Saif Ali Khan: Jaaaagte raho!


By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, Aug. 4 -- Gooood morning my darling pesto cream pastas! I'm in the mood for some firangi food today. It's on my mind. So, you guys please don't mind. Anyway, I had no choice but to get that moronic Safedi Lal, my washerman back on duty. He was threatening a police case. Not that I'm scared, but I don't want to be harrowed by these khaki vardiwalas.

It's too much work you see! Now enough on my private affairs. Here's what's naya, taaza and masaledaar in the lives of your favourite B-townies, courtesy my spies, detectives, and eavesdroppers. Ah! I'm so proud of them, of course with some exceptions. My jasoos from Goregaon has reported that Saif Ali Khan has become a nightrider of sorts.

Nightrider? I thought Shah Rukh Khan's team was called Kolkata Knight Riders. And since when did chote nawab become a cricketer? My jasoos says that he was only punning (which obviously didn't strike me). He says that Kareena Kapoor's Saifu was stuck at Film City for eight and a half hours. That's long!

It was pouring torrentially that evening when he shot for Kaun Banega Crorepati with Deepika Padukone and host, Amitabh Bachchan. The shoot took that long to start because the set was flooded. He sat in a van with star company without a fuss. After wrapping up the shoot, he headed straight for a late night shoot of Agent Vinod in another part of the city, where his crew members were waiting for him.

By the time nawabsaab returned home, he had been awake for over 24 hours. However, my informer says that he didn't get a chance to rest even then. A couple of meetings had been scheduled in advance for the day. After a shower and change, the actor headed for those. Haaye bechara!
