1Saif Ali Khan

After Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan is the fourth most bankable Khan of Bollywood. He was born on 16 August 1970 in New Delhi to former Indian Cricket Team captain, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, who hailed from the prestigious royal family of Pataudis, and noted film actress, Sharmila Tagore. Mansoor Ali Khan was Nawab of Pataudi from the year 1952–71. Following his, Saif was crowned the tenth Nawab of Pataudi in a pagri ceremony held in the village of Pataudi, Haryana.

After completing his graduation from the boarding school, Khan came back to India and joined an advertising industry in New Delhi. He worked there for two months before appearing in a television commercial for Gwalior Suiting on the behest of a friend. Subsequently, he was roped in by director Anand Mahindroo, but, unfortunately, the project could not materialize, but Saif relocated to Mumbai to join Hindi films. He finally made his acting debut with Yash Chopra’s unsuccessful film ‘Parampara’ in 1993. The movie also starred actor Aamir Khan. He achieved success with his romantic roles in movies like ‘Yeh Dillagi’ (1995), ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’ (1994). Following the success of these two films, Khan was offered several other movies. In years to come, Saif went on to star in films like ‘Bambai Ka Babu’ (1996), ‘Tu Chor Main Sipahi’ (1996), ‘Hamesha’ (1997), ‘Udaan’ (1997), ‘Keemat’ (1998) ‘Humse Badhkar Kaun’ (1998), ‘Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan’ (1999), ‘Kachche Dhaage’ (1999), ‘Aarzoo’ (1999) and ‘Hum Saath-Saath Hain’ (1999).

By the end of 1990s, Khan had done more than a dozen of movies but he hardly got a role which could have brought him the kind of fame and success which he would have imagined. However, the beginning of the new centaury changed his life forever. His performance in Farhan Akhtar’s directorial debut ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ (2001) turned out to be the best rated performance of his career. The critically and financially successful movie marked a major turning point in the career of the actor, winning him the Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Comic Role. It kind of uplifted the sinking career of Nawab. After the thunderous success of ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ (2001), Saif appeared in several well received films including ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ (2003), ‘Ek Haseena Thi’ (2004), ‘Hum Tum’ (2005), ‘Parineeta’ (2005), ‘Omkara’ (2006), ‘Love Aaj Kal’ (2009), and ‘Cocktail’ (2012), to mention a few. The actor is currently awaiting the release of his films ‘Chef’ and ‘Bazaar’.

TRIVIA: The actor is popularly considered as the ‘Chote Nawab of Pataudi’. However, the Government of India has abolished the official existence of princely titles.

  1. The royal people had entertainers in their court for recreational activities and now they are using their royalty to use the aristrocracy of PULL and get livelihood by becoming entertainers. If you read between the lines and logically derive concusions from history you will see that these royals are the reason for our country’s poverty and pathetic condition. They were traitors of the lowest order and thats how they got privileges.

  3. I read someone wrote Royalties have no talents and the other wrote Entertainers to some royalties. great contradiction. Some royal families are doing good in different professions.
    Still it is a fashion to write anything and everything which is indecent for the Royalties. This is expected from those who are jealous and to some extend unsuccessful compared to their expectations. India is known for its heritage which is built and established by the Royalties. The MPs and MLAs are paid and looked after by the government on the cost of people of the country. We know what and how much they contributed in the system.

    It was published few years back that a parliamentarian had once raised his opposition for the privileges being extended to the Royal families of UK. He was beaten up by others dragging him out of the British Parliament saying that “you are not a true British”. The character of Britishers have helped them to earn respect in the world.

    There are only few in India who know about Royalties, majority of people know to talk against Royalties without or with superficial information on Royalties. They can only write and speak to ventilate their own short comings and cannot do any thing to clean the political and social system (Vaani Vilas). I pray Almighty to provide them the strength for the purpose.

  4. In India now the synonyms of Royal is Politician. So guys do not dare to shout on Royals. Only you are allowed only to speak on Muqhals, who does not exist, only because the by doing that your distract yourself from the basic need you demand from current Royals. Poor and innocent Indians.

  5. All negative comments by Non-Royals as expected… The whole country would have been bowing to another religion had the Rajputs not halted this threat. The culture of Hindus and of India was started a d protected by these same Royals who are being denigrated. Shame on those nay-sayers.
