Ibrahim and actress Sara Ali Khan are Saif's children with his first wife Amrita Singh. Saif was married to actress Amrita Singh for 13 years till they decided to part ways in 2004.

In the interview with Mumbai Mirror, Saif also spoke about whether he plans to launch Ibrahim in Bollywood or not. The Hum Tum actor said, "I don't know if I will launch him. It's an option and films are certainly a viable career choice for him. He's sporty and likes the idea of being in the movies rather than pursuing an academic job." Saif also added, "No one in the family, with the exception of his sister, have been interested in the latter anyway."

Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan recently featured in Imtiaz Ali's film Love Aaj Kal. The 2009 film of the same name starred Saif and Deepika Padukone in leading roles. Speaking of his daughter's performance in the film which didn't do well at the box office, Saif said, "I am very proud of Sara. Hits and misses are a part of the game."

On the professional front, Saif Ali Khan was last seen in the 2020 comedy drama Jawaani Jaaneman, where he shared screen space with Alaya Furniturewalla and Tabu. He has Bunty Aur Babli 2 and Bhoot Police in the pipeline. Saif, who made his debut as a producer with Jaawani Jaaneman, spoke to Mumbai Mirror regarding his upcoming projects as a producer. He said, "We are negotiating for the rights to make a biopic. I can't divulge details, but it ticks all the boxes for an interesting, box-office friendly story."
