Kareena, Preity to play Saif’s ex-lovers in ‘Happy Ending’
According to the latest grapevine, Kareena Kapoor and Preity Zinta will be playing Saif Ali Khan’s ex-girlfriends in Raj and Krishna DK's next, 'Happy Ending'. In the film, Saif is paired with Ileana D’Cruz.
Revealed a source close to the production, "The director duo were looking for actresses whose romantic camaraderie with Saif has clicked in the past. It was Saif who suggested Preity's name who has successfully paired with him twice in the past (Kal Ho Na Ho and Salaam Namaste)."
The source adds that Saif personally called up Preity and
asked her if she'd be interested in playing his ex-girlfriend. She laughed and
agreed. "Her character is the anchor in Saif's life. He plays a successful
author struggling with a writer's block," says the source.
On the other hand Kareena, will also be seen playing a cameo in the film. She will play a dramatically different character. "She is more of an obsessive lover and her part is much smaller than Preity's," adds the source.
When contacted, Krishna DK said, "Yes, Saif called Preity and it was sweet of her to agree. Bebo's inclusion was more of a spontaneous decision as she was with Saif in Los Angeles where we were shooting."
