Saif Ali Khan is well-known in the industry for his casanova avatar. He had excelled in films like Hum Tum and Kya Kehna for such roles. No wonder, Saifu could play the best ever flirt onscreen and excels in roles that requires him to woo hot women around.
Reliving the same casanova, spoilt brat image, Saif's recent attempt in Cocktail as the womanizer 'Gautam Kapoor', was a complete disaster, according to the critics and viewers. A well-groomed, sexy stubbled and ruffled haired Saif's effort to woo the two hotties, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty, has some what disappointed us. No wonder, it was evident that the 40-year-old Saif could no longer fit into a young casanova's role. He looked too old to romance the two young ladies in Cocktail.
Rediff states, "Saif is visibly out-of-sorts as the roguish charmer, adopting an exaggeratedly over-the-top approach to flirting that comes across as plain obnoxious." Yahoo states, "Saif looks old enough to father the two leading ladies in this film." In short, Saif lacks the young guy image onscreen, for whom girls would fall. So, Saif, our suggestion would be, act according to your age, your casanova days are gone now onscreen.
We have come up with 3 hot names, who could have been a better choice for Gautam Kapoor's role in Cocktail:
Ranbir Kapoor: When it comes to wooing women, we believe, in the recent times, no one could do a better job than this Kapoor lad. What's so interesting about Ranbir is that this guy have had a long list of girlfriends in his real life. Ranbir, who has been blessed with cute, charming looks and the 'Kapoor khaandaan' tag are more than enough to make a girl fall for him. Also, Ranbir's past relationship with Veronica aka Deepika Padukone could have been an added advantage for him to fit into Gautam Kapoor's role in Cocktail.
Shahid Kapoor: Here comes the man with a million watt, killer smile. Shahid is more a lover boy, than a casanova. Bollywood's top women of today, like Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan has been in awe of this cutie pie. Shahid is 31, but he has still retained his boyish charm, that could make any girl go crazy.
Imran Khan: Aamir Khan's nephew Imran Khan, who made his debut with Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na, garnered acclaims and appreciations for his good looks. As an actor, he was married at a very young age with his long time girlfriend. But, he still maintains the ability to make a girl gaga over him.
So guys, whom do you think could have replaced Saif in Cocktail?
