But looks like Saif Ali Khan is no longer interested in working with Shahrukh Khan in spite of Kal Ho Na Ho being one of the biggest hits in the Bollywood industry and also a film that revived Saif's dying career.
Saif's response was, "I would rather play a main role in an Illuminati film. I don't think I will get a role like Kal Ho Naa Ho ever again with Shah Rukh Khan - probably not! KHNH was almost my movie. Actors like to play larger than life and we become spoilt that we feel we that we are important enough. It took me a long time and work to graduate from second lead to main and I don't want to go back to doing that."
If Kal Ho Na Ho had two leads, then Dil Chatha Hai another big hit of Saif had three main leads. So when he was questioned about collaborating with Farhan Akhtar again, Saif was more than willing to collaborate.
He said, "I played the third lead in Farhan's film Dil Chahta Hai which became a very nice popular role. I am sure when he has a role for me it will happen. I am in talks with Excel now for a movie to be directed by Reema Kagti but not by Farhan. I would love for Farhan but maybe the kind of films he has made was suited for others."
So after Sajid Khan, Saif has decided not to work with Shahrukh Khan. Hopefully this doesn't bitter their good friendship.
