In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, actor Saif Ali Khan has said that his upcoming film with Homi Adajania (of Cocktail fame) is not an ‘unfunny’ film like his last release ‘Humshakals’ which was directed by Sajid Khan.
When we tried to dig deeper to find out the reason, a source close to the actor revealed that it wasn’t the box office performance of the film that Saif wasn’t happy with, but he wasn’t too pleased with how ‘Humshakals’ as a film had shaped up.
The film was trashed by the critics, but went on to open well at the box office in India. After a good first week of Rs 55 crore, Humshakals crashed on its second Friday and collected just Rs 61 crore net at the domestic box office.
We had mentioned in our review that Saif’s performance actually made it “worse because throughout the length of the film you can’t help but feel the uneasiness of the otherwise classy star. He feels miscast in a role that only Akshay Kumar would have done justice to.”
