Saif Ali Khan, may not envy his contemporaries excelling in their respective careers but that does not stop him from rueing a disaster of a film, called ‘Humshakals’, he was part of.

Yes, the otherwise controversy-free Prince of Bollywood has become extremely vocal about how he loathes that film and considers it his biggest mistake.

It so happened that the actor was recently asked at an awards show about his film choices and his worst choice ever, to which Saif replied, without an iota of doubt, that ‘Humshakals’ had been a mistake.

A source, who was present at the function, told us, “He was quick to call ‘Humshakals’ his biggest mistake. He was not tad bit apprehensive about saying it in front of an audience that is mostly form the Bollywood industry.”

That’s a daring act, must say! Hope Director Sajid Khan is not listening to this or is he?

Filmmaker Sajid Khan’s comedy movie ‘Humshakals’ featured Saif Ali Khan, Esha Gupta, Riteish Deshmukh, Bipasha Basu, Ram Kapoor and Tamannaah Bhatia, has completed it’s one year of relese today. The film was released on June 20 last year.

Sajid Khan directed film was produced by Vashu Bhagnani, co-produced by Fox Star Studios and Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment. In the film Saif Ali Khan, Ram Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh were in triple roles.

Raj, Darshan Jariwala as Cyrus Patel, Chunkey Pandey as Karan T Bijlani and Nawab Shah was seen as Dr. Khan.

Despite poor critical reception, the film did well at the box office during first few days after release. Bipasha Basu called Humshakals “the worst experience of her life,” and Esha Gupta reportedly warned family members not to see the film.

Clearing the deck for Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan hosted a party at his Bandra home last weekend that was attended by the likes of Ritesh Deshmukh, filmmaker Sajid Khan, Saif’s recently married sister Soha Ali Khan and others. Friends have said there was no real occasion for the celebrations, other than the fact that Saif hadn’t seen his friends for a while now. The actor, who in the past few months has made headlines only for the wrong reasons, is believed to be looking forward to going back to work after a string of back-to-back box-office duds.

He appears to have mended ways with his Humshakals director, whom he practically hauled over the coals after the film’s abysmal reception from critics and fans last year. Saif famously declared that he had made a mistake by signing Sajid’s comedy and that he hadn’t enjoyed a single day of working on that film.

Reinvention for Saif Ali Khan is a double- edged sword

Saif Ali Khan is currently biding his time like a bull in a bear market. This was a given after two of his big budget films— Tigmanshu Dhulia’s action drama Bullett Raja and Sajid Khan’s slapstick comedy Humshakals—crashed at the box-office, leaving him high-and-dry as a film star in an increasingly competitive industry. However, Saif shows no hint of jittery nerves, neither is he afraid of being written off. Perhaps, this is the effect of having struggled as an actor for a long time and having been written off many times. “As long you are enjoying the kind of work you do, it is all good,” he says.

Khan is at Mehboob Studios in Bandra, a popular haunt of Bollywood actors for interviews and film promotions. He has arrived in his sleek red Audi, and the vehicle is making more heads turn than his presence is. He smiles as people gather around his car to admire it. He exchanges hellos with his erstwhile business partner Dinesh Vijan and gets into his vanity van, which is also painted a bright red hue. Red, then, seems a favourite with the Nawab of Pataudi. Or it could be wife Kareena Kapoor’s choice.

He starts rehearsing his lines for a television show as part of a promotional appearance for his just-released film Happy Ending. Unlike many actors, who don’t enjoy the film marketing drill, Saif Ali Khan is taking it in his stride. He is in an upbeat mood, making conversation with almost everyone who approaches him. After his round of official meetings, he invites me inside the van for the interview. His upbringing is immediately evident. He apologises for making me wait outside, stands up to greet me, and sits down only after I have taken my seat. He is very much the person one wishes most famous people would be: unrehearsed, and well-mannered.
