5. I Didn’t Want to Accept the Padma Shri: Saif Ali Khan
Sacred Games star Saif Ali Khan, who received India's fourth highest civilian award the Padma Shri in 2010, says he was hesitant to accept and even wanted to return it.
On a recent episode of Arbaaz Khan's chat show Pinch, Saif was taken through some ‘mean tweets’ about him.
One of them read: “This two bit thug who bought a Padma Shri, named his son Taimur and beat up some people in a restaurant. How the hell did he get a role in ‘Sacred Games’? He can hardly act.”
Saif reacted to the tweet by being brutally honest. “Two bit thug, I’m not... Bought a Padma Shri is also not possible. It is beyond me to bribe the Indian government... But I thought I don’t want to accept it. There are so many senior actors in the industry who deserved it even more than me, and had not gotten one...and it was very embarrassing. And of course, there are some people who have it, I feel deserve it less than me also.”
