B-town is filled with father-son duos, who share a striking resemblance with each other, and it won't be wrong to say that the handsome dads of Bollywood have passed on their good-looking genes to their sons. There is no denying the fact that the best doppelgangers of these celebrities are none other than their offspring. Saif Ali Khan and his two sons, Ibrahim Ali Khan and Taimur Ali Khan are perfect examples of the same. The 20-year-old Ibrahim is a doppelganger of Saif and with his chiselled body and impressive personality, his pictures make us wonder if it’s Saif or Ibrahim. Ibrahim reminds us of Saif from his early days in Bollywood.
Last year, in March 2020, Ibrahim Ali Khan had posted a picture with his 'old man', Saif Ali Khan. In the picture, Saif had looked suave in a white shirt, black blazer and blue denim, while on the other hand, Ibrahim melted our hearts with his handsomeness in a black shirt, navy blue blazer and stripped black-and-white pants. More than their looks, it was Saif and Ibrahim's striking resemblance that caught everyone's attention. Ibrahim had captioned the picture as “Just me and the old man.”
If a young Ibrahim Ali Khan reminds us of Saif Ali Khan from his early Bollywood days, then the childhood version of Mr Khan reminds us of his younger son, Taimur Ali Khan. Saif's sister, Saba Ali Khan's Instagram profile is a treasure of Pataudi family's photo archives as she often treats her fans with sneak-peeks into the lives of Pataudis through photographs. Saba posted a throwback picture of her abba, late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, ammi, Sharmila Tagore and bhaijaan, Saif Ali Khan. In the childhood picture of Saif, he could be seen laughing his heart out watching his ammi as his abba held him in his arms. Saba captioned her post as " CHILDHOOD Saga... Bhaijàan with parents #amma #abba #parents #baby #saifalikhanpataudi #familylove #oldisgold #goodtimes #childhood #oldphoto #classic #memoriesforlife #monday #mood #shared #picoftheday."
To mark the 80th birth anniversary of late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, his eldest daughter, Saba Ali Khan had posted a throwback black-and-white picture from the field and captioned it as “We miss u....in my heart today and ALWAYS #tribute #dad #abba #mansuralikhan #pataudi #legend #testcricket #captain #late #nawab #pataudi #love #respect #gentleman #kindsoul #thebest.” She had also posted a picture in which she had lit two candles in front of his photo frame at her home. Saba had captioned the picture as “Miss u A LOT. 80th birthday today.” Kareena Kapoor Khan had posted a lovely picture of the father-son duo, late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and Saif Ali Khan from the latter's childhood. In the picture, we noticed a glimpse of Ibrahim Ali Khan in his abba, Saif.
Kareena Kapoor Khan shares a warm bond with her hubby, Saif Ali Khan’s children, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan. Their son, Taimur Ali Khan too, is showered with immense love and pampering from his half-siblings, Sara and Ibrahim. In fact, around mid-December, Kareena had posted a loved-up picture of her ‘favourite boys’, Saif, Ibrahim and Taimur. For the picture, while Saif and Taimur had twinned in white, Ibrahim had picked a grey-coloured t-shirt. And Kareena had captioned the post as “Favourite boys! #FatherAndSons.”
On Saif Ali Khan’s 50th birthday, Sara Ali Khan had posted an array of pictures with her abba, which reflects their bond in her journey from a newborn to now. Sara had captioned them as “Happy happy happy Birthday to my Abba”. Ibrahim Ali Khan had also posted a childhood picture with his abba, Saif and had written, “Happy Birthday Dad”. Kareena Kapoor Khan had posted a video capturing 50 years of her husband’s life and it included the birth of the three pieces of his heart, Sara, Ibrahim and Taimur. Even Saif's birthday cake had a picture of him with his three bundles of joy.
All we can say in the end is, like father, like son!
