The son of great cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan and gorgeous actress Sharmila Tagore, Saif Ali Khan, has been a prominent face in the Bollywood industry for the last 27 years and has ruled the screens in his young times with his sensational performances. He got his first break as a leading man in the 1993 release Parampara.
But his work was praised and acclaimed by his acting in the next two movies in the immediate next year. Yeh Dillagi and Main Khiladi Tu Anari gave him the kickstart he wanted in his career. But as the ’90s progressed, he only saw a decline in his collections and also didn’t get enough fan following.

He was desperate for hitting the iron when hot and saw the opportunity coming his way in the early 2000s. This opportunity came in 2001 by the name of Dil Chahta Hai and in 2003 in the movie Kal Ho Na Ho. More than this, Saif claimed his chance to fame in the 2004 release Hum Tum wherein he won National Award for best actor and proved himself when it was most required in his career.
This decade brought a lot of awards for the actor, which helped him earn a name for himself. Ek Haseena Thi, which was the directorial debut for Sriram Raghavan had Saif Ali Khan acting in the movie. This was when he gained appreciation form the media people regularly, and it surely became better for him after this. 2009 was a year he always dreamt of giving him all the success he had wanted. Love Aaj Kal with Deepika Padukone and Kurbaan with his now-wife Kareena Kapoor went super hit on the box office.
Career fluctuations have always been part of successful actors in Bollywood, and with Saif, it was no different. The 2010s didn’t start well for Saif as his first release of the decade Aarakshan faced several controversies and also had some post-release issues.
Adding to this, his most ambitious project, Agent Vinod, didn’t go as expected and underperformed at the box office, but still, the actor was well praised for his skills. But Cocktail came in as a financial relief, but this film got the critics talking negatively about Saif’s acting performances.
Saif next tried out the Abbas Mustan directorial Race 2, which rolled out in 2013, but this was predominantly criticized by the experts, and this was no different with this one as well. The last movie that Saif acted in the year 2013 came in the name of Bullet Raja, but this also went in vain, handing the actor only the negative reviews.
He regained some positivity with small successes in the name of Happy Ending and Phantom in the years 2014/2015, respectively. Saif then went for some different genre movies like Rangoon; which was surely not liked by the critics due to its meaningless elongation. But Chef gave him a sigh of relief in his career doing averagely well at the box office.
It was then when he decided to do something creative. And went for the series called Sacred Games, which was a blockbuster in the nation. This gave him his original confidence and dedication back. But his next online project Laal Kaptaan failed to please the audience and failed to gather any attention. But it was visible in his latest hit Tanhaji that Saif surely learned from his mistakes. And proved to be a better one than ever playing a villain like a role.
Saif Ali Khan completed his schooling from The Lawrence School, Sanawar, and graduated from Winchester College. He also had some issues with his former wife, Amrita Singh. Hence he divorced her after 13 long years of marriage. He then married Kareena Kapoor in the year 2012. He now has a 3-year-old son named Taimur along with his elder son Ibrahim Ali Khan and daughter Sara Ali Khan which he had with his earlier wife.
