Saif Ali Khan may not have delivered blockbusters consistently like Salman Khan or may not been active in social media like Akshay Kumar, but what makes him apart is his instinct to experiment with different varieties of roles.
Born to actress Sharmila Tagore and cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan made his acting debut with unsuccessful film Parampara but achieved success with Yeh Dillagi and Main Khiladi Tu Anari later. He faced lot of criticism for hair-style and not-so-convincing-hero-face and also had to go through career struggles with string of flops in mid of 1990’s. However, Saif rose to fame with Dil Chahta Hai and Kal Ho Naa Ho which proved his mettle as actor.
Let us check out five best performances of Saif Ali Khan that proves he is epitome of talent :-
Dil Chahta Hai (2001)
Dil Chahta Hai changed the career path of Saif Ali Khan. His new looks along with his wit and humor played a major part to the success of the comedy drama on friendship.
Kal Ho Na Ho (2003)

Hum Tum (2004)
