Mumbai: Saif Ali Khan is not interested in talking tattoos or opening up about his love life. However, if it’s music, then the chote nawab has lots to say. And here’s what Indian rock and roll band Parikrama's keyboardist Subir Malik had to say about the actor performing with the group. “He is a better actor than a musician.” Well that's the verdict from the Parikrama, but the band is not complaining either, considering the kind of publicity Saif is bringing for the band's pan India tour. Saif who strummed popular tunes of bands like AC/DC and Doors in Bangalore with Parikrama will repeat the act in Mumbai on January 20. Talking about his passion for the guitar, Saif says, it goes back to his days in school. “I listened to my seniors in school. That’s the first time I heard rock music and fell in love with it,” he says. Music apart, ask Saif about showing off his newly acquired tattoo dedicated to ladylove Kareena Kapoor and pat comes the response. "I'm not going hold it up like a flag,” he retorts. But a peek we did manage to get. So, is he taking his rock star image too seriously? First the music, and then the tattoo? To which Saif says, “Some actions are self explanatory.” But Kareena will not turn up to cheer while Saif takes on the crowd because “she is not in town. She is in Europe shooting,” Saif confirms. And if you are bigger fans of Parikrama than of Saif and his music, then perhaps you might be interested in knowing that the band will be the opening act for the Iron Maiden concert in Mumbai on February 1.
