Blue-blooded to the core Saif Ali Khan’s finer tastes are evident, even during shooting. On outdoors, he doesn’t just stay at a secluded villa completely cut off from the rest of the cast and crew, but it is a place preferred by Hollywood celebs, too.

Case in point, when the nawab stayed with his begum Kareena Kapoor Khan at the exclusive Le Touessrok Hotel in Mauritius while shooting for Humshakals while the rest of the crew shacked up at the less tony Hotel InterContinental in Mauritius.

A source says, “The Le Touessrok is quite expensive and has, in the past, hosted Hollywood celebs and international royalty. Tucked away in a remote corner of Mauritius, it has private villas, has the Givenchy Spa, a private golf course and a short boat-ride away, a private island belonging to the hotel which is only for hotel guests. The production team didn’t have a package deal with the distant Le Touessrok and was hesitant but Saif insisted on the privacy.”

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2014 by saifalikhanonline

Humshakals remained in the steady range on its first Wednesday. On its sixth day, the film collected 3.75 crores nett at the Box Office, which is pretty strong though it was a week day. With this, this Sajid Khan film now stands with a total collection of 53.23 crores at the domestic box office. The film has already crossed the 50 crores mark in just six days.

Humshakals did good business at the multiplexes and is all set surpass the collections of Tiger Shroff’s Heropanti which is the seventh highest grosser of 2014 currently. Starring Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor in lead roles, this comedy drama turned out to be a family entertainer and thus fared well at the box office.

However, with the release of much-awaited Ek Villain this week, Humshakals may experience a drop considering the hype for the other release.

Producer Vashu Bhagnani, who hosted a party to celebrate the response to his film “Humshakals”, directed by Sajid Khan, says though people had “vicious things” to say about the entertainer, the box office numbers have proved otherwise.

The movie, starring Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Esha Gupta and Tammannaah Bhatia, received mixed reviews, and it was trashed by many on social networking sites. Bhagnani, who has claimed that the film managed a gross business of Rs.76 crore in four days since its release June 20, is happy.

“Thank you very much. Some people had spread vicious things about the film on social networking sites that the film is bad. But the audience has proved that the film is good,” Bhagnani said here Tuesday. Except Saif, Tamannaah and Bipasha, the rest of the cast along with Sajid was present at the party.

When asked about critics slamming the film, Bhagnani said: “We can never say anything to critics because we have to stay in the industry. It is their personal view. We make films for the audiences and we are very happy with the result.”
