This week for our Flashback Friday we decided to dig in interviews from the archives when the superstars of today were unabashed and unguarded about talking their hearts out, the time when they spoke uninterrupted about everything and anything including SEX, which continues to remain a sensitive topic in our country.
Saif Ali Khan, who was quite a Nawab in his initial days too, in a 90s interview to a magazine spoke about having seen "blue films" and about refraining from casual sex post marriage.
In the interview, he is quoted saying, "Sex has its relevance, but it isn't anything novel. It's been so since Eve tempted Adam. Sex has been one of the first forms of communications between a man and a woman. My physical need is as important as my emotional need. I can't separate them although there have been times when my emotions have been least involved when I've been with a woman."
He further added, "The woman has always known the equation. I've never said, 'I Love You' to a woman just to get her into my bed. I have ever had to read sex manuals to learn the techniques. My technique is my own. I have always treated my woman with respect. Today, I wouldn't respond to a woman who came on to me. I'm a married man. I wouldn't do anything to hurt my wife. I'd smile and say 'sorry ma'am, wrong number.' I've grown up abroad and lived on my own. I've seen blue films and live shows. The average Indian male is not as exposed to sex as the average guy abroad. That's why the Indian male is frustrated."
Saif at his candid best indeed!
We definitely do wish our stars could be more free and forthcoming in interviews today just like times bygones.
