Did Imran Khan turn down ‘Cocktail’?

Imran Khan

Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty would be acting opposite Imran Khan in Cocktail, only if he had yes yes to director Homi Adajania. However, Saif Ali Khan took his place.

According to director Homi Adajania, Saif was taken in the film only because Imran said NO.

“Saif was not the first choice. Imran was supposed to do it but he was not sure if he wanted to do it at that point of a time,” Homi Adajania said.

“As Saif is the producer, he was going through the scripts, he read it and loved it. So, it worked out pretty well and that is how he came on board,” he said.

In Homi Adajania’s debut film too, Saif played the lead. Homi debuted with “Being Cyrus”, which had Dimple Kapadia and Boman Irani too.

“Cocktail” too has Dimple-Boman, playing prominent roles.

Explaining their presence in the cast, he said: “Dimple and Boman are also there in the film and it is not like they were in ‘Being Cyrus’ so are part of this film as well. It is not a matter of familiarity but using talented actors who fit the bill.”
