Just last week, we had reported that Saif Ali Khan is all set to make his Hollywood debut opposite “Black Swan” hottie, Natalie Portman. Well, that was a joke. Okay! We weren’t kidding, but Saif definitely was. This was Saif’s way of getting back at the media, as he was fed up with being bombarded with too many questions about his personal life.
Says an associate close to the actor, “The media has always hyped everything related to the star from his personal life to his professional life. The media and their questions to Saif seem to be never ending, from details about his wedding with Kareena to questions on all the female leads he works with. Saif has actually answered so many questions most of them rather tricky and unimportant, at one such moment when a journalist asked him about his future plans Saif decided to have some fun”.
Saif decided to play a fast one, instead of denying the rumour, he built up a story around a film with Natalie. He was aware that one quote from him could lead to a domino effect and will definitely make headlines. This news soon became the latest talk of town, everyone was curious to know how he actually managed this Bollywood-Hollywood collaboration.
When the actor was contacted, he revealed that the whole thing was just a prank played by him on the media. Saif said “It was a joke, I am sorry.”
“It’s just that I am very annoyed with speculations on all the aspects of my life. If this goes on, I might just start making up stories like these to entertain myself. Hope people will understand that,” Saif further clarified.
