Saif Ali Khan Height Weight Age Biography Family Wiki Net Worth, Affairs, Marriage & much more. Saif Ali Khan (born Sajid Ali Khan Pataudi on 16 August 1970) is an Indian actor and producer who works in Hindi films. The son of actress Sharmila Tagore and cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan, Khan made his acting debut in Yash Chopra’s drama Parampara (1993), but achieved success with his roles in the romantic drama Yeh Dillagi and the action film Main Khiladi Tu Anari (both 1994). Khan’s career prospect declined through much of the 1990s, and his biggest commercial success of the decade came with the ensemble family drama Hum Saath-Saath Hain (1999). He rose to prominence with roles in two ensemble comedy-dramas—Dil Chahta Hai (2001) and Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003).

The 2004 romantic comedy Hum Tum proved to be Khan’s first success in which he played the sole male lead, earning him the National Film Award for Best Actor, and starring roles in the drama Parineeta and the romantic comedy-drama Salaam Namaste (both 2005) established him as a leading actor in Bollywood. He earned wide critical praise for his portrayal of a manipulative businessman in the 2004 thriller Ek Hasina Thi, an apprentice in the 2006 English film Being Cyrus, a character based on William Shakespeare’s antagonist Iago in the 2006 crime drama Omkara, and a terrorist in the 2009 thriller Kurbaan. Khan’s greatest commercial successes came with the 2008 thriller Race and its 2013 sequel, the 2009 romantic drama Love Aaj Kal, and the 2012 romantic comedy-drama Cocktail. Following films that under-performed at the box office, he received praise for playing a troubled policeman in the Netflix thriller series Sacred Games and a Rajput fort keeper in the historical drama Tanhaji (2020). The latter emerged as highest-grossing release and earned him his second Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Khan is the recipient of several accolades, including a National Film Award and seven Filmfare Awards, and received Padma Shri, the fourth highest Indian civilian award, in 2010. He has been noted for his performances in a range of film genres—from crime dramas to action thrillers and comic romances—and his film roles have been credited with contributing to a change in the concept of a Hindi film hero. Khan was married to his first wife, Amrita Singh, for thirteen years, after which he married actress Kareena Kapoor. He has four children—two with Singh and two with Kapoor. In addition to film acting, Khan is a frequent television presenter, stage show performer, and the owner of the production companies Illuminati Films and Black Knight Films.

Early life and family

Khan was born on 16 August 1970 in New Delhi, India to Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, a former captain of the Indian national cricket team, and his wife Sharmila Tagore, a film actress. Khan’s father, who was the son of the last ruling Nawab of the princely state of Pataudi during the British Raj, received a privy purse from the Government of India under terms worked out in the Political integration of India and was allowed to use the title Nawab of Pataudi until 1971 when the title was abolished. Following Mansur Ali Khan’s death in 2011, a symbolic pagri ceremony was held in the village of Pataudi, Haryana to “crown” Khan as the “tenth Nawab of Pataudi,” which Khan attended to please the sentiments of the villagers, who wanted him to continue a family tradition. Khan has two younger sisters, jewelry designer Saba Ali Khan and actress Soha Ali Khan, and is the paternal grandson of Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi who played for the Indian cricket team in England in 1946, and Sajida Sultan, the Nawab Begum of Bhopal. Hamidullah Khan, the last ruling Nawab of Bhopal was his great-grandfather, and the cricketer Saad Bin Jung is his first cousin.

Speaking about his childhood, Khan said that he was exposed to a “life beyond movies”, and his mother described him as someone who was “not an easy child […] He was impulsive [and] spontaneous.” Saif grew up a Muslim. As a child, he recalls fond memories of watching his father playing cricket in the garden, and has emphasised his father’s education and background as having a lasting impression on how family life was conducted. Khan studied at The Lawrence School, Sanawar in Himachal Pradesh and was later sent to Lockers Park School in Hertfordshire at the age of nine. He next enrolled at Winchester College and explained that “I did not take advantage of my tenure [there]. My classmates went on to Oxford and Cambridge, but I was not academically inclined. When I applied myself, which was not often, I stood first. I should have studied harder.”

After graduating from the boarding school, Khan returned to India and worked for an advertising firm in Delhi for two months. He later appeared in the television commercial for Gwalior Suiting on the insistence of a family friend, and was subsequently cast by director Anand Mahindroo. The project eventually got cancelled but Khan relocated to Mumbai to pursue a career in film; he recalls, “Finally I had some direction and focus. I remember […] feeling so excited that I could go to Mumbai, stay in my own place and enjoy the adventure of starting my own career.”

Controversies• In 1994, he allegedly beat Kanan Divecha (assistant editor of film magazine Star and Style), after the magazine published an article about Saif’s EX-wife Amrita Singh’s alleged affair with a film actor. After much delay by the Mumbai Police, the High Court ordered Saif and Amrita to settle the matter out of court, and apologize, which they did in 1999.

• In 1995, Ashok Row Kavi (gay rights activist) said that Saif beat him inside his house in Santacruz, Mumbai. He also said that Saif not only assaulted his mother too. Actually, a magazine called Bombay Dost had reviewed Saif and Akshay Kumar starring film Main Khiladi Tu Anadi as a gay film, apart from that they also mocked Saif’s mother Sharmila Tagore, which made him angry.

• In 1998, he, along with co-stars Salman Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam Kothari, were charged with poaching two blackbucks in Kankani, Rajasthan during the filming of Hum Saath Saath Hain, after which the lower court charged them under the Wildlife Act and the Indian Penal Code. Later, Saif filed a revision petition before a sessions court, which soon discharged him of Section 51 (causing harm to wildlife) of Wildlife Act, Section 147 (punishment for rioting) and 149 (unlawful assembly of persons) of the Indian Penal Code. The Rajasthan state government then filed a revision petition before the Rajasthan high court, which again added Section 149 against Khan. The Jodhpur court summoned him along with all the accused of the commencement of the trial with the revised charges in February 2013. On 5 April 2018, Saif, along with “Hum Saath Saath Hain” co-stars, Tabu, Neelam Kothari, and Sonali Bendre were acquitted by a Jodhpur court in the 1998 blackbuck killing case, in which Salman Khan was convicted and was sentenced to 5-year, Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri pronounced the verdict.

• In 2008, during the filming of Love Aaj Kal, he allegedly beat a photographer, Pawan Sharma at Patiala railway station.

• In 2012, he assaulted an Indian businessman from South Africa at the Taj Hotel in Colaba, Mumbai.


• After the hotel brawl, Saif’s Padma Shri, which he received in 2010, was called into question by RTI activist S C Agrawal, who filed a complaint with the Union Home Ministry, saying that Saif should not be allowed to retain the award- conferred by President Pratibha Patil on him for his contribution as an artist because a Mumbai court has charged him with assaulting an Indian businessman from South Africa at the Taj Hotel, Mumbai in 2012.


• In 2013, when he was asked to leave the VIP lounge at the Chowdhary Charan Singh Airport in Lucknow; as he was not entitled to it, Saif allegedly refused to follow the instructions, after which an argument resulted in a brawl, which was stopped by the intervention of senior officials of the airport.

• In January 2020, Saif attracted controversy for his “concept of India” comment. In an interview with Anupama Chopra when he was asked if it bothers him that the “politics in Tanhaji is questionable.” Saif replied, “I don’t think this is history. I don’t think there was a concept of India till the British gave it one.” This comment enraged the internet. [1]

Off-screen work

Alongside his acting career, Khan has participated in several concert tours and televised award ceremonies. He performed in his first concert tour, “Temptations 2004”, with actors Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Arjun Rampal and Priyanka Chopra. Showcased in over 22 countries across the world, it became Bollywood’s most prominent international concert to that point. In December 2005, Khan performed alongside the band Parikrama at the Mittal Gardens in New Delhi, and later reunited with them and Strings for “The Royal Stag Mega Music Concert” (a four-city concert tour) two years later. The following year, he was part of the “Heat 2006” world tour, along with Akshay Kumar, Preity Zinta, Sushmita Sen and Celina Jaitley. He later performed along with several other Bollywood personalities at the closing ceremony of the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Since October 2011, Khan has taken the responsibility of managing his father’s eye hospital and has also made public appearances to support various other charitable causes. In February 2005, Khan and several other Bollywood actors participated in the 2005 HELP! Telethon Concert to raise money for the victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. He took part in a charity cricket match organised by IIFA at Headingley Cricket Ground in West Yorkshire, England in 2007, and later hosted an event organised by the award ceremony to help raise funds for various charities in 2011. In November 2008, Khan performed in a concert to raise money for the victims of the 2008 Bihar flood and in September 2013, he attended a charity dinner organised by The Venu Eye institute, donating two of his personal belongings to help raise funds for cataract operations. Later that year, he spent time with underprivileged kids during the filming of Bullett Raja. In October 2014, Khan was appointed as an ambassador for Olympic Gold Quest and donated ₹2 million (US$26,000) to help raise funds for the training of athletes.

Accolades

Among Khan’s film awards are a National Film Award for Best Actor and seven Filmfare Awards out of twelve nominations: Best Male Debut for Aashiq Awara (1993), Best Performance in a Comic Role for Dil Chahta Hai (2001) and Hum Tum (2004), Best Supporting Actor for Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), Best Performance in a Negative Role for Omkara (2006) and the “Moto Look of the Year” for Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003).
