Happy Birthday Saif Ali Khan: This Prince Is Truly Different

Kolkata: One of highest paid actors in India, birthday boy Saif Ali Khan is considered among the most popular and high profile celebrities in the country. He has always been a trendsetter and tried to break the stereotype.

Being the son of one of the most astute Indian cricket captains Nawab Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and legendary actress Sharmila Tagore, he was always under the radar of fierce criticism. But he kept evolving and fighting through the barbs fired at him. He has always been a fighter, when people started to doubt if his career was over, he came back with a bang in – a trendsetting web series in its own right, Sacred Games on Netflix. Here are five reasons why Saif Ali khan is different:

1. Preferred Love to Career: When he married Amrita Singh he was 22 (before his film debut) and she was 34 and that took all by surprise in the early ’90s. Eyebrows were raised but he was unperturbed.
2. No to rat race: He never tried to compete with the other Khans. Being a Khan himself, everybody expected him to make blockbuster movies again and again like Amir, Salman and Shah Rukh but he has always been very choosy.
3. Broke rules: Thanks to Vishal Bhardwaj’s  Omkara which was inspired by William Shakespeare’s Othello, Saif took his career to new heights. Playing the baddie, his on-screen rustic charm was contrary to his elite image off it. Be it Parineeta, Hum Tum, for which he won the National Award for Best Actor, Kal Ho Naa Ho or others, he has always raised the bar.
4. Not image conscious: Despite being a Nawab, Saif exudes a happy-go-lucky air that endears him to all. No hang ups, he has never shied away from even playing second fiddle on screen. And he has stood out.
5. Ever candid: He has never really hidden his love life – marriage to Amrita Singh and then divorce in 2004,  dating an Italian model Rosa Catalano and later falling in love with Kareena Kapoor whom he married eventually.
