Mumbai: Actor Saif Ali Khan has been in the news for all wrong reasons. The Chhote Nawaab wouldn't have even imagined that his recent joke would fall so hard on him. Saif had recently said that he had signed Academy Award winning actress Natalie Portman for a rom-com. But apparently, Saif was 'just joking'. This hasn't gone down well with Portman.
Sometime back, Saif Ali Khan told a daily, "A love story we are working on ... It's a secret ... We are doing a film with Natalie Portman." If reports are to be believed, Saif's joke has irked Portman's representative and they have slapped a legal notice seeking an explanation for the ‘joke'. Talking to a daily, Saif had also apologised for his joke. "It was a joke. I'm sorry," Khan said.
In fact, sometime back, Saif had to face the legal trouble over his fight with an NRI at one of Mumbai's restaurants. Though the final verdict of the case still remains a suspense, Saif and his friends had to undergo a lot of public criticisms after the brawl.
