In August 2020, Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan announced that he is in the process of writing his as-yet-untitled autobiography, which will release in the year 2021. Subsequently, people online trolled him calling it a ‘nepotistic read’ in the wake of his previous statement in which he called himself a ‘victim of nepotism’.

As per a report in HT, Saif Ali Khan recently revealed that he is thinking of backing out of the book deal. He explained that he is not prepared for the ‘abuse’ that he would receive for being honest with his story. He even said that he hasn’t told his publishers yet of him having second thoughts.

Saif said, “Someone asked me to do a book, and I might chicken out, because it’s too much work to do it properly, and then you have to be very honest as well, which probably will disturb quite a few people. Honestly, I don’t know if I am prepared to put myself through the 100% abuse that’s going to come my way.”

He continued, “I’m really sorry to say it, I’m going to say it, I don’t think the general audience — and not just general — but there will be a section of the audience that’s so negative in India that I don’t want to share my life and talk about things…Maybe I’ll do it, maybe I won’t.”

“When I was walking today, part of the book should describe what I was feeling and thinking looking at these trees and thinking about how lucky we are to be shooting in Himachal, and it’s not really,” he concluded.

Saif also opened up about his mother Sharmila Tagore’s side of the family. He talked about how they are related to Bengali poet and writer Rabindranath Tagore, as well as a lot of other painters and artists. He said, “My mother’s been doing films since she was 16. She worked with Satyajit Ray a lot and did about four or five movies with him. She was his muse, and he thought of her as the ultimate female representation of his art.”

He also expressed his desire for all his children to join the Bollywood film industry calling it “the best place to work”.
