Saif Ali Khan turned director in one scene in Happy Ending

Saif Ali Khan is known to share his creative inputs for films of his, especially the ones which are produced by him as well. Now he has taken a step ahead for his recently released film Happy Ending. For one of the comic scenes in his comedy about rom- coms, he has also called the shots as a director. “ This is the scene where Saif’s luxury car is towed away on the highway after an accident. The driver is played by DK of director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. Since he was behind the wheels, someone had to come behind the camera and make sure that the scene was canned right. This is where Saif volunteered to do the needful,” a source close to the film says.

Interestingly, the scene was first shot with a foreign actor. However, Saif was not happy with the final results and felt that an Indian driver on a coastal highway in USA would add on some fun into the proceedings, especially due to its quirky set up. “ He literally coaxed me into acting out the scene,” DK says, who is not new to the world of acting as he has faced the camera for a cameo in his own Go Goa Gone as well.

“ It is a funny scene though and when Saif promised that he would direct me well, I was game for the scene,” DK adds.

While the results do bring on a chuckle, considering the manner in which the scene has been set by Saif and enacted by DK, one wonders if a fullfledged film by Saif in the capacity of a director is not too far away. Now that’s something we would love for sure!

“Happy Ending is not a ‘romedy’ that Govinda wants from Saif Ali Khan” – Raj & D.K.

Happy Ending has released and found some extreme views coming its way. Since the films plays with the cliches, it eventually finds the same route which is ‘time and again successful’, just as the airport chase sequence which – for reasons unknown – never fails (as exclaimed by one of the characters in the film).

While reports continue to trickle in, a couple of points that are most prominent are the ones centered on the film spoofing Bollywood and then following the romcom formula while trying to beat it for a good part of the narrative.

Directors Raj and DK talk.

In your mind, were you designing a spoof in Happy Ending?
We won’t call that a spoof per se but yes, the idea was that the movie doesn’t take itself seriously. This is the reason why the film is neither a spoof nor a drama. There is a bit of satirical humor also, like the kind where Govinda goes on to get a six pack. It is little things like these that we worked on for Happy Ending.
