Saif Ali Khan is known for having a life of luxury and also one that has had its share of controversy but rarely has it been known of what he values until recently.
The Home Ministry of India recently released a statement that it was not looking to take away his Padma Shri award despite the fact that Mumbai courts are preparing to charge him for assaulting an NRI businessman at a city hotel. For the celebrated actor/producer this would have been a very embarrassing situation if the Home Ministry had not made such a statement and for the moment represents a significant public relations win.
The second win for Saif Ali Khan is the news that his beautiful wife, actress Kareena Kapoor, has planned a lavish birthday party for her husband at 600 year old Winchester College in Hampshire, England. He is filming the movie Phantom in London and so to celebrate his big day she has organized a great party but that is not all she has in store for him.
After the birthday party she and her husband will fly off to Italy to enjoy some time together which for him will probably be a welcome respite from the media speculation over whether his Padma Shir honour was at risk at being taken away from him.
The actor is known for being one of the most talented and accomplished actors but the controversy over his physical assault of the Indian businessman at the Wasabi restaurant in Mumbai is one that is causing some debate among Bollywood fans on social media and has some entertainment observers wondering if it will impact him at the box office.
As such, the statement from the Home Ministry of India and his wife's birthday plans for him represent two major wins Saif Ali Khan that this talented but controversial actor will likely remember for a long time.
