Biography
A performer who attained a status as one of the most popular and widely sought-after Hindi-language stars during the 1990s and 2000s, Saif Ali Khan headlined dozens of films in his native India that turned him into a local sex symbol and pop-culture icon. The majority of Khan's features fit the traditional Bollywood mold by traversing the genre boundaries of comedy, drama, musical, and romance, and by each running between two and three hours. In early years, Khan's audience and exposure remained confined to India, though in a short time American Bollywood fans of course gained definitive awareness of his work and his popularity spread -- an occurrence fueled by the release of such international crossover hits as Salaam Namaste (2005) and Om Shanti Om (2007). In 2008, Khan did a bit of uncharacteristic work by providing a voice for the family-oriented, Hindi-language animated comedy Roadside Romeo.
