Talking about his role, Saif told a leading daily, "Gautum's (nickname Guttlu) background is very different. He's a dilli boy from a traditional, middle-class family. His mother is sitting on his head forcing him to get married. As a person he's warm, charming, sensitive, funny. I think I'm like that in real life! What do you think? No? On a serious note, Gautam does have a lot of drama in his life, so dealing with it led to some traumatic, emotional scenes, which were quite hard. And fun in equal measure.''
Producer Dinesh Vijan added, "In Cocktail, Saif aka Gautam is a mast-maula character, a Delhi boy with a Delhi accent who flirts but doesn't objectify women. He has a way with words that makes women feel comfortable. Gautam the lover boy will make you fall in love with Saif all over again."
Well, we believe that this film is a sure shot hit and the deadly combination of Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone rocks!
