Actor Saif Ali Khan.
Saif Ali Khan was awarded the Padma Shri, the country’s fourth-highest civilian honor in 2010. After getting Padma Shri, Saif was getting congratulations on one side and on the other side he was also accused of buying the award.
Saif Ali Khan was seen in Arbaaz Khan’s chat show. Here he talked about his career, controversies, from the child to the Padma award. Let me tell you that Saif is not on social media, so Arbaaz was teaching him the comments written on social media. In one post, Saif wrote about, ‘Do Kauri’s thug who bought the Padma Shri Award.’ Responding to this, Saif said, ‘I am not a thief of two crores. And as far as buying the Padma Shri award is concerned, I think it is not possible. Bribing the Government of India is something out of my hands. You should ask senior people about this.
During the show, Saif also said about returning the Padma Shri award, in which Saif further said, ‘I did not want to take that award. There are many people in the industry who deserve this award more than me. There are many senior actors who have not received this honor. It was very embarrassing for me. So I wanted to return it. But my father told me that he does not think I am in a position to say no to the Government of India. I said okay and gladly took the award. I hope that in the coming times, when people look back, they should realize that it should be respected for the work that this man has done. Questions were also raised. To which, Saif says that people think that my son’s name is after the Turkish Mongolian Timur, but this is wrong. My son’s name is Timur, not Timur, and this name means iron, meaning that this name is a symbol of strength. There is a big difference between the words of both Timur and Timur.
