Even though he is one of the youngest actors to have been honoured with Padma Shri, Saif Ali Khan is pretty low key about the entire affair. He is accepting the title with all humility but still he truly believes that there are many more people out there who truly deserved it more than him. Also, he feels that despite the title, it won't have much bearing amongst the industry folks.

'Honestly speaking, I feel really humbled and undeserving on being awarded the Padma Shri. It isn't something that I had asked for and since Govt. of India has done this for me, all I can do is to deliver my best and live up to it', said Saif Ali Khan a few days after the feeling sunk in.

In the past, some of the biggest names in the field of entertainment who have been conferred with such honour are veterans like Amitabh Bachchan (Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan), Rajnikanth (Padma Bhushan) and Kamal Hassan (Padma Shri). This year, Aamir Khan has joined the elite list as well with a Padma Bhushan against his name.

'Each of the names that you mention are so distinguished and they truly deserve a National honour at this level', says Saif, 'This is why I feel a little low key because in current times, someone like Aamir Khan truly deserves a Padma Bhushan. May be I wasn't really worthy of it. There are many people who deserve it much more me. I associate this award with senior people who have achieved much more than me in their career. This is why I feel a little strange though perhaps 10 years down the line when I look back at it, all of this may seem a lot more natural.'
