Saif Ali Khan talks about turning 50, quips his mother Sharmila Tagore's genes will help him look younger than his real age


The Nawab of Bollywood Saif Ali Khan hit a half-century on August 16, 2020. Having been a part of Bollywood for over two decades, the actor has seen it all. Talking to Neha Dhupia on her podcast No Filter Neha season 5, Saif revealed that he isn't feeling any ‘mid-life crisis' till now. The actor, further added that turning 50 is petrifying. Calling everyday a 'bonus', Saif said he is quite happy with the way years have passed. 

"Fifty is petrifying. A friend of mine said you can see the end 50s and then 60s and after 70. Everyday is a bonus. My father died at 71, my grandfather died at 41 so at some point I think you can sit back and you say it’s been a hell of a ride. I’m quite happy with how it’s gone and it shouldn’t be that dissatisfaction, that ‘I didn’t do anything’. Mid-life crisis is not happening because obviously I have done stuff, so I can’t complain," Saif told.

Speaking of growing old, Saif said he has inherited his mother, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore's genes and might be able to fool people by looking younger than his real age. "So, I’m just relieved my mother looks young and looked young and I feel I have inherited her genes, so I might be able to fool people into looking 50 when I’m 60," the actor said.

Saif recently announced that he will be penning his autobiography which will be published next year. The actor is expecting his second child with Kareena Kapoor Khan. It will be his fourth child as he shares Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan with ex-wife Amrita Singh and has Taimur Ali Khan with Kareena.
