There is something about Saif Ali Khan and royalty! The Nawab was chosen to be the face of Siyarams and so for the TV commercial, the unit flew to Jaipur.
In one of the most beautiful white stone palaces, the ad was shot. A helicopter was hired to show the affluent lifestyle of the actor. But with permission issues, the chopper which was needed for a 4 hour shoot, was held by authorities for 4 days, snowballing the cost of production.
Saif, who shot the commercial in between his Bullet Raja schedule, was battling high fever and shooting in temperatures in the high 40’s. But his Begum, Kareena Kapoor Khan joined him for a short chutti and nursed him back to pink health in the Pink city.
The role of the mother in the ad was first offered to Sharmila Tagore. But the yesteryear beauty was in London for her late hubby’s honouring at Lords and so failed to shoot for the film.
Siyarams is being endorsed by MS Dhoni and Saif. Both these celebrities are also the hottest actor cricketer jodi for brands, and Siyarams has cashed in on their popularity.
