Saif Ali Khan ([ˈsɛːf əˈli ˈxaːn]; born Sajid Ali Khan on 16 August 1970) is an Indian film actor, producer and the 10th Nawab of Pataudi. Through his successful career in Hindi films, Khan has established himself as one of the most popular actors of Indian cinema. He is the recipient of several awards, including a National Film Award and six Filmfare Awards, and was honoured by the Government of India with the Padma Shri in 2010.
Saif ali Khan is the son of the former Indian cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan and the actress Sharmila Tagore. Having made his acting debut in 1992 with Yash Chopra's Parampara, he had his first success with the 1994 films Main Khiladi Tu Anari and Yeh Dillagi. After going through several years of decline throughout the 1990s, Khan rose to prominence with his performance in Farhan Akhtar's Dil Chahta Hai (2001). His work in Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003) won him the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor, and he was awarded the National Film Award for Best Actor for his performance in Hum Tum (2004). Khan had further mainstream success with films like Salaam Namaste (2005) and Race (2008). He also starred in critically acclaimed films such as Parineeta (2005), Being Cyrus and Omkara (2006). In 2009, Khan branched out into film production with his company Illuminati Films, whose first release was Love Aaj Kal.
In addition to film acting, Khan is also a stage performer. He was married to actress Amrita Singh for thirteen years; they have two children together. He married actress Kareena Kapoor in 2012.
Khan married actress Amrita Singh, who is 12 years older, in October 1991. After thirteen years of marriage and two children (daughter born in 1993, and son born in 2001), the couple divorced in 2004. The children live with their mother.
After his divorce, he dated Rosa Catalano, a Swiss model born in Italy, whom he met in Kenya, for three years. Catalano later revealed that he had not told her about his earlier marriage and children, and that she learnt about them only after she came to India. They were later said to be considering marriage, but then broke up.
On 18 February 2007, Khan was admitted to Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai due to chest pain while rehearsing for his performance at the Stardust Awards, to be held that night. After being discharged from the hospital, he stated he would quit smoking.
Khan had been dating actress Kareena Kapoor since October 2007. Kapoor is 10 years younger to him. In October 2009 he publicly spoke of his relationship with Kapoor and the prospect of marriage stating, that in his opinion people said that marriage does not affect one's career but in fact it does and that today the whole definition of marriage has changed. He said, that he and Kareena were so well connected, so close that marriage is just a stamp of validation for the society. Saif and Kareena got married in court on 16 October 2012.
On 22 September 2011 Khan's father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi died. To please the sentiments of some residents of the village Pataudi of Haryana, a "pagri" ceremony was held which symbolically installed him as the tenth Nawab of Pataudi; however, the princely title has had no official recognition since 1971. The 'pagri' ceremony was attended by the incumbent Chief Minister of Haryana.
