With all the buzz recently about actor Saif Ali Khan working on projects such as Agent Vinod, and Aarakshan and all the news about him being at Cannes film festival this year, we thought we would reflect at the actors past and his road to success.
It took Saif Ali Khan many years to perfect the art of Bollywood acting; we wonder whether it was the bad chose of roles played or simply the British sense of humour that the Indian audiences did just not understand. Saif seemed to have left the audience think twice as to whether he would ever be true Bollywood material.

Son of yester year’s well renowned actress, Sharmila Tagore and famous cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Patodi, success had definitely come the hard way for this actor, who recently stated that he felt weird watching his earlier films; high waist jeans and the long hair cut. Though a trend setter, Saif was never quite the actor known to deliver solo hero films.
However, all changed with the block buster hit, Kal Ho Na Ho, though the movie starred Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta who were already established at the time, Saif’s performance did not go unnoticed. The film boosted his profile as a Bollywood actor, and thereafter he starred in many successful films like; Parineeta, Hum Tum, Omkara and Love Aaj Kal to name a few.
Nevertheless being successful in Bollywood comes with a price, his personal life was on the rocks, married to Amrita Singh at the tender age of 21 years, Saif began dating Italian dancer Rosa Catalano and ended his 13 year marriage with Amrita. However, that wasn’t the end of his love story, in 2007 he started dating one of Bollywood’s most successful actresses, Kareena Kapoor who he lovingly calls, Bebo.
With the constant media interference as to when will he drop the big question to Kareena, Saif feels that less concentration is given to him as an actor and more as a lover. Well, that’s another price to pay in Bollywood; once you start dating a popular celebrity, the media will follow you everywhere. Keeping it all hush hush about his plans to wed Kareena, the actor has been focusing on his up coming projects, Agent Vinod and Aarakshan.
Now with daughter Sara growing up so fast, and having the aspiration to become an actress already, Saif is one B-town celeb who will always remain in the limelight.
We wish him wel
