Dear Chhote Nawab,
There's no doubt about the fact that you're a phenomenal actor. Always were, always will be. The way you moved past your lover-boy image and gave us a spellbinding experience in 'Omkara', 'Parineeta' and the latest 'Sacred Games' is something that none of us can ever forget. However, a closer look at your career has made us think otherwise.
An extensive analysis clearly indicates that while you continued delivering mind-blowing performances, Bollywood filmmakers (sadly) have been throwing some surprisingly embarrassing dead ends your way.
Oh, you don't agree? Let's take a look at the evidence, then.
Preity Zinta dumped you to be with Chandrachoor Singh in Kya Kehna!
For those of you who don't remember - Yes, this happened. And yes, you read it right! It may have been in another cinematic era, but it was Chandrachoor Singh of all people.
Remember Dil Chahta Hai? Aamir got Preity, Akshay got Dimple and you got Suchitra Pillai!
Well, you got the answer. Need we say more?
This is nuts - even Esha Deol had the option to dump you in Naa Tum Jaano Na Hum
Two minutes of silence!
However, this was not the end. You got dumped again by Dia Mirza in Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein
Congratulations on a bum-deal mate!
You got Preity Zinta only after your best friend died in Kal Ho Na Ho
So, you basically ended up looking like a villain despite playing the Good Samaritan.
You fell in love with Diana Penty and not Deepika in Cocktail!
How could you? We're speechless!
Most people find refuge in humour. But not you, Saifu! When you made a joke about working with Natalie Portman...
She actually sent you a legal notice.
