"It's dangerous to cast Kareena opposite me." - Saif
He plays a stylish spy in Agent Vinod, opposite his real-life girlfriend who will also be seen in an action-packed role.
And though Kareena Kapoor had publicly admitted that she hates being forced to perform stunts, actor-producer Saif Ali Khan admits he's "very impressed" with her new avatar as a Pakistani CIA agent.
"It's quite weird because she has a very intense expression on her face when she performs stunts.
But It looks very convincing on her," he says.
In a recent interview, Bebo mentioned that she'd rather do a romantic film with her rumoured husband-to-be, even hinting at considering something along the lines of 2004 romcom, Hum Tum.
But Saif rebuffs her, saying, "Kareena would rather do something like a soft comedy with me because she is a romantic person at heart. But I don't think she sees an important point: how interested will the audiences be to watch us together as an on-screen couple, since we are actually together in real life?" The Love Aaj Kal actor insists that a film like Agent Vinod, co-produced by partner Dinesh Vijan, is a far more interesting project for them to work on together. "We have been portrayed very intelligently in it. I feel it's a little dangerous to cast Kareena opposite me in a typical Bollywood film and expect the audience to be interested in watching it," he says.
As for his own punch-per-minute role, he says, "It was incredibly demanding physically, given that there was plenty of wirework, besides the regular stunts. In fact, I hurt myself quite a few times during the shoot. But that made it more special," says the National Awardwinning actor.
Saif trained in Vietnam to learn the ropes, literally.
"I went there for a few days to learn to handle harnesses better. That's where our action director (Peter Heinz) has his headquarters too. That was the main physical exercise I did, apart from working out intensely in the gym and doing yoga in Mumbai. It was quite a dramatic lifestyle change I went through to get into my character. But I enjoyed the process," says the actor with a smile.
