Saif Ali Khan is on a redefining journey with his choice of movies and also in the fashion world. While the soft actor was running the path of memory recently during an interview on an online portal, he recalled his early days in the industry that were far from perfect, as he often received many criticisms.
Saif, the son of the Mansoor cricketer Ali Khan Pataudi and the actor Sharmila Tagore opened up on the kind of comments he received about his appearance, since he did not fit the mold of a hero par excellence. He said: "I didn't look like a hero. Akshay Kumar did it. I looked a bit feminine, with my long hair. I was quite distressed … very different from the Indian idea of the male Dharmendra type. Usually, I received comments about looking like a girl … I certainly had a very bad voice that I hadn't worked in. So, I was there screaming with an English accent.
Adding more, he revealed: “My mother jokes about it. She was having lunch with me recently and said: "People must have initially thought that Tiger and my son will be this really awesome figure,quot; (laughs) Genes and all that, I don't know how much it matters. "
Saif made his Bollywood debut with the Yash Chopra Parampara in 1993.
The actor recalled his first audition, which he admitted was terrible and disclosed details that said: "The phrase was: & # 39; Arre, Devdas ke avatar, ab koi doosra role pakad yaar & # 39; but I, with a certain accent English, he said: & # 39; Arre, Dev saab ke classroom … & # 39; It was quite funny and really bad.
