Saif Ali Khan left his critics dumfounded with Omkara With Omkara (2006) as Langda Tyagi, Saif Ali Khan got immortalized in the history of Indian cinema as an actor par excellence. With his mesmerizing performance, Saif took the film critics by surprise and left them dumbfounded. The highlight of the role was that Saif portrayed an uneducated and village guy which was totally in contrast to his English upbringing and his personality. In an interview he confessed that he had hard times learning the village dialect and the peculiar Uttar Pradesh accent but he practiced to live the character. Also the handsome looking Saif was deglamorised but Saif was overjoyed to play the character as his mother has been critical of his routine Bollywood roles and suggested him to do classy roles like Shakespeare, in particular Othello. Hence when Vishal offered him offered Othello, Saif was wonderstruck. He felt as if his wish has been fulfilled. Saif pumped all his energy into the Langda Tyagi’s role and infused it with vicarious villainy that made him everlasting on the silver screen. Saif’s passion for the role can be gauged from the fact that he wrote his dialogues in English and would practice them while going for jogging in the forest or while vacationing in Switzerland or Italy. As a result he was so prepared with his role that when he faced the camera for the first shot, he stunned everybody by a single take!!! Film director Vishal Bhardwaj was so overwhelmed that from that day he began addressing Saif as ‘Khansahab’!!

Saif Ali Khan as a child was impulsive and moody. According Saif Ali Khan’s mother, popular actress Sharmila Tagore, Saif was quite impulsive and moody. Though he was quite intelligent and bright but he never focused on his studies and this reflected in his report card. Hence he was shifted from The Lawrence School, Sanawar in Himachal Pradesh to England’s Lockers Park Boarding School in Hertfordshire at the age of nine. Here he mingled with both the elite and the taxi driver. He mixed with all. He had high regards for his father, eminent cricket legend, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. He recalls that his father’s persona and his brave inning of 200 runs against England despite losing his one eye inspired him a lot to face obstacles in life. Saif is obliged to his dad because it was due to his father’s charisma in cricketing world hence at UK school he got royal treatment in the late 70’s when the English had grudge against Indians and racism was dominant. Saif Ali Khan was being groomed for cricket but he rebelled Saif Ali Khan has a legacy of cricket in his family. His father, Mansoor Ali Khan was India’s youngest captain and a dashing cricketer. His grandfather Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi played for the Indian cricket team in England in 1946. Hence it was oblivious that Saif will continue the family legacy but Saif asserts that he lacked the skill of a champion sportsman. Though till the age 10-12 he was groomed by his father Mansoor Ali Khan but when Saif began to rebel and displayed lack of interest in the game his father did not force cricket on him.

Saif Ali Khan has been romantic at heart When Saif Ail Khan was just 21 years, he fell in love with Bollywood actress Amrita Singh, who was 12 years older than Saif. Though Saif’s parents were against the marriage, Saif run away and secretly tied the nuptial knot with Amrita in 1991. However after 13 years of marriage the two separated 2004. Saif met Rosa Catalano during a show in Kenya and the two feel in love. The two made headline in media but soon they broke because Saif had hidden the fact he is married and has two children. After being disappointed in love with Rosa, Saif fell in love with Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor during the shooting of Yash Chopra’s Tashan. Both shared a striking chemistry. Since Kareena had just broken from Shahid Kapoor, she was in search of a man on whom she could trust and in Saif she found a truthful friend. The duo started dating in October 2007 and after five years of romance they married on October 16, 2012.

Saif Ali Khan’s decision to join film stunned his parents Saif Ali Khan’s parents had never dreamt that Saif will take a career in films hence when he first appeared in TV commercial for Gwalior Suiting his parents were taken aback. Actually after graduation, Saif had secured a job in a multinational company in Delhi. Hence he was away from his parents. At Delhi, a friend enticed him to do advertisement hence Saif did the Gwalior Suiting commercial but his parents were angry. They tried to cajole him to pull out after the Gwalior Suiting advertisement. But from Delhi, Saif landed in Mumbai to make a career in films. Filmmaker Rahul Rawail sacked Saif from the sets as he was not serious After rebelling from his parents and doing TV commercial, Saif moved to Mumbai and started acting in a film which was being directed by eminent film director Rahul Rawail (who made Love Story, Betaab, Arjun etc.). However, Saif was so haughty and was not at all serious in his acting hence one day, film director, Rahul Rawail got angry and sacked him out of the film. A dejected Saif returned to his house and complaint about Rahul Rawail to his mother, Sharmila Tagore, who tried to pacify Rawail but he declined. Later his mother decided to place Saif under the guidance of film director Gulzar but Saif declined to work under Gulzar alleging that he is old fashioned and orthodox filmmaker. Finally, Yash Chopra and Umesh Mehra came to his rescue and Saif made his film debut with Yash Chopra’s multi starrer Parampara (1993) opposite Raveena Tandon. The film had big stars like Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Aamir Khan etc. but the film was flopped. Interestingly Saif’s second film Aashiq Awara (1993) directed by Umesh Mehra and made on a shoe string budget turned out a surprise hit and opened doors of Bollywood for Saif. After Aashiq Aawara, Saif had a great downfall With Aashiq Aawara becoming hit, Saif was flooded with offer but being less experienced in films, Saif got carried away by stardom. He signed wrong film and faced a bitter phase in his career. He gave a row of flops like Dil Tera Diwana,Imtihaan etc. He lacked acting skill, his dialogue delivery was poor and he was too fair hence he was discarded as feminine by film buffs. His Jodi with Akshay Kumar gave him a new lease of life When Saif was going through a lean phase, Yash Chopra signed him in a love triangle Yeh Dillagi with Akshay Kumar and Kajol. The movie was hit, particularly, his song 'Ole Ole' is still a big craze among film buffs. His Jodi with Akshay Kumar became hit and was followed by Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Tu Chor Main Sipahi etc. His other hit film was Kachche Dhaage opposite Ajay Devgn. With multiple flops Saif began to take his career seriously and even improved as an actor. In both the films Main Khiladi Tu Anari and Kachche Dhaage he was nominated by Filmfare award as best supporting actor. Aamir Khan’s Dil Chahta Hai proved a turning point in Saif’s career In 2001 Saif got a golden opportunity to work opposite great actors like Aamir Khan, Dimple Kapadia and Akshaye Khanna in the film Dil Chahta Hai. The film was brilliantly directed by Farhan Akhtar. The movie was a major hit and it bought Saif Ali Khan his first Filmfare Award as best comedian. Saif tight-lipped his critics by winning a chain of awards including National Award After Dil Chahta Hai, Saif’s career took an amazing turn and he began signing quality films. In addition Saif began focusing on his character. The result was that from 2003 to 2009 Saif won a chain of awards, including National Award. In 2003, Saif won the Filmfare Best Supporting actor award for his excellent performance in Kal Ho Naa Ho and the next year in 2004 he stunned his hardcore critics by winning a National Award for Best Actor in Yash Chopra’s light hearted comedy Hum Tum. Interestingly in 2005, yet again Saif was in news for his effortless performance Pradeep Sarkar directed film Parineeta. He won Filmafare nomination as Best supporting actor. The year 2006 witnessed Saif in his career’s Best Performance in Omkara and won him Filmfare Best Actor in Negative role. In 2008 Saif was at his stylish best in Abbas Mastan’s Race.
