His last film Cocktail managed to do well at the box office, he wed his lady love Kareena Kapoor, and for his forthcoming action thriller Race 2, he got the chance to drive around in high-end cars, shoot in locations like Istanbul and be besides some of Bollywood’s gorgeous girls.
Life’s set, Saif, isn’t it? asked a reporter. “It feels great! It seems my life is quite set… nazar mat lagao yaar (don’t jinx it),” said the actor, who looked extremely stylish and fit at a promotional event here Monday.
Saif was joined at the Audi car showroom here by his Race 2 co-stars Deepika Padukone and Ameesha Patel, who looked as glamourous as the film looks by its songs and trailers.
The Abbas-Mustan movie, set to release Jan 25, is the sequel to 2008 hit film Race. It also features Anil Kapoor, John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez.
Saif, who was part of the earlier movie too, says times have changed a lot for cinema in the country, and sequels are accepted.
“When I did Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1994), we were contemplating on a sequel to it. But then the idea was dropped because at that time, sequels didn’t used to happen. But things change… There are some films that lend themselves to a sequel, and the Race franchise lends itself perfectly,” he said.
