Saif has stars on candid camera!
One would never have guessed how passionate Saif Ali Khan is about photography till one saw his office walls. The actor has a rare collection of black and white pictures shot for his own collection by his friend-cum-personal photographer Joy Dutta.
Saif says the idea to have personal photographs taken in between shoots came to him from his mother, Sharmila Tagore, who also had a penchant for rare personal pictures of interactions with her co-stars on the sets of her various films.
None of the personal shots have anything to do with the film shooting.
For eg, there are shots of Akshaye Khanna playing chess; and some rare pictures of Katrina Kaif on the sets of Race. There are early photos of Vidya Balan from Parineeta.
What is really beautiful about this photo collection is the fact that all shots are candid; and you can clearly see that Saif has a personal connect with each of these pictures.
"I don't want to ever give these photos for publication,"' says Saif. However he doesn't rule out the possibility of using them in his autobiography/biography some day in the future.
Talking of how photography is his deep passion, Saif confesses that he often spends his evenings with Joy discussing the latest camera equipment and talking of the various innovations in photography.
He wants Joy to continue shooting his personal collection of photos, maintaining a common thread so if and when he uses the collection, it looks orderly and perfect.
On the side table, he also has a black and white photo of his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor who is dressed in a sari and definitely looks like royalty.
"I intend to get a silver frame for this photograph,'' says Saif and he is somewhere sure that if the book doesn't happen, all these pictures may adorn the walls of his family home in Pataudi.
