Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan revealed how his late father, the legendary cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, inspired him to read books, on 'The Kapil Sharma Show'. Saif will be seen as a celebrity guest on the show. While interacting with the host Kapil Sharma, Saif shared with him that his father had played an important role in inculcating a number of good habits in him and one of them is reading books.

He said: "One day my father was alone at home and everyone was out shooting, my mother, me, and everyone. As no one was there at home I called him up and asked him if he is okay, are you feeling lonely? So, he said I am not lonely; I have my books with me. So, I liked that sentiment a lot and you know even I feel the same way. I like books a lot."
