Saif has made a promise to Kareena. He’ll have a double celebration for the success of Kareena’s release Kambhakkt Ishq and his own Love Aaj Kal. But if, God forbid Kareena’s film doesn’t do well, there will be no celebration for Love Aaj Kal.
“That’s true, ” admits Saif. “For me my film and Bebo’s are equally important. In fact, if there were a choice I’d rather have her film work than mine. God willing, both films will be hits. And we’ll have a double celebration.”
Saif is openly appreciative of Kareena’s on-screen bonding with Akshay. “Akshay is a great guy. I’ve had a great time working with him in many films like Main Khiladi Tu Anari and Tashan. In Tashan all three of us, Bebo, Akshay and I had great fun. He’s one co-star both Bebo and I like.”
There was therefore no awkwardness at all regarding the kissing scenes between Akshay and Kareena. “They are more funny than titillating, ” grins Saif.
Says Saif, “I loved the film. Bebo and Akki look their career best. I think the film is great fun! I’d love to see it again. I think it is going to be a huge hit. And oh yes, my kids loved it too.”
Saif and his two children Sarah and Ebrahim saw Kareena’s Kambhakkt Ishq on Tuesday night and they were bowled over.
Sarah and Ebrahim are hugely fond of Kareena, and fans of her films. The bonding between Kareena and the two children is very easy to see.
