Saif Ali Khan may have made his name with romantic comedies like Hum Tum and Salaam Namaste but of late the actor has largely concentrated on thrillers and dramas like Race and its sequel, Agent Vinod, Aarakshan and Kurbaan.
The actor was keen on returning to comedy so, when Sajid approached him for Humshakals, he immediately said yes. Saif reveals: “I remember watching Sajid’s earlier film Housefull and laughing a lot. I like Sajid’s sense of humor. I wanted to do a comedy and this is the funniest film I have ever done.”
Apparently, Saif dresses up as a woman for a scene in the film; and this caused Kareena much amusement when she dropped in on the sets. Saif concurs: “Kareena loved me as a girl. She is very sporty and appreciated my look. Had I been in Kareena’s place, I would have filed for a divorce.”
Saif’s female avatar would be seen romancing Ritesh Deshmukh and the actor jokes: “My chemistry with Ritesh was better than with Esha Gupta and Tammanah. I find Ritesh attractive, he has got sexy legs. I think I should take my career forward as his leading lady.”
