Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan is happily married and to a woman 10 years younger than him. And the actor feels it’s when you are married to a sexy and beautiful woman, there will be no need to look at another woman and say ‘she hot’.
In a candid interview with Filmfare, the actor spoke his heart out. When asked if it was ok for older men to marry younger women, he replied: “Yeah, I definitely recommend it. It’s also nice to be married to someone who’s fun, beautiful and non-judgemental. All three things.”
“It’s not good to be married and then look at another woman and say she’s hot. It’s better to have a hot and sexy wife. Never have room for regret and never say, ‘Oh, I wish I was married to a beautiful girl.”
The 43-year-old feels he and Kareena share just the right amount of similarities and that one tends to get fed up if there are too many similar qualities.
Saif Ali Khan revealed that over the years he has has changed drastically. “At 40, suddenly, it all comes together. That’s when you realise no more excuses now. You try and be the best you can be. You start getting interested in other things apart from sex, booze and rock-n-roll,” he said.
And his views on fidelity, “After 40, when sex stops being the most important thing in your life, you have a chance at building something good. And you don’t want to go mess it up because you’ve taken a long time to build a safe zone. (Laughs) But when you’are 20, 25 or 30…no chance dude.”
Talking about his daughter Sara from his first wife, Saif said he has never been a overprotective dad, and that Kareena and Sara are very friendly, they do a lot of stuff together and that Sara made herself the soul of his and Kareena’s wedding.
He said, “There are fears about heartbreaks and there are fears about pregnancy. But more so, only if your children are irresponsible, because then you know your kids can hurt themselves. I was irresponsible. I couldn’t be bothered. I always felt it was someone else’s problem to sort me out. Nothing ever mattered to me. But it matters to Sara.”
“So she’ll party till 5 a.m. at our wedding. But she’ll go to school at 7 a.m. in a rickshaw because she wants to give her exam. She’s driven. Even if she does vodka shots, it’ll be on a holiday. She knows her priorities. She knows what she is doing more than we do. I am not overprotective about her,” he added.
It indeed is a very candid interview, that too from Saif.
