Actor Saif Ali Khan is away from his mother Sharmila Tagore amid the lockdown, which is not helped by her morbid thoughts.

Actor Saif Ali Khan is in self-isolation with actor wife Kareena Kapoor Khan and their son Taimur at their Mumbai residence. He is away from his mother and veteran actor Sharmila Tagore, who lives in Delhi. As if being apart from his mother wasn’t discomforting enough amid a pandemic lockdown, he says the things she has been saying lately have not helped calm his nerves either.

In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Saif talked in detail about his days in the lockdown and how he worries for his mother and sister Saba. “I do worry about my mother, but she is suddenly sounding extremely wise, saying she has had a full life and has no regrets. It’s scary, listening to such stuff,” he said. He added that Saba is miffed with him and that he misses seeing his other sister Soha.

“She believes we knew about this happening well in advance and kept the news from her. I’m also not getting to see my other sister (Soha) these days, but we call each other often. When on a voyage, you do cut off from everything and everyone,” he said.

In the interview, Saif compared the lockdown with a voyage on a 19th century ship. “You can see the land from afar but you are separated from it by an expanse of water,” he says. However, he agrees that technology has made keeping in touch with one’s friends and family much easier now.
