Wasn’t gifted to be cricketer: Saif Ali Khan
Describing himself as a ‘late bloomer’, Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan on Tuesday said he failed to follow his father Mansoor Ali Khan’s footsteps to become a cricketer as he was not gifted to be a sportsperson. “I am a late bloomer. I sort of came into my own in my 30s, which I think was far too late for a cricketing career. I played school cricket. But I don’t think I have a god’s gift kind of natural genius that my father had or all our players have,” said Saif, who is here for the IPL gala opening ceremony. “It’s a gift which you can spot early on. By the time you are 10 or 11, people can see the genius in you. My gifts lie in other areas,” said the national award winning actor.
