In a recent chat with an Indian daily, Saif Ali Khan opened up about the difference between raising his kids Taimur, Sara and Ibrahim. The Jawaani Jaaneman actor mentioned that when he was bringing up Sara and Ibrahim Ali Khan, he was a bit more selfish as he was trying to work on building a career. On the other hand, Saif Ali Khan mentioned that while bringing up Taimur, he is much more patient. But, the Tanhaji actor also mentioned that no child of his can replace the other and neither can he differentiate between either of his children.
“The difference, I suppose, is that I’m a little more patient now, whereas when Sara and Ibrahim were young, I was busy trying to build my career. And since I didn’t really know what I wanted, I was a bit more selfish when it came to giving them more time,” he said. He went on to add, “I’m still a bit selfish with my time, but I’m much more patient than I was. When we’re in London, we go to my friend Salim’s house. Everyone’s around, including the kids, and I can just sit and watch them run around.”
On differentiating between Taimur, Sara and Ibrahim, Saif said, “I sometimes call Taimur Ibrahim or Sara; love is a funny thing with your children because, on one hand you can’t differentiate between them and on the other, you can’t replace one with the other.”
