Homi Adajania, the director of Cocktail, says that Imran Khan was his first choice for the film that releases next weekend.
“Saif Ali Khan was not the first choice. Imran was supposed to do it but he was not sure if he wanted to do it at that point of a time. As Saif is the producer, he was going through the scripts, he read it and loved it. So, it worked out pretty well and that is how he came on board.” said the director.
Adajania started as a director with ‘Being Cyrus’ and Saif played the lead role. Dimple Kapadia and Boman Irani too featured in it.
Cocktail also features Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty. Boman Irani and Dimple Kapadia too have prominent roles to play. The film is all set to hit in theatres on July 13 2012.
