Saif Ali Khan, who played the villain in the film Tanhaji, has now forgotten the film role he did. In an interview with the left-wing film critic Anupama Chopra, the Pataudi Nawab Saif Ali Khan said something against the glorious history of Hindus depicted in the film, that the history shown in the film is not true as 'India' was not a concept before the arrival of the British. Not only he regretted about playing the rule of Muslim plunderer. In this interview, he was asked about the political angle of the film.
Apparently the interview was scripted and any internet user Indian would be seeing Saif Ali Khan's gimmick getting exposed. Either he is a very intelligent person or he did not really know what the film is about, ie he is either immature or very intelligent.
After all, why not talk about Saif's grandfather, Iftikar Ali Khan Pataudi? After all, let us talk about the cruel founder of Pakistan, Mohammad Ali Jinnah because Saif's great-grandfather Hamidullah Khan was the one who wrote the letter to him.
It is clear that Saif Ali Khan is not a 'history buff' and has said so only because of his addiction to being trending. Saif's ended career was brought to life by the film Tanhaji and he raised controversy instead of paying his favor.
We cannot forget that Hamidullah Ali Khan, the Nawab of the princely state of Bhopal in the British era, had written to the founder of Pakistan, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, through a letter of promise that he wanted to go to Pakistan. Just as the Nizam of Hyderabad wanted.
Now, who will not understand that Saif Ali Khan's family came from Afghanistan in the 15th century and his hobbies are such that he married Amrita Singh, ten years older and then left her just to marry 10 years younger Kareena Kapoor who got in his love trap very easily.
The date was 2 August 1947, the great-grandfather of Saif Ali Khan, the Nawab of Bhopal wrote a letter to Jinnah. He clearly states that he is a staunch supporter of Pakistan and wanted to merge Bhopal with Pakistan because 80 percent of the Hindus are a danger and he cannot follow Islam.
Secularism was a mask for this Nawabi family since independence. Still, we tolerated him and made him Padmashree awardee and he has the shameless to audacity to name his son Taimur who was a killer of humanity around the world. Saif Ali Khan, you forget your father and grandfather but we will remember and make others know it too.
