Saif Ali Khan is National Film Award winning Indian actor who stars in Bollywood films. He is the son of the Nawab of Pataudi, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, and the actress Sharmila Tagore. His sister is actress Soha Ali Khan.
Khan starred in many films since his debut in 1992 but many failed at the box office. However he gained acclaim and rose into prominence with his performance in Dil Chahta Hai (2001). The success of his following films put him among the most successful actors in the industry.Saif Ali Khan was born into the family of the Nawabs of Pataudi. His grandfather, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, was the Nawab of Pataudi as well as an accomplished cricketer who played for England and then for India as the captain of the team. His paternal grandmother was Sajida Sultan, Begum of Bhopal and his great-uncle was Nawabzada Sher Ali Khan Pataudi.
His father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, like Nawab of Pataudi Sr., was not only the Nawab of Pataudi but also a former captain of the Indian cricket team. His mother, Sharmila Tagore, is a Bengali Indian film actress., head of the Indian film censorship board and a relative of the Nobel laureate - Rabindranath Tagore .Saif is also distantly related to the late Nafisa Joseph through his mother.Khan has two sisters: Soha Ali Khan and Saba Ali Khan.
He followed in his father's footsteps by attending Winchester College, a famous independent school for boys in England.

Saif was meant to make his debut in Bekhudi (1992) opposite Kajol but the film took off without him.

He made his Bollywood debut in the 1992 film Parampara. For his next film Aashiq Awara (1993) he won the Filmfare Best Debut Award. His breakthrough role came in 1994 with Yeh Dillagi starring opposite Kajol and Akshay Kumar which was his first major hit. Khan went on to star in many films but they failed at the box office. He only had success with multi-starrer hits like Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1994), Kachche Dhaage (1999) and Hum Saath-Saath Hain: We Stand United (1999). After some box office failures he had a hit with the film Kya Kehna (2000).
His acting career, more or less, went through a relative slump until 2001, when he was cast in Farhan Akhtar's hit film, Dil Chahta Hai. He received much acclaim for his role as Sameer with critic Taran Adarsh calling it his career-best performance. The success of this film firmly established Saif as one of the industry's most bankable stars.

He has since had many box office successes such as Kal Ho Na Ho (2003), Hum Tum (2004)and Salaam Namaste (2005). He won lots of critical acclaim for his performance in a rare negative role for the film Ek Hasina Thi (2004) and for Parineeta (2005). His performance in Hum Tum won him the National Film Award for Best Actor.

In 2006 Khan played the lead role in the offbeat English-language film Being Cyrus and bagged enormous acclaim for his villainous role in the Indian adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello, Omkara. He won the Best Villain awards at all the major award ceremonies including the Star Screen Awards, Filmfare Awards and Zee Cine Awards.

Saif was part of a troupe that included Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Arjun Rampal and Priyanka Chopra, which went on the Temptations 2004 world tour. The tour was a huge international and commercial success.He also appeared along with various other Bollywood actors at the Closing Ceremony of the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, as part of a performance showcasing Indian culture along with Rani Mukerji, on behalf of the 2010 Commonwealth Games, to be held in Delhi.

His next film Eklavya: The Royal Guard saw him and his mother together for the second time since Aashiq Awara. Though it was a box-office disappointment his performance as Harshwardhan was praised and appreciated by the critics. His last release Tara Rum Pum did moderately at the box office and his performance was praised.
