Saif Ali Khan – The Movie Personality Who Has Matured With Age!
Saif Ali Khan was born on August 16, 1970 in New Delhi. If you look at the Saif Ali Khan family history, his parents are famous cine star and cricketer Sharmila Tagore and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, respectively. Saif has inherited the royal legacy of his father and forefathers with the title “Nawab of Pataudi”. Pataudi is a princely state in Gurgaon (Haryana).
‘Saif Ali Khan Royal Family’ can be traced back to the 19th century British rule in India with the emergence of the Pashtun Dynasty of Afghanistan. Several people have the view that ‘Saif Ali Khan Son’ (Taimur) from his second wife Kareena Kapoor has been named after the famous Afghan ruler Taimur Lang.
Saif attended the Lawrence School in Sanawar, Himachal Pradesh, before being sent to Lockers Park School in Hertfordshire (England) when he was nine years old. He then went on to study at Winchester College. He returned to India after graduation and spent two months working for an ad agency in Delhi.
In October, he married co star Amrita Singh. They separated in 2004. Saif Ali Khan’s first wife’s daughter is the budding actress Sara Ali Khan, and they have a son Ibrahim Ali Khan. Saif married again in October 2012 in Mumbai after a 5-year long courtship. This time, it was the actress Kareena Kapoor. The couple has two sons, one (Taimur) born in 2016 and the other in 2021.
Saif Ali Khan made his acting debut in 1993 in the film titled Parampara. It was directed by Yash Chopra. Later, he appeared in a barrage of many films; many of them were moderate grossers and some big hits. A few notable movies are:
- Mai Khiladi Tu Anari
- Hum Saath-Saath Hain
- Kacche Dhaage
- Dil Chahta Hai
- Kal Ho Naa Ho
Saif believes in swimming against the tide. He never took to cricket as his profession and broke the legacy to join the Bollywood clan!
