Saif Ali Khan has come a long way in the Hindi film industry and the audience has seen an incredible transformation in him over the years. Did you know that the suave and uber cool Saif, who apparently made the term ‘metrosexual’ popular in India was once on an Australian stamp? So here’s how it happened. On good friend and actress Preity Zinta’s talk show a few years ago, Saif revealed that he once happened to be representing India at the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. At the event, he was performing on a song and at that very moment they captured it and put it on the Australian stamp. He went on to add that he probably even had it framed somewhere.

1. Preity Zinta’s glasses

Kal Ho Naa Ho was produced by Karan Johar and starred Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan.

These surely became a rage way back then. The nerdy glasses suited Preity’s dull and boring life well. Soon, we saw teenagers wearing them around, even if they were just meant for a fashion statement!

Kya Kehna turns 17: Saif Ali Khan recalls how Preity Zinta talked non-stop during the shoot

As Kya Kehna completes 17 years of its release today, actor Saif Ali Khan talks about co-star Preity Zinta’s energy, and how he had a wardrobe malfunction while shooting for the film.

Filmmaker Kundan Shah’s Kya Kehna, which released in 2000, was touted to be a film way ahead of its time. Starring Preity Zinta, Saif Ali Khan and Chandrachur Singh in the lead roles, it was about an unwed girl who gets pregnant. Saif played the role of Preity’s lover in the film who leaves her on learning about her pregnancy. The actor says it was this bad boy character that made him come on board.

“The unique part about my character was that it was a slightly negative role, which was quite dynamic. The role was that of a bad boy. The girl falls for him and he dumps her,” says Saif.

Talking about how filmmaker Kundan Shah made it interesting for him to make sense of the character, Saif narrates, “He is not your typical commercial director. He needed to find a story for the guy. He said a person who treats girls like this must have an issue with his mother. So, he wrote a scene where my character confronts his mother, and in a Freudian way, accuses her of being with other men. It was a different angle, but later, one of the producers found it too much and cut it from the film.”
