On his daughter Sara, who is gearing up for her debut film Kedarnath, Saif says he always knew she wanted to be an actress.
“I have seen her do a very funny advert when she was four and she’s been like this all along. There was actress Aishwarya Rai on stage in New York with people going ballistic and Sara sitting on the floor behind the curtain saying ‘This is what I want to do’,” said Saif.
“She always wanted to do this, it’s just that she took a header you know a shine to academics and then ended up doing so well at Columbia that one thought came, listen maybe a slightly more stable thing because I don’t know… who knows. I wish her all the best.”
“It is like Soha’s track but Soha didn’t always want to become an actor, Sara did and this is something that she really wants to do so absolutely good luck I think it’s a great job. We’d be talking about Sushant Singh Rajput all day which is great but it’s not as interesting as discussing history with art like we used to,” he added.
Taimur has been in the limelight even before his birth. Saif says he is a “blue-eyed boy”.
“He is a genetic treasure trove, he is. He has got a bit of Rabindranath Tagore, he is a bit of Raj Kapoor, a bit of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, a little bit of Bhopal. It’s beyond me,” said Saif.
