Bollywood heartthrob Saif Ali Khan may be playing a casanova in his latest film Love Aaj Kal but the actor says that he tries his best to be an ideal role model for his children.

The actor who has two children with ex-wife Amrita Singh and is currently dating Kambakkht Ishq star Kareena Kapoor says that he tries his best to shield his children from the media frenzy surrounding his life.

"He copies what I do, so I have to be careful with my actions. I don't want to be a bad role model but ultimately the relationship between us is friendly. I want to keep him away from the media as much as possible," says Saif, who is currently in the city promoting Love Aaj Kal.

The 38-year-old star said that his relationship with his son Ibrahim is completely different from the equation he shared with his father, cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.

"My relation with my son is not like my relation with my father as there was gap in our relation when I was younger, but I am more friendly with my son," he said.

The actor who is touring the country promoting his debut home production Love Aaj Kal said that he decided to become a producer because he wanted more creative involvement in the process of filmmaking.

"Job of an actor is simpler, just finish the shooting and go home, but I wanted to have more creative share of film and wanted to learn more about the industry so entered the production," Saif said.
