Deepika Padkone appears to be Saif Ali Khan’s lucky mascot. While the Saif-Kareena jodi has never been hot at the boxoffice, Deepika has always given hits with the Nawab. Their last super hit films were Cocktail (2012) and Race 2 (2013). Their first film Love Aaj Kal (2009) was a super hit, followed by Aarakshan (2011) which did reasonably well too. Saif has never had so many hits films with any actress except Deepika. It’s time for Saif do another film with Dippy. Maybe that’s when he will get his mojo back which has sadly been missing from his last couple of releases.
The India- England second Test at Lord’s is turning out to be a humdinger. But it’s not just for that that the diarist spotted a very dapper Saif Ali Khan watching the match in the company of his London-based friend from school, Saleem Siddiqui. The two teams are vying for the Pataudi Trophy and English papers are full of eulogies for the elegant Mansoor Ali Khan. No wonder a proud Saif, who is at present in London to shoot for Kabir Khan’s Phantom, decided to mix business with sport.
