Saif Ali Khan, when he made his debut in 1992 with 'Parampara', was noticed only for his cascading dark brown hair, the mascara-ed eyelashes and that ear-to-ear grin. After scoring his first major hit in 1994 with 'Main Khiladi Tu Anari', he had to go through several years of decline in the 1990s. 'Dil Chahta Hai' (2001) changed it all. He won the National Film Award for Best Actor for his performance in 'Hum Tum' (2004). He then had his B.O. moment with 'Salaam Namaste' (2005)and 'Love Aaj Kal' (2009). Saif also starred in critically acclaimed movies such as 'Parineeta' (2005) and 'Omkara' (2006).
