1Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan is ranked fourth in Bollywood in terms of earning money after Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Salman Khan. The name of his father is Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, who is former captain of Indian Cricket Team. In addition, his father hailed from the respected royal family of Pataudis and renowned film actress, Sharmila Tagore. Saif Ali Khan was born on 16 August 1970 in New Delhi Mansoor Ali Khan remained Nawab of Pataudi from the year 1952–71. After his death, a pagri ceremony was held in the village of Pataudi, Haryana, in order to crown Saif as the tenth Nawab of Pataudi.

After his graduation from abroad, Khan returned to India and started working in the advertising industry in New Delhi. He had two months of experience of working for the advertising industry when he first time modelled in a television commercial for Gwalior  Suiting, honouring the request of his friend. Afterwards, he agreed to work on a project directed by Anand Mahindroo, however, the project could not be materialized. With the aim of joining Hindi films, Saif shifted to Mumbai. He made his entry to the film industry by debuting in Yash Chopra’s film ‘Parampara’ in 1993. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a flop film. Aamir Khan also acted in this movie. His romantic roles in movies like ‘Yeh Dillagi’ (1995), ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’ (1994) earmarked his success. The success of these two films paved the way for numerous other movies. In next a few years, based on his talent, Saif starred in many films including ‘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).

Till the 1990s, Khan had a handsome number of movies to his name, but he was unable to get a role that could have made him a prominent star of the film industry as per his expectation. However, the commencement of the new centaury turned out to be a hallmark for his life. He exhibited the best performance of his career in ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ (2001) directed by Farhan Akhtar. The movie turned out to be a big success and proved to be a major turning point in the career of the actor. Basing on this performance, he was able to win the Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Comic Role. In fact, the movie, Dil Chahta Hai’ (2001), saved his career from sinking. The booming success of ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ (2001) led Saif to appear in quite a few hit films; ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ (2003), ‘Ek Haseena Thi’ (2004), ‘Hum Tum’ (2005), ‘Parineeta’ (2005), ‘Omkara’ (2006), ‘Love Aaj Kal’ (2009), ‘Cocktail’ (2012) etc. Currently, he is anxiously waiting for the release of his films ‘Chef’ and ‘Bazaar’.

TRIVIA: The actor is prevalently perceived as the ‘Chote Nawab of Pataudi’. On the other hand, the Government of India has obliterated the official presence 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.

    • Utter nonsense. The reasons for poverty is the caste system. To cover that up they continued the policy of divide and rule and now want to Divide Indians. It is the Brahmin ploy to keep poor poor and make rich richer. Poor Royals all they had in 1947. When pygmies become the rulers they distribute poverty and kill art and culture. The worst that happened to India was that Vallabh Bhai Patel who was the main cause of partition. To cover up for that failure he killed millions of people across India. Read Sundarlal Report and so many studies that show their murders and impoverishing of their own people. Shame on such leadership and their followers like you.

  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.

  6. Royal is royal no one can change his/her history of royalty or being, we should not be envious.

    Every Country passed this royal phase but they opened up eyes but we still are hesitating
