Recently, the actor opened up about his boys following his footsteps.
Saif Ali Khan made an appearance in Jacqueline Fernandez and Amanda Cerny’s podcast where he talked at lengths about his family’s connection with art. He revealed that his mother, Sharmila Tagore was Satyajit Ray’s muse and started working at the age of 16.

My daughter, my elder son wants to be an actor, and I think Taimur will be an actor for sure, he’s entertaining us already.”
In an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, Saif Ali Khan had opened up about the speculations of him launching his son, Ibrahim Ali Khan and had stated, “I don’t know if I will launch him. It’s an option and films are certainly a viable career choice for him. He’s sporty and likes the idea of being in the movies rather than pursuing an academic job. No one in the family, with the exception of his sister (Sara Ali Khan), have been interested in the latter anyway.” When asked what would be the one advice that he would give Ibrahim if he wishes to make a career in Bollywood, Saif had retorted that he would ask him to be prepared and choose his films carefully.
