Saif Ali Khan is not known as chote nawab for nothing. Often known for his starry tantrums and nawabi attitude (which even turned off Dhoni and his ‘Men in blue’ recently during an ad shoot), Saif has no qualms in flaunting his blue blood and super-star status time and again.
Sticking to his image, Saif just recently rejected a movie offer for his eight year old son Ibrahim only because it was an animation film! Ibrahim was supposed to play his age in the film which was targeted for the kids, but Saif turned down the offer on the grounds of the ‘low exposure’ his son would get!
Rajiv Ruia, director of My Friend Ganesha , known for making animation films said, “I had approached Saif, as I wanted Ibrahim to play a part in one of my forthcoming animation films. However, Saif rejected my offer saying he would like his son to debut in a commercial big banner film, since that would give him a better exposure!”
The filmmaker also spoke about Jackie Shroff and his wish to see his son debut in a commercial film instead of a children’s animation film.
“I had also approached Tiger, teenage son of Jackie Shroff for one of my films. But his was the same reaction! He also denied my request saying, he would like his son to enter films when he is 22 and that too as a lead actor instead of a child actor.”
Apparently the audiences will soon see Saif’s son Ibrahim in Yash Raj’s next Tashan , where he will be playing himself. Our sources confirmed the news saying, “Ibrahim plays the role of Saif’s son in Tashan . He has already shot for his scenes. Both Saif and mother Amrita Singh were present on the sets and the son displayed a natural flair for acting like his parents! Ibrahim who strongly resembles his dad is comfortable in front of the camera. Amrita Singh stood by him throughout the entire shoot and applauded him for his performance while Saif joked that his kiddo has the charisma to steal the limelight from him!”
If sources are to be believed, Jackie’s son Tiger has also been signed by showman Subhash Ghai for one of his forthcoming films!
Talk about big banners and thus bigger publicity! And we thought only Sonam and Ranbir were the youngest of the star kids to make a dazzling debut! We wonder which big banner has signed Madhuri’s, Akshay Kumar’s and Ajay Devgan’s kids!
