Saif Ali Khan, one of the first film stars who forayed into digital shows, has recently become involved with a TV soap Kahan Hum Kahan Tum, starring Dipika Kakkar and Karan V. Grover in the lead.

Speaking about the project, Saif says that he took on the project after being inspired by his own parents’ story, Mansoor Ali Khan and Sharmila Tagore. The actor muses that his parents balanced their personal and professional lives well despite having starkly different careers, much like the characters on the show. “At a very early age, I have learned to respect the various differences that come in the way of a relationship. This is because my parents had different professional lives — my father was a cricketer and my mother a renowned actress,” he says. “Despite their hectic schedules, they balanced their personal life and didn’t make it a hurdle in taking their relationship ahead. They respected and supported each other throughout their lives and truly inspired me to follow their footsteps.”

 

Saif’s father Mansoor Ali Khan, more commonly known as Tiger Pataudi, was a connoisseur of Indian cricket and also the former captain of the Indian team. Saif’s mother, Sharmila Tagore is a renowned actress in Bollywood.
