Saif Ali Khan the newest father in B-Town to the newest celeb baby, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi has expressed his desire to make a biopic based on his father, late cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.
In an interview with a leading daily he said, “I would love to (make a biopic). He is a huge icon in my mind. He was a stylish person – with his body language, the way he spoke, his attitude, and even the way he smoked his cigarettes. You can’t come close (to him). It’s like making a film on Bruce Lee. Who is going to copy his body language? That is my main concern. Amma (Sharmila Tagore) feels Ranbir (Kapoor) can. Yes, he has a long face like my father but I don’t think he likes cricket. However, it will be great (to see a film on him). It will be a great story about bringing India together.”
When asked him about why hasn’t he executed his desire to make the biopic. He quoted, “I think it’s because of my personal affection towards him, and also not wanting to make a bad film ever. Tab toh lag jayenge (it will get a lot of criticism). Who is making such mind-blowing films nowadays? You need somebody who really understands such stuff. It needs to be done at some point.”
The ‘Salam Namaste’ actor also spoke about whether he will be playing his father’s character or not, ro which he said “I don’t know, maybe. I am 46 and all his drama happened when he was in his 20s. So, there can be two actors (who can portray different stages of his life). It’s actually very interesting but I am scared of making a bad film.”
If the movie is ever made, We wonder which actress will play Sharmila Tagore in the film?
