What is it with Saif Ali Khan? The moment he is conferred with some National Award, controversy erupts in its own way. Saif is in controversy these days because he has been awarded with Padma Shri by the Indian Government.
As soon as the award has been announced, critics have asked for the qualification and achievements of Saif for this honour. Some over enthusiasts have also taken over protest marches against Saif. There has been so much of drama over the awardees this time around with people like Sant Chatwal getting a PADMA Award but there were no protest marches as in case of Saif.
But why this much of antagonism over Saif. Even before Saif had this piquant situation when he was chosen as the National Best Actor for “HUM TUM.” Even then this was the situation.
May be Saif should avoid taking awards and honours for himself and limit himself to giving those away at a film function.
Honestly speaking, Saif still has a long way to go before becoming truly deserving for a National honour. Whether rigged or not, the truth is Saif is a Padma Shri now.
