Saif Ali Khan, who once showed interest in making a biopic on his late father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, says the cricket star was so handsome that nobody can play his role.

“It’s such a good story as he used to tell me such interesting things. But, we can’t make a Bollywood film because if we put a song in this, he would curse me for this. Nobody can do his acting and he was so handsome that nobody can play his role,” Saif said.

“I don’t have too much footage. I have pictures and if you look at his black and white footage, you will know why we are not making his film because he was so handsome,” he added.

The 44-year-old is currently busy promoting his forthcoming film Happy Ending.

Directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the film also features Govinda, Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey. It is slated for a November 20 release.
