SAIF ALI KHAN HAS FOUND A HAPPY ENDING TO HIS DILEMMAS. RAEDITA TANDAN IS IMPRESSED BY THIS TRUE PRINCE OF COOL
Excerpts from the interview:
“When your ﬁlm ﬂops, people look at you like you don’t know a ﬁlm from a hole in the wall. You get lectures on how to choose your ﬁlms even from your ofﬁce staff “, says Saif.
Most believe that you have it all – a royal lineage and a glamorous life as an actor…
(Smiles) It is a perfect life ya. They are right. I’ve nothing to complain about, really. I have a cellar stocked with good wine. A lovely lady at home (Kareena Kapoor Khan). I love my mother (Sharmila Tagore), my sisters (Soha and Saba Ali Khan) and my wonderful children (Sara and Ibrahim). Now even my ex-wife (Amrita Singh) and I are getting along. We are discussing our children’s future.
Romcoms are your niche. You agree?
Yeah. I like the conversational style of acting. So I can offer it as competition to others and say, ‘This is what I do best’. I have a certain spirit and energy, which if used well on screen, can be unique.
Being the romcom king, has your deﬁnition of love changed over the years?
(Pauses) Now I know that love is verb. It has to be practised. It’s not just a word. You are your actions.
One lesson you’ve learnt…
That a situation can be fixed if you try. And that people are forgiving.
