Saif Ali Khan says turning 50 is petrifying: ‘I’m just relieved my mother looks young, I feel I have inherited her genes’
Saif Ali Khan has turned 50 years old but says that he is not feeling any ‘mid-life crisis’. The actor, in a conversation with Neha Dhupia on her podcast No Filter Neha, said he feels he has done enough in his life.
Calling 50s ‘petrifying’, Saif said ‘every year is a bonus’. “Fifty is petrifying. A friend of mine said you can see the end 50s and then 60s and after 70. Everyday is a bonus. My father died at 71, my grandfather died at 41 so at some point I think you can sit back and you say it’s been a hell of a ride. I’m quite happy with how it’s gone and it shouldn’t be that dissatisfaction, that ‘I didn’t do anything’. Mid-life crisis is not happening because obviously I have done stuff, so I can’t complain,” he said.
Saif, however, is quite grateful of his mother, veteran actor Sharmila Tagore’s genes that he has inherited. “So,I’m just relieved my mother looks young and looked young and I feel I have inherited her genes, so I might be able to fool people into looking 50 when I’m 60,” he said.
