Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , on November 1, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Karisma Kapoor had recently said that her nephew Taimur Ali Khan’s first birthday party will be a family affair.

“Wrong!” says a close family friend of the Pataudis. “I don’t know why she would say this. Taimur’s birthday is more than a month away. There is certainly no talk of making it a just a family get-together. Saif and Kareena are planning a huge first birthday bash for their little one. Saif’s mom (Sharmila Tagore) is expected to fly in from Delhi for the big day and the big party.”

And why not? The first birthday is always special for parents and grandparents. Says the family friend, “Saif and Kareena are very excited about Taimur’s first birthday. They intend to invite all their friends from the film industry and outside. Taimur is too young to understand what his first birthday will be like. But he does love candles, cakes and balloons.”

Mirza claims his grandmother Rabia Sultan, who lived and died in Bhopal, was the Nawab’s youngest daughter and by that lineage, he is the rightful heir to the property as per law.

Saif Ali Khan gets candid

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

The nawab of Bollywood wears the tag rather easy, as he talks about his film career, his father, managing his family, and more.

Saif Ali Khan is an anomaly. Even as his name is taken in the same breath as all the other Khans of the industry, he isn’t counted in the list of superstars, despite a decent run in showbiz. But that hasn’t deterred Saif. Currently promoting his upcoming release, Chef, the actor talks to us about his career, daughter Sara’s debut and more. Excerpts:

How do you handle the nawab tag?
I definitely had a privileged upbringing, but as far as money goes, my parents never gave me any pocket money… at least not more than the guy next door. I had a normal upbringing, and there are no nawabs; it’s a tag in movies. My father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) was the last nawab. And even he didn’t think of himself as one. The image isn’t because I’m a nawab, but because I enjoy the lifestyle of a movie star. Sometimes you can’t beat your image, and it’s okay. It’s fine. If the image was true, it would be nothing to me.

Saif Ali Khan: “Don’t Call me a Nawab, I Would Rather be Known By My Name”

You know him as an actor, a husband and a father. But what was his own relationship with his great dad Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi? Saif Ali Khan reveals some intimate details

Saif Ali Khan is at an interesting crossroad in his life. As an actor, he is going from strength to strength, bringing variety and versatility to his repertoire. Forget the box office performance of Rangoon, it can’t be denied that the Vishal Bhardwaj film saw him at his complex best on screen. At the same time, he is balancing serious with the light and frothy fare like the forthcoming Race 3 and Chef. On the personal side, it’s his children who are in the limelight now – be it baby Taimur whose every move is documented or his daughter Sara Ali Khan who will be making her Bollywood debut soon and is already a social media sensation. His relationship with his children is somehow influenced by another big bond in his life – the one that he shared with his late dad Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. While the media is still obsessed with his marriage to Kareena Kapoor and his new fatherhood status, we get the Nawab to talk about his own father and how he was impacted by him. And by the way, Saif doesn’t like to be called Nawab – find out why.

Sharmila Tagore feels pairing her with Saif Ali Khan or Soha in a movie may seem gimmicky

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , on June 22, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

We haven’t been offered a film together, says the veteran actress…

Sharmila Tagore likes her privacy. The actress, who spends most of her time in Delhi and her ancestral home in Pataudi, is happy to spend her time with her friends and family in the real world rather than virtual. Here, the actress talks about her lack of technical knowledge, working with Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan and the kind of roles she would like to do…

Why don’t we see you in films anymore?

It’s not that I don’t like working in films. I do, and to act in a film, right from start camera to cut is beautiful. The kind of films Ratna Pathak Shah is doing are really nice. I thought she was brilliant in Kapoor & Sons, so there is some kind of recognition for elderly roles today. But the truth is, I have got lots of interesting stuff also going on and I keep myself engaged in that. It doesn’t mean that if I don’t work in films, I have nothing to offer. I am happy and contented so only if there’s a very good role, will I take it up. I have done it all and have a lot of experience, so I am not that interested to be involved. There’s a whole world out there to experience besides films.
