Born to two illustrious parents, the Nawab of Pataudi and the erstwhile beauty Sharmila Tagore, Saif Ali Khan made a foray into the world of acting with Aashiq Aawara with Mamta Kulkarni. The film became a hit and Saif was hot property.
But after his next few films Dil Tera Diwana, Mr. Aashiq, Imtihaan, Parampara and many others didn't done well, he was on the brink of getting written off. Besides, people found him too "chikna" and feminine for a mainstream hardcore hero. Suddenly he had Yash Chopra's Yeh Dillagi with Akshay Kumar and Kajol, which was a major success. His 'Ole Ole' and 'Hothon Pe Bus Tera Naam' numbers emerged chartbusters. Close on the heels of Yeh Dillagi, his Main Khiladi Tu Anari with Akshay Kumar also clicked. It was boom-time for Saif again, but not for long, because his next two releases with Akshay Kumar bit dust: Keemat and Tu Chor Main Sipahi. He was banking heavily on Hameshaa which again didn't work. He found relief with Kya Kehna proving to be an average-runer and Hum Saath Saath Hain, a medium hit and with debut director Farhan Akhtar's Dil Chahta Hai' with Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Dimple Kapadia a major hit.
He followed it up with memorable performances as a comic eligible bachelor in Kal Ho Naa Ho, a manipulative gangster in Ek Hasina Thi, and a light-hearted cartoonist in Hum Tum. His performance in Hum Tum won him the National Film Award for Best Actor. These commercial successes were followed by a critically acclaimed performance in Parineeta and Salaam Namaste, both of which were also hits in India and overseas. In 2006 Khan played the lead role in the offbeat English-language film Being Cyrus and bagged enormous acclaim for his villanious role in the recently released 'Othello' adaptation Omkara.
Saif was part of a troupe that included Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Arjun Rampal and Priyanka Chopra, which went on as a successful "Temptations 2004" world tour.
The upcoming Vidhu Vinod Chopra film, Eklavya: The Royal Guard, brings together real life mother and son, Sharmila Tagore and Saif Ali Khan. They will share screen space for the first time since Aashiq Awara.
Saif is married to Amrita Singh and has a daughter Sarah. His career may have seen its crests and troughs, but Saif has always been popular and in the news for his tremendous wit, keen sense of humour, immense affability and bold interviews.
