It's close to a fortnight since the Padma Sri awards were announced and for all the controversies that it has managed to invoke this time around, the fact remains that all would be forgotten a few weeks down the line and the awardees would be happily living with the honour for the rest of their lives.

In this scenario, one wonders how would Saif Ali Khan want himself to be addressed in future. With a 'Nawab of Pataidi' tag already attached to him and now Padma Sri coming in; will it be a rather long screen title that we may see for him?

Smiles Saif, 'I can't take this title too seriously after all. Yes, it's a national honour and great recognition. Still, I don't think that while interacting with me, people in the industry would be reminded of this honour. Also, I don't think it is going to affect public perception about me. As for being 'Nawab of Pataudi', then well, it doesn't quite hold true since my father is the last to be carrying this title.'

Though he is happy about the Government of India recognizing his contribution to cinema, he cheekily adds that he is still waiting for some popular awards coming his way. 'I have never won a Filmfare or a Screen award for being the Best Actor. It is nice to see that Govt. believes otherwise. Now this is something that will always stay on in my mind. I have to keep doing good to great work and live up this recognition in my future choices and endeavour', he says.

Meanwhile, pre-production of AGENT VINOD is continuing on full swing and director Sriram Raghavan would soon be kick starting the shooting of the film after a couple of months.
