Saif Ali Khan recently made news for expressing his displeasure with the paparazzi. It was reported that actor-wife Kareena and he had fired their security personnel, and were taking legal action against the photographers who barged into their premises around 2 am some time last week. However, Saif dismissed the claims in a recent statement, saying, "That is not how we want to do things." Calling out the "wrong behaviour", the actor-producer stated, "The paps shooting the children, while they are doing extra-curricular classes or any class, is not required. Paparazzi cannot come inside the school. There are lines drawn; that*s all we are saying. The rest is noise and chatter because no one knows what the truth is, and everyone wants to sell something, but this is the truth."
