‘I can take time off from work, it’s a privileged position,’ says Saif Ali Khan on taking a paternity leave after the birth of his fourth child


Saif Ali Khan is all set to become a father once again. Saif’s wife Kareena Kapoor Khan will soon be delivering the couple’s second child after their toddler son Taimur Ali Khan. This will be Saif’s fourth child as he has Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan with former wife Amrita Singh. This time round, Saif will once again take a paternity leave to spend time with his newborn baby.

In a recent interview, Saif spoke about the importance of paternity leave and how he has been taking it ever since his first child, Sara, was born. However, he agreed that one has to be in a privileged place to be able to take a leave on their child’s birth.

Speaking to the magazine, Saif said, “Who wants to work when you have a newborn at home! If you don’t see your children growing up, you’re making a mistake. And I can take time off from work—it’s a privileged position. Rather than follow a 9-to-5 routine, I live like an actor. Your dharma and approach to everything are based on your career."

Talking about how lucky he feels to have a family like his, he said, "I’m an actor…and I’m loving it! I like being with my family, travelling the world, drinking wine and watching my kids. Touchwood!” Kareena shared the cover of the magazine, featuring Saif, on Instagram and wrote, "The coolest husband ever."
