There is a new girl in Saif Ali Khan‘s life and he isn’t willing to talk about it yet. Kareena doesn’t need to worry though as this liaison is strictly restricted for screen. For his upcoming (tentatively titled) Cocktail, there is an actress other than Deepika Padukone as well whose identity has been kept a secret.
“It isn’t only Deepika who is the leading lady in the film; there is another girl roped in too”, informs a senior crew member on condition of anonymity, “She has a very strong role in the film which justifies the ‘cocktail’ in Saif’s life. There are strict instructions from Saif as well as director Homi Adajania that no one is supposed to talk about this girl. She is going to be a surprise package.”
This mystery girl hasn’t acted in a Bollywood film before and Cocktail would be her launch-pad. Her being roped in the film, though surprising, isn’t something new coming from Saif though. Reason being that he had tried something like this in Love Aaj Kal as well.
“Till a few weeks before the release of Love Aaj Kal, no one knew that it was a two heroine film with Giselle Monteiro in the film”, says an insider, “In fact even till the day of film’s release, everyone thought that she was a Punjabi ‘kudi’ in real life as well though Saif threw a shocker by announcing later that she was a Brazilian. He likes doing that to his audience. Who knows what nationality would this new girl in Cocktail belong to?”
While Imtiaz Ali is responsible for bringing in this new character as he is the writer of both Love Aaj Kal as well as Cocktail, Deepika too happens to be a common factor here. One wonders whether she is now pretty much used to new girls arriving alongside her.
“Since Cocktail won’t release before next year, Saif as well as Homi want to lie low and don’t intend to make any announcements”, the insider continues, “In any case, Saif is currently busy with Aarakshan and then he has to spend most part of the remaining year into putting together Agent Vinod. He would reveal the mystery girl only later in the day. Abhi kissi ko jaldi nahi hai.”
When asked to reveal some more details, Deepika sent back a text stating, “Do you think anyone will reveal it as yet?” Well Deepika, we get the message. Pun intended!
