From his signature step in the 90s hit song Ole Ole to Sartaj Singh from Sacred Games, every time we see Saif Ali Khan on the screen, he makes our heart skip a beat with his charm and royal personality. Though he might not be enlisted among the three Khans of Bollywood, the Nawab of Pataudi surely took stardom to a whole new level with his widely-appreciated performances.

On August 16, 2018, Saif Ali Khan turned 48, and his darling and stunning wife, Kareena Kapoor Khan hosted a close-knit birthday bash for him. Saif Ali Khan’s children from his first marriage, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan, sister-in-law, Karisma Kapoor, sister and brother-in-law Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu were present at the bash to make it a memorable one for Saif. Karisma, Soha and Sara took to their Instagram to share the inside pictures from the midnight bash.
While Karisma shared a picture with Saif and Kareena, and also a cute Boomerang video, she captioned them as, “Happy birthday saifu! #birthdaytime #family #friends #love #letscelebrate #happybirthday”. On the other hand, Soha shared a group picture and captioned it, “Happy birthday!!”. Kareena, as usual, looked smoking hot in a black lace top and grey flared pants, the birthday boy Saif kept it simple with a white kurta-pyjama and a red bandana tied on his head. Saif posed with children Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan for the paparazzi. Check out all the birthday pictures here:
Are you all wondering where the two little munchkins of the Pataudi family, Taimur Ali Khan and Inaaya Naumi Kemmu are? Well, since this was a midnight birthday bash for Saif Ali Khan, the kids were past their bedtime, so they had to miss the party. But we’re sure the little ones will have a blast with the birthday boy today! And as we missed Taimur and Inaaya in the party, who would surely be the limelight of the bash had they been there, one thing that caught our attention was Saif’s birthday cake.

Didn’t your mouth water with molten chocolate garnish, KitKats, chocolate wafer decorations and all sorts of chocolate candies on Saif’s birthday cake? It was written, “We Love You Saifu” on the cake. Check out the close-up picture of the cake here:
This is after a long time when we saw Kareena Kapoor Khan with her step-kids, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan. Earlier they were snapped together at Soha Ali Khan’s baby shower. Kareena shares a great camaraderie with Sara and Ibrahim and when asked about Sara’s Bollywood debut, Kareena stated, "I am sure she is going to be supremely talented. She has it in her genes. She is looking amazing and gorgeous and I truly believe that with her beauty and talent she is going to rock the industry." She further added, "I am delighted because I think Sara is gorgeous. She is a deadly combination of beauty and brains. We (Saif and I) are excited about her; she is such a brave girl. I am confident that she is going to make a wonderful actor."
On her relationship with Sara, Kareena was quoted as saying, "We're like best friends. Saif refuses to come out with us. She's my bar hopping partner. I enjoy my equation with her." She further continued, "It's pretty amazing, they have a wonderful mother. They are the most well-brought-up children. I always remember Sara standing up and doing adab. Both Sara and Ibrahim are like that. I am like a friend for them. At times me and Sara chat over a glass of champagne. That's the way Saif wanted and that's the way I wanted it. Whenever she wants to call me she does at time when Saif isn't around and she doesn't want to talk to him. She talks to me.”
When Sara and Ibrahim missed Taimur’s first birthday bash, there were speculations of some problem between them. But a source cleared such reports and was quoted as saying, “Both Saif and Sara are close to Kareena and are often seen partying with Saif and Kareena at their Bandra home, so when Sara and Ibrahim didn’t attend the birthday bash in Pataudi, it took many in B-Town by surprise. Both were spotted at their gyms the whole of last week as they didn’t fly down to Pataudi. But before people start thinking there’s a rift between the brother-sister duo and Saif and Kareena, they will be wrong. Fact is, Sara was prepping with the Kedarnath crew as she has been continuously shooting for the film for over two weeks now. While Taimur’s birthday was on December 20, her schedule was for the next few days after that and her director had wanted Sara to stay back for some workshops. It's a challenging film and Sara is completely focusing on her debut film now.” (Also Read: Unseen Pic Of Saif Ali Khan And Kareena Kapoor Khan's Wedding With Sara Ali Khan And Ibrahim Khan)
The source further quoted to a media portal, “Ibrahim is in town on his Christmas vacay as he’s been pursuing further studies in London and he too decided to stay back with his sister in Mumbai as they are very close and spend some time with her. Both Sara and her brother are very close to Saif and Kareena and adore Taimur so if they skipped the bash at Pataudi there is nothing more to read into it.”
We wish you a very happy birthday Saif Ali Khan. Hope you have a fantastic year ahead!
