Saif Ali Khan expresses wish to pen a comedy, horror or political satire
Saif Ali Khan, whose sister Soha Ali Khan has debuted as an author, says he would like to write something in the comedy, horror or political satire space
Mumbai: Actor Saif Ali Khan, whose sister Soha Ali Khan has debuted as an author, says he would like to write something in the comedy, horror or political satire space.
At the launch of Soha's book The Perils of Being Moderately Famous in Mumbai on 12 December, Saif was asked about the kind of book he wants to write if he plans to.
He said: "I would like to write ghost stories (laughs)... I mean chilling tales about life in the movie industry or a political satire or a comedy. So, comedy, horror or a political satire... I am not sure of that. My mother once did want to write a book on me and the title was going to be Oh Saif (laughs)."
On Soha's book, the proud brother said he found it "really funny and well-written with a great sense of humour".
Sharing funny anecdotes about Soha Ali Khan's early days when she was living with Saif Ali Khan in UK Saif said: "Soha went to two wonderful universities. She went to Oxford and London School of Economics. After that, she was working with Citibank and all settled with that. And then she came to stay with me for a summer and quit her job and joined movies. I am not sure how my parents felt about that, but she of course had her mother's genes as well and was drawn to this profession."
Page Turner: In Shivani Sibal’s novel Equations, a portrait of 1980s Delhi and its aspirational inhabitants
Equations is a story of aspiration and social change, of individual ambition and family bonds, told through the lives of two families, the Sikands, a wealthy business clan, and the Kumars, who are the family of their domestic help.
"You can sit with us," wrote #KareenaKapoorKhan on one of her posts.
Omkara was Saif Ali Khan's plunge; it was his way of declaring that since he could not be a star, he would focus on being an actor instead.
