Saif Ali Khan’s younger sister feels that current pool of actors in Bollywood are not as good looking as those of bygone years.

When asked to express her views on Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who will turn 50 on December 27, Soha Ali Khan shared that she found the actor ‘handsome’ and ‘unique’.

Soha’s professional clash with husband?

“I have always loved watching Salman Khan’s movies. Maine Pyar Kiya was his first movie I saw while growing up and I thought ‘he is a handsome Indian actor’. Even today, years later, he is just as handsome and I think he is very unique and special.


“We need more handsome Indian male actors. There are very few,” said the actress, who will next be seen opposite Sunny Deol in Ghayal Once Again.

When asked about her own brother, Soha replied, “He is, of course, very handsome. My most favourite role of his is Langda Tyagi in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Omkara.”

She further said that Saif teaming up again with Vishal for Rangoon “is something that is very exciting for all of us”.

Rangoon also stars Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor.

    Your comment is bordering on stupidity…India had a long list of handsome actors…among the veteras there were Dilip Kumar..Devanand…Dharmendra…then later Sanjay Khan…and then…Salman…John Abraham…Rhitik Roshan….these are the few names…and mix of Hindu and Muslim…Recommend

    Yes, we need “handsome” actors in their own right and who do not resort to cosmetic surgery or other artificial interventions; compare Salman Khan photos when he first came on the silverscreen with now.. Same for a number of others ie Shahid KapoorRecommend
