Like Kareena Kapoor Khan, husband and Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan has walked out of three film projects.
Earlier, he turned down Vikramaditya Motwane's "AK Vs SK" and Sujoy Ghosh's "The Devotion of Suspect X". Recently, he backed out of Sameer Sharma's "Jugalbandi", which is being produced by Salman Khan.
It looks like Saif is choosing his films wisely as his career graph has gone down in the last few years. He will soon be appearing with Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut in Vishal Bharadwaj's "Rangoon".
However, according to the "Phantom" actor, he has not walked out of any film, it is just the films didn't work out for him.
When Saif was informed that he and Kareena had been tagged as the walkout couple of Bollywood, he told DNA, "That's ridiculous! I think there's too much talk and a lot of premature announcements are made. Nobody's walking out of a film. Walking out of a film is when you are all set to go and then you dump the project. Sounds terrible! But nobody does that."
"I have never done that. I've never walked out of a film after I signed it. You come and discuss films, some work out but some don't. So many films are offered to so many people who reject them but they don't make the press every time. Wrong people talk sometimes, sometimes people announce prematurely... It's quite a small industry and word gets out," he further added.
On the other hand, Kareena has turned down several films, from "Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela" to "Shuddhi".
Recently, she turned her back on "Dil Dhadakne Do", "Bajirao Mastani", "Shuddhi" and "Section 84".
Kareena walked out of Rajkumar Gupta's "Section 84" because she was not happy with the script.
"From the very beginning I made it clear that I was not happy with several things in the script. The director promised to come back with the changes. However, I was still not convinced about the script even after he made the changes. So I thought it was better to opt out. I was patient. I gave the script several chances. But it didn't work for me," Bollywood Hungama quoted the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actress as saying.
