Hollywood star Natalie Portman threatens to sue Saif Ali Khan
Controversies and Saif Ali Khan have become synonymous. The actor has recently been in the eye of several controversies. The recent one though is not something rooted in Bollywood or India. It is directly rooted to Hollywood. It is great way of going international.
In a recent interview Saif had joked that he has signed in Hollywood Oscar award winning actress Natalie Portman for a romantic-comedy. That was on before 26thJuly. The joke didn’t go down too well with the Black Swan actress and her representative has slapped a legal notice on him, seeking an explanation. The actor tried to explain to the media that it was just a joke and people should not be too speculative over what’s next going to happen in his life.
Earlier in 2012 he was arrested for assaulting businessman Iqbal Sharma. Saif had visited his restaurant for partying and was asked by the manager to party quietly, which enraged him and he landed a blow which fractured the nose of Mr. Sharma. He was booked under IPC 325 but was later released on bail.
It is difficult to understand though, why he himself creates these speculations. His wedding with girlfriend Kareena Kapoor on October 11 has been shelved now. Whether it has been done knowingly or unknowingly to keep the interest of the media around the matter is not known.
He is also the co-accused in the Black Buck poaching case along with actor Salman Khan. It is an incident that occurred in 1998 during the shooting of Sooraj Barjatiya’s movie “Hum Saath Saath Hain”. The men along with the ladies Neelam, Tabu and Sonali Bendre went on a shooting spree and ended up killing endangered species of Black Buck and Chinkaras. The Rajasthan High court has once again initiated the case under the Wildlife Protection Act, which carries a three year jail term.
It is also rumored that the actor is irked with Arjun Rampal for the intimate scenes in the movie “Heroine”. Arjun said he thoroughly enjoyed those scenes with Saif’s fiancé Kareena Kapoor on the sets of ‘Heroine’.
He had some controversies in his early life too when after a raunchy romance with actress Amrita Singh, he married her in October 1991 at a very early age. The marriage lasted till 2004.
We just wish that
he concentrates on his films and nothing else.
