Saif Ali Khan shifts loyalties from cricket to soccer
New Delhi: He may have been an ardent cricket fan but Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan has now shifted his loyalties to soccer after an overdose of the gentleman`s game.
The 39-year-old actor has cricket in his genes with both his father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and grand father Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi being former Indian team captains.
But the star, seems to have got bored of the game now. "Cricket is happening 365 days. I am more interested in soccer now. The football world cup is just a month away and I am looking forward to it," Saif said.
When asked what did he have to say about India`s dismal performance from from T20 World Cup 2010, Saif refused to comment and said, "I don`t think I am the right person to
say any thing on that."
The actor is all set to begin shooting on his second home production `Agent Vinod` this May and hopes to release it in March next year.
He pairs with girlfriend actress Kareena Kapoor in the movie, the couple`s third after `Tashan` and `Kurbaan`.
"We will begin the shooting in May and are planning to release it in March next year," Saif said.
Directed by Sriram Raghavan, the thriller will be shot in Europe, Delhi, Morocco and the pre-climax in Pakistan.
The film is Khan`s second home production after Imtiaz Ali directed `Love Aaj Kal`.
