Sridevi and Saif Ali Khan: Happy Birthday Saifoo!!

Sridevi, 31, and Saif Ali Khan, 24: Happy Birthday Saifoo!

Saif Ali Khan turns 52 today. 

TBT to this explosive cover shoot and series shot exclusively for Filmfare back in the day. This was such a talked about shoot and series of pics. Sridevi was just seven years older than Saif - but typical of Bollywood, they made a huge hullaballoo about it. - and some were daft enough to suggest Sridevi play Saif's mother in a film! Simpler times. Stupider times. In fact, it hasn't changed that much now either... 

You can read about what happened during that momentous day, when newcomer Saif met screen Queen Sridevi here - see the gallery of images and entire series of amazing pics shot by Rakesh Shreshta here and here

What Saif Ali Khan said about Sridevi here. Fun fact, the entire family is a fan of Sridevi; from Sharmila Tagore, Amrita Singh, Saif, Kareena Kapoor Khan to Sara Ali Khan!
