Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan is all set to make her big screen debut soon. The 21-year-old has been roped in by Dharma Productions for her debut film. However, buzz has it that dad Saif isn’t too pleased with this decision as he doesn’t want Sara to become another Alia Bhatt.

However, the 46-year-old has rubbished these rumours and has said he would be really happy Sara is able to become as successful as Alia. In fact, he adds that he has no qualms in Karan Johar launching her daughter.

Saif issued an official statement which read, “I would love Sara to be launched by Karan Johar. He is one of the best that we have. I keep reading various reports where I am supposedly averse to her getting launched by Karan because she will apparently become another Alia Bhatt. I would just like to say that if Sara becomes as successful as Alia is then it will be a matter of pride and happiness for all of us.”

Moreover, Sara was recently spotted with mentor Karan at Shahid Kapoor’s pre-birthday bash. The star kids posed happily for the paparazzi with Karan.

Sara will soon begin prepping up for her big film, however, the details have been kept under the wraps.

Saif Ali Khan dotes on daughter Sarah Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan is a doting father. Recently in an interview with a leading daily, he spoke lovingly about Sarah. “I am like her friend, philosopher and guide. I don’t want to control her, because it is not like one of those old-school star kids launches where she has to talk to me or her mom to decide what she wants. I am content functioning in an advisory capacity. My advice to her is to mainly focus on the art and figure out what kind of an actor she is, rather than getting distracted by other thoughts and politics. Sarah will also get great advice from her mom Amrita Singh, who gave me some great advice when I entered the industry. I think Sarah will be a good actor as she is very passionate about it.”

Saif Ali Khan is back with Rangoon

Of late, Saif Ali Khan has been in the news more for the confidence with which his wife lived out her pregnancy, and for the controversy surrounding their choice of name for their newborn son. But Khan is hoping that the only thing people will soon be talking about is his performance as a Parsi movie producer in Vishal Bhardwaj’s February 24 release, Rangoon.

He’s been acting for 23 years, weathering many a storm along the way — both professionally and personally — but he’s managed to take the highs with the lows and at 46, found calmness within. Memorable movies like Dil Chahta Hai, Being Cyrus, Love Aaj Kal and Kal Ho Naa Ho are just some that have earned Khan his fan following although some of them must have been surprised at his National Award for best actor for Hum Tum (in 2005).

Inspired by the fit and furiously busy senior actors, Saif has decided to give film production a break and concentrate on acting, paying particular attention to the choice of roles and directors he works with. He shares these thoughts while seated in his office, looking relaxed in a white kurta-pyjama, sipping a cup of coffee.

He’s thoughtful about every question asked and, unlike his more effervescent wife Kareena Kapoor Khan, more politically correct. Echoes of his boarding school and British education are still evident in his clipped accent as he speaks about the influence of cinema in his life, his future plans and, of course, Rangoon.

Education Is A Good Back-Up For Actors: Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan who has come out in support of his kids who want to join the entertainment industry provided they are educated too. Seems like, the future of the B-Town is in the hands of both talented and well-read actors.

In an interview, Saif opened up about her daughter’s debut in Bollywood as there are reports everywhere that the star kid might be paired opposite Hrithik Roshan for Dharma Productions untitled next. He said, “Who’s to blame, it’s in her genes. Cinema has changed since and she’s also realised there’s a lot of angst in the profession, especially if you have not quite arrived yet. I worry about that, but what can I do? If she discusses her profession with me, she will get an opinion, but the decision is hers to make. Karan is good with newcomers and according to me, he is the perfect person for her”.

He also said that his elder son, Ibrahim, also wants to become an actor. He added, “Yes, both my kids want to work in films, it’s one of the best jobs in India. I just don’t want them to be disappointed which is why education is a good back-up”.

Saif Ali Khan recently became a father of a son, Taimur Ali Khan, with second wife Kareena Kapoor Khan.

“Taimur is an ancient Persian name meaning iron” : Saif Ali Khan

New dad Saif Ali Khan may not quite be cleaning up baby poop but he’s certainly dealing with the scatalogical side of having an infant in his arms. “He scowls a lot, passes wind and yells so Kareena thinks he’s a lot like me—a cranky, farty yeller!” he says about Taimur, arguably the most famous baby in the country at the moment. The actor, no stranger to controversy—he was accused by the loony fringe of waging Love Jihad when he married Kareena Kapoor in 2012—speaks out for the first time since the controversy over Taimur’s name broke out in late December. And in doing so he strikes a cautiously optimistic note, warning against needless handwringing over right-wing fascists taking over the country’s culture.

“Social media just makes it clear what everybody is thinking in a sense. There is a lot of anonymity from the side of the people who are doing the talking so they feel free to say whatever they like, and sometimes they get very nasty…And that’s fine. It doesn’t mean that twenty, thirty or forty years ago people weren’t thinking similar things but maybe they did not have an outlet then.’ “As far as I am concerned, stars are privileged and our country is actually still very balanced,” he adds expressing gratitude for the support that he and Kareena have received in recent weeks.

“Being an actor is individuality” : Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , , on January 14, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

It has been almost 25 years since he started his career (with Parampara; 1992). And in all these years, Saif Ali Khan has witnessed a number of actors come and go. Probably, that’s why he has an interesting take on ‘competition’. “We are all different personalities, so rather than competing to be the same, we should compete with ourselves to be different from other people,” he says. Admitting that competition does exist, Saif feels one should be the “most interesting version of oneself, the fittest and best person that you can be on-screen.” “More than being competitors, others should remind you to work harder as they could be looking better or acting better than you, so it should push you [to do even better],” he says.
