Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s son Ibrahim Ali Khan is all set to enter into film industry. In fact, Saif even confirmed this development in a latest chat with SpotboyE. Speaking to the portal, Saif revealed that Ibrahim is ‘prepared’ to make a career in acting.
Saif also revealed that acting saved him from ‘self destruction’ when he was just starting out. He said, “Ibrahim seems prepared for a career in acting. And why not? I’d like all my children to be in this profession. It is the best place to work in. I remember at 17-18 I was a mess. Acting saved me from self-destruction. Having the job, the sense of identity it has given me job satisfaction. Also, the enjoyment it has given me is more than I could ask for.”
Saif added, “He should (join Bollywood), he’s looking good, better looking than I am! He’s a very charming guy. I definitely think all of my children would be interested in acting. We’re an acting family, the whole bunch of us are in the industry. So I’m sure. He’s still a little young, and I’m keener that he does university first. Then, of course, we’ll support him in whatever he wants to do.”
He added, however, that he may or may not launch him. “I don’t know if I will launch him. It’s an option and films are certainly a viable career choice for him. He’s sporty and likes the idea of being in the movies rather than pursuing an academic job. No one in the family, with the exception of his sister (Sara), have been interested in the latter anyway,” Saif told the portal.
When asked what advice he would give his son, Saif added, “It’s a different universe now, with different benchmarks. I would tell him to be well prepared and choose his films carefully.” The actor is currently shooting in Dalhousie for his upcoming film Bhoot Police and is also expecting his second child with Kareena Kapoor Khan after Taimur.
