Saif Ali Khan quotes

I love waking up in the morning, taking a deep breath, reading the newspaper and going to the gym - as opposed to carrying a hangover right until lunch. That's horrible. It is nice to let off steam once in a while, but I find myself less involved with people in that sense.

I have become an anti-drinking, anti-smoking agent.
