Saif Ali Khan, who is currently vacationing in Tuscany with wife Kareena Kapoor Khan and son Taimur, in an interview to a leading daily, spoke about the hectic lives of actors. He told that he feels uncomfortable when he doesn't get time to spend with his son. Saif, during the chat also emphasized on the necessity to respect family space.
“When I come home after work and find Taimur sleeping, I feel bad. We shoot long hours, but if I haven’t packed up even after 8 pm, I feel uncomfortable because it means taking away time from my son. In my growing-up years, my parents taught me about the importance of respecting family space. My father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) was a cricketer and mother (Sharmila Tagore) is an actress, and they both had hectic schedules. However, we learnt that it is important to talk about other things, too, at home and that’s how life becomes beautiful,” Saif quoted.

Saif further added that fans and audience believe actors enjoy a relaxed schedule, which in reality isn't true. He said, having a glamorous life comes with their own set of shortcomings. He also told that if one is unable to spend time with their family and loved ones, 'it is really a waste'. “Behind our outwardly glamorous lives, there is a long list of missed birthdays, anniversaries, and new year holidays. In that sense, working on TV is harder and more intense than doing a film. Life goes on pretty fast and time flies. And I really feel that if you can’t spend time with family and loved ones it is really a waste,” Saif told the daily.
Workwise, Saif will be starting the shoot of Jawaani Janeman. He will be seen in Laal Kaptaan.
