New Delhi, Feb 27 (IANS) When Saif Ali Khan entered Bollywood in 1993 as a 23-year-old, his claim to fame was being veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and legendary cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi's son. It didn't help matters that his debut film "Parampara" failed to ignite the screens despite the presence of Aamir Khan along with stalwarts Vinod Khanna and Sunil Dutt, and despite being directed by Yash Chopra. To make matters worse, when he tried going solo as a hero in his second release with Umesh Mehra's "Aashik Aawara", the outcome was a disaster. The audience wrote him off as a misfit in Bollywood, who could neither act nor fight nor dance on screen.
