Saif Ali Khan has yet again opened up about his children’s career and wants both his sons to follow in his footsteps. While Khan is sure about his elder son Ibrahim Ali Khan becoming an actor, he won’t mind seeing younger son Taimur Ali Khan also becoming an actor since he’s very entertaining already.
In an appearance in Jacqueline Fernandez and Amanda Cerny’s podcast, recorded recently in Dharamshala, the actor was asked to give a brief history about his family and how he wants his kids to grow up. Saif said he comes from a culturally rich family in which his mother’s side is related to Rabindranath Tagore and a long line of artists and painters.. He added that most of the people in his family are actors including his daughter Sara Ali Khan and ex wife Amrita Singh.
Saif was quoted as saying, ‘My mother’s been doing films since she was 16. She worked with Satyajit Ray a lot, and did about four or five movies with him. She was his muse, and he thought of her as the ultimate female representation of his art. My sister is kind of in the movies, my wife, my ex-wife as well… So all of us. My daughter, my elder son wants to be an actor, and I think Taimur will be an actor for sure, he’s entertaining us already.’
Earlier, in an interview with Spotboye, Saif had said that he thinks of acting as the best profession and Ibrahim seems prepared for a career in acting. Khan said he would be extremely happy if all his kids choose the same. He said that acting saved him from self-destruction when he was 17-18 and he would want his kids to experience the same joy in life.
