close family friends only and there was no big party organised for alleged friends from Bollywood.

“Saif has realised that friends in Bollywood are only fair-weather ones, and their friendship actually does not mean anything except to party during happy times and not entertain you when the going gets tough. Saif’s films have not been doing well at all of late. He has understood that his so-called friends from Bollywood only want to work and hobnob with the successful. So, he has decided to stay away from the limelight,” says a source close to Saif.

Early on Tuesday, Saif Ali Khan who’s been in the eye of a storm since his return from New York, flew off to Switzerland with wife Kareena Kapoor. The couple were accompanied by their son, Taimur. It’s his first trip abroad and since the baby is only seven months old, the nawab and the begum have opted not to stay in a chalet this time in Gstaad, but have booked a suite in the Royal Gstaad Palace for their two-week stay.

A year before they tied the knot on October 16, 2012, Kareena and Saif had taken their first international holiday in the Swiss Alps and mesmerised by the beauty and tranquillity of the snowcapped town, as also its people and local cuisine, the actress had made her beau promise that he would bring her back there every year, for the rest of their lives. It’s a promise Saif has been keeping since the last five years.

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , on June 21, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Kabir Khan is all charged up to direct a web series, The Forgotten Army, which is about Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army. Kabir is keen on roping in Saif Ali Khan for the same. He says, “Saif is somebody I have been talking to, but nothing is confirmed right now. When things are meant to happen, they will happen.

Saif is one of the few well-read people in this industry who loves having intellectual conversations. My series is not about Netaji, but it’s about the soldiers who are a part of his army. If he does it, then he will be seen as a soldier,” Kabir signs off.

Sara is passionate about acting, says father Saif Ali Khan

Actor Saif Ali Khan is excited about daughter Sara’s movie debut and says the only advice he has given to her is to read a script properly. The 24-year-old star kid is set to make her debut in Bollywood with director Abhishek Kapoor’s “Kedarnath” opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. Asked what advice he would give to Sara, Saif said, “I would say read a script properly… that’s always good. I think Sara is a very bright girl… She is well educated and has got a nice mind.

“She has a lot of well wishers around her… from her mother (actress Amrita Singh) to me, Karan Johar to everybody. She can seek advice from anybody. I am very happy that she is doing something she is passionate about and it’s a beautiful job.” It was earlier reported the 46-year-old Bollywood star was concerned about her becoming an actress but Saif said his comments were twisted. “It’s annoying when you give a nice interview and people pick up one line and talk about it, it’s irritating.

I support my daughter and I love her. I think her choice is great. “Of course, she is an actress and she comes from a family of artistes. I am still a little concerned for her as it’s an unsure profession. I love her so I worry for her.” Saif was talking on the sidelines of the IIFA press conference here. Karan Johar, who was present at the event, said Saif’s concerns about his daughter are justified.

Saif Ali Khan has been juggling a hectic schedule these days. After shooting an entire day for Bazaar, the actor comes back and spends time reading scripts.

“We have spotted many directors including Vikramaditya Motwani and writer Varun Grover paying a visit to Saif at his house, where they sit together and discuss scripts with him. Currently, there lies a stack of scripts on Saif’s bedside table. He gives two to three hours each day to reading them,” says a source.

Apparently, the actor has also been lately engaging in a lot of brainstorming sessions with film-makers.

The source further adds, “Saif has always explored diverse genres with films such as Omkara (2006), Being Cyrus (2006) and Cocktail (2012). The actor has three projects in the pipeline — Hollywood remake of Chef (2014), Kalakandi and Bazaar. None of them are similar in anyway. And now he wants to explore myriad subjects. He wants to build an incredible line-up of good, content-driven films.”

Saif couldn’t be reached for a comment.

BMC to penalise Saif Ali Khan for illegal parking?

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , on June 10, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan‘s films ‘Bazaar’ and ‘Chef’ are all set to enthrall the audience. While his baby boy Taimur Ali Khan is making news for the cutest reasons, Saif was in the news flashes for a rather negative reasons.No, it is nothing related to his films but he is into the legal trouble due to illegal parking. Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is soon going to take action against the actor. According to the reports in a daily, it happened so that, Saif was shooting in St Xaviers campus in Parel. He had taken all the necessary permissions from the Mumbai Police but apparently did not take permissions from the BMC, under whose jurisdiction the property comes.

The reports also suggest that tents needed for the shooting and also Saif’s vanity van was on this ground without permission. Since all this was without permission, they were removed by BMC in no time. It can be noted that Saif was also given a warning before shifting all this but no one paid heed to the warning, if reports are to be believed. The BMC officials rushed to the spot and removed the tent and Saif’s vanity van also penalised him for illegal parking! Now, we wonder what Saif Ali Khan or the film makers have to say about this.

On the work front, the poster of the Saif Ali Khan starrer Bazaar has gained all right kind of attention. Talking about it he was quoted saying, “It’s a story about ambition, greed, betrayal, loss, and redemption. The movie is a suspense thriller set in the world of big deals and high finance.” There are also rumors that the film revolves around the Hollywood blockbuster, Leonardo Di Caprio starrer ‘The Wolf of Wallstreet’. Let us know see what this legal case turns into!

Now according to latest buzz Sajid has again offered a film to Saif. A source says, “Sajid has been working on a script for quite some time now. He has finished writing it and narrated it to Saif. But Saif was apparently not keen to be part of the project and has turned it down.”

It is said that Sajid is making an action film and Saif is said to have refused it without even suggesting changes or further discussion.

Saif has just finished working on his film Chef, and has started shooting for Baazaar with Nikhil Advani.
