Saif Ali Khan padma shri

Bollywood actor Nawab Saif Ali Khan was honoured by the Government of India with the Padma Shri in 2010. Now that there are two cases pending against the Nawab, he feels embarrassed to flaunt the Padma Shri title.

Now because of the pending cases against the actor, there have been demands of his title to be taken away.

In a recent interview with a leading daily Saif said, “My father thought for a second, then told me he didn’t think I could say ‘no’ to the Indian government. I wish I’d followed my instinct.”

On being asked about the recent demand to withdraw the honour, he agreed that there’s dissatisfaction over the decision, a feeling that it was a case of nepotism with the Congress government showering undue love on him. “I plead innocence on these counts but I’m embarrassed to flaunt the Padma Shri. I got a letter from the government that the positives outweight this negatives. I can argue that despite my family background, I made my way on my own, created an urban, multiplex hero, but that’s pathetic. I only accepted the honour when two-three names in the list of recipients caught my eye. I thought if the honour could be given to them, they could give it to me, too,” he reasoned.
