It came as a surprise to many when Saif Ali Khan came out in the open and spoke about Humshakals failing at the Box Office. Saif stead that he had surrendered himself to director Sajid Khan even though he was uncomfortable with the content.
Saif expressed his displeasure over the kind of response his role received in Humshakals and stated, “The film didn’t have a script as such, it was all there in Sajid’s mind. I did whatever he asked me to. I did the film thinking that it will help me expand my market, but obviously that wasn’t a clever idea. I was trying to be someone I’m not. The humour was not the kind I enjoy. My upcoming film, Happy Endings, is closer to the comedy I believe in and am known for.”
Shaken by the backlash Humshakals brought him, Saif has decided to not work with Sajid Khan in another film which was in the pipeline.
Even his wife Kareena Kapoor was extremely upset with it. “She told me that this wasn’t what people expected from me. But she kept her opinions to herself and that was sensitive of her. I’ve been introspecting a lot and will never repeat a mistake that was Humshakals.” he said.
Talking about his future projects, Saif stated that he is busy rapping up both Happing Endings and Phantom post which he would once again team up with Homi Adajania. The duo will team up for a comic love story set in Australia.
In a recent interview Homi Adajania, who is currently busy with Finding Fanny, had hinted about a plan to team up with his frequent collaborator Saif Ali Khan for a third film. The project has finally taken shape. This will be Homi’s third film with Saif, after Being Cyrus (2006) and Cocktail (2012).
Revealed a source, “Homi and Saif share a great working relationship. After the success of Cocktail, they are taking it forward with yet another film. They are already in talks with a leading lady, but the deal hasn’t been finalised yet.”
Confirming this, Saif stated, “I will start shooting Homi’s film around November.” He laughs and says, “It’s a comedy but not an unfunny one like Humshakals. We plan to start shooting the film in Australia during the winter.
Here’s wishing both Saif and Homi all the best.
