New Delhi: Actor-producer Saif Ali Khan, who loves reading, will now be donning the hat of an author. Saif will open up about “family, home, successes and failures” in an autobiography that is slated to hit the shelves in October, 2021, publisher HarperCollins India announced on Tuesday.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the information about the autobiography.

“#SaifAliKhan to pen autobiography… The actor will open up about family, home, his successes and failures, his influences and inspirations and, of course, films,” tweeted Adarsh.

Diya Kar, publisher, HarperCollins India, said it would be a treat to publish the 50-year-old actor’s autobiography.

“Saif Ali Khan is one of India’s most versatile actors. Who can forget LangdaTyagi? Not one to crave the limelight, there’s much more to Khan than meets the eye. This book will be a treat to publish and we couldn’t be happier that he’s chosen HarperCollins,” she said.

The publisher said the autobiography will be a no-holds-barred account with Saif, in his signature style laced with wit and humour, opening up about family, home, successes, failures, his influences, inspirations and cinema. “So many things have changed and will be lost with time if we don’t record them.

It would be nice to look back; to remember and to record. It has been funny and moving, and I must say, this is quite a selfish endeavour. I do hope others enjoy the book, too, of course, Saif said in the statement. Bushra Ahmed, commissioning editor, HarperCollins India, said the autobiography will be reflective, cheeky, and fun.

Earlier this month, Saif announced in a joint statement with wife Kareena Kapoor Khan that they are expecting their second child together. They already have a son, Taimur, who will turn four in December. “We are very pleased to announce that we are expecting an addition to our family! Thank you to all our well wishers for all their love and support,” Saif and Kareena’s statement read.
