The Nawab of Pataudi Saif Ali Khan is celebrating his 49th birthday today. In a career span of over two-and-a-half decades, the handsome hunk has not only evolved as an actor but also as a bankable star. We still remember his crazy dance moves from the song Ole Ole and his amazing camaraderie with Akshay Kumar in films like Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Main Chor Tu Sipaahi, Tashan and Keemat. On his birthday, let’s check out his memorable movies.
While the actor is recently going for his next, Jawani Janeman, in London, we are certain that his actress wife Kareena Kapoor, and the group of his film will unquestionably make this birthday memorable. Also joining the celebrations will be his son, Taimur.
The youngest of his three children, Taimur is the apple of his father’s eye (and also the entire country’s). Saif and Kareena love to idolize him and frequently get clicked snuggling with him either in India or even in London.
Not simply Taimur, Saif is pleased with his other two children also. Sara Ali Khan and her brother Ibrahim Ali Khan are Saif’s children from his first marriage with Bollywood actor Amrita Singh. While Sara has just pursued her father’s footsteps into Bollywood, even Ibrahim has comparable plans.
Saif recently said in a meeting that all children will probably join the film industry. Discussing Ibrahim, he stated, “He should, he’s looking good, better looking than I am! He’s a very charming guy. I definitely think all of my children would be interested in acting. We’re an acting family, the whole bunch of us are in the industry. So I’m sure. He’s still a little young, and I’m keener than he does university first. Then, of course, we’ll support him in whatever he wants to do.”
As for Sara, she will soon be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2, which is a sequel of 2009’s Love Aaj Kal. The original starred Saif in the lead role. When asked if Sara is taking the franchise forward after him, he said,“I don’t think of it as Sara taking the franchise forward. That’s an interesting thought, which I hadn’t thought before. I think if anything, it’s Imtiaz’s franchise and his legacy that perhaps he is taking forward, I was just a part of it.”
During their joint appearance on Koffee With Karan last year, Sara said that her father never let things get uncomfortable between her and stepmom, Kareena. “Everyone has been clear about their dynamics with me. It has never been confusing. Kareena herself says that ‘look you have a mother and a great one and what I want is for us to be able to be friends.’ My father also never said ‘this is your second mother’ or made it any way uncomfortable,” she said.
