Bollywood’s chotte nawab Saif Ali Khan was in the news recently, after the pictures of him holidaying in Tuscany with wife Kareena Kapoor Khan and son Taimur, went viral. The actor, who has now made his television debut as a narrator on the show ‘Kahan Hum Kahan Tum’, tells BT that spending time with family is a luxury for actors.

He says, “When I come home after work and find Taimur sleeping, I feel bad. We shoot long hours, but if I haven’t packed up even after 8 pm, I feel uncomfortable because it means taking away time from my son. In my growing-up years, my parents taught me about the importance of respecting family space. My father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) was a cricketer and mother (Sharmila Tagore) is an actress, and they both had hectic schedules. However, we learnt that it is important to talk about other things, too, at home and that’s how life becomes beautiful.”

On the occasion of World Environment Day, June 5, we spoke with Soha Ali Khan as she shared interesting memories behind the love for greens and her family. The actress and author says that when she was young, she and brother Saif Ali Khan would do plantations. “As kids we had planted mango and jamun saplings at our home in Delhi,” says Soha as she arrived to plant a sapling in Mumbai on the occasion, in the name of her daughter Inaya.

Interestingly, just like the brother-sister duo, their mother, former actress Sharmila Tagore too is fond of tress. Talking about her habits, Soha says, “My mom enjoys gardening. At our home in Delhi, we have a garden in the front and even in the back. There is also a patch where she plants and grows vegetables. It is quite cool to have fresh veggies plucked straight from the plants, tossed in a wok and served on a plate.” On this note, Soha also remembered how her daughter Inaya nurtured a tomato plant. “Well at her school there was a project where the kids were asked to plant the seeds and grow tomato saplings. Inaya had sowed the seeds in a small pot and she is happy seeing the plant grow,” shared Soha.

The Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan introduced StarPlus’ latest Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum through an unconventional promo. Saif Ali Khan could easily relate to this storyline because his parents share a similar story. Mansoor Ali Khan, Saif’s father was an Indian cricketer and also the former captain of the Indian team. Whereas Saif’s mother, Sharmila Tagore was a phenomenal actress through the 60s till the 90s.

Two people with such polar opposite professions who had super hectic schedules didn’t let the spark in their love die because they balanced their lives. Both of them gained immense love and respect in their respective fields and were bound by the thread of love.

Saif Ali Khan on being asked about his parents shared, “At a very early age, I have learnt to respect the various differences that come in the way of a relationship. This is because my parents had disparate professional lives – my father was a cricketer and my mother a renowned actress. Despite their hectic schedules, they balanced their personal life and didn’t let work act as a hurdle.

1/15 Story of how Saif Ali Khan prepared for his role in ‘Go Goa Gone’ will leave you puzzled

Raj and DK’s ‘Go Goa Gone’ remains one of the first and only zombie movies Bollywood has ever had. While the fans await the makers to come up with the second instalment of the film, we got hold of a small detail pertaining to the first part.

According to reports, for Saif, who played the role of Boris, it was a task to get into the skin of his character who sported a golden hair and faked a Russian accent. The makers, it is said, came up with an idea to help Saif go ahead with his character. They got him ‘The Zombie Survival Guide’ by Max Brooks which apparently has a hilarious take on a zombie invasion. Needless to say, Saif pulled off his character with ease.

The makers are reportedly now returning with the sequel to the film. The shooting for the film will start in January, next year.

Sharmila Tagore talks about Saif Ali Khan’s kids

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , on November 30, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

If you had any doubts about Saif and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara’s potential as a star, then all you had to do was see the alacrity with which she controlled herself when handed a ‘Taimur’ doll on the reality show India’s Got talent, earlier this week. Sara had gone on the show with her co-star Sushant Singh Rajput to promote her film Kedarnath. Speaking about her baby brother or being gifted his doll was never on the agenda.

Says a source very close to Sara, “She was as startled by the emergence of the doll as anyone else. The family is still trying to come to terms with Taimur’s overwhelming popularity. Saif was summoned by his mom (the legendary actress Sharmila Tagore) to discuss the issue. Normally, Sharmilaji is the most non-interfering mother you will find. But now with two-year-old Taimur being constantly in the limelight, she feels some measures must be taken to provide the child a normal life.”

Saif himself remains unfazed by the unreasonable attention his little son commands. When asked about it, Saif said, “I can’t be bothered and I don’t think it really matters. I am sure it will pass.”
