Playing a Sikh character was a big responsibility: Saif

Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan, who is playing a Sikh in some parts of his debut production "Love Aaj Kal", says essaying the character meant a lot of responsibility for him.

"You have to work with great responsibility while playing certain characters so that you don't end up hurting others' sentiments. I have played the role of a Sikh gentleman in this film with sensitivity. A lot of work went behind it in order to make the character authentic," Saif told reporters.

"We took care of the costumes, the look, mannerisms, dialect and a lot of other things like I was told not to smoke while wearing the turban while we were shooting for the film in Patiala," he added.

"Love Aaj Kal", directed by Imtiaz Ali of "Jab We Met" fame, also stars Deepika Padukone and is set to release July 31.


Nandana Sen kissed newcomer thrice for 'Perfect Mismatch'

Actress Nandana Sen, who did some sizzling scenes with Randeep Hooda for "Rang Rasiya", had also kissed debutant Anubhav Anand for their forthcoming film "Perfect Mismatch", but the scenes have been edited out.

The two had shot for three kissing scenes which were later removed from the final cut of the movie that is essentially a family entertainer, said a press release.

"Nandana and I did share few kissing scenes in the movie which have eventually been edited. We wanted 'Perfect Mismatch' to be a full fledged family entertainer so we decided not to keep the kissing scenes in the final cut," said Anand.

The movie, which also stars Anupam Kher and Boman Irani, is a Hindi-cum-English laugh riot which revolves around inter-caste marriage. The film releases July 24.
