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."
