However, despite the fact that Saif wanted Kareena to play the female lead opposite him, he respected the opinion of Imtiaz, who thought otherwise. One must commend Saif for accepting in print that casting is the director's prerogative. To cut a long story short, the cast of the Imtiaz Ali directed Illuminati Films project is quite interesting.
As per the lead actor and producer Saif Ali Khan, it will star Rishi Kapoor, obviously Saif himself, Deepika Padukone, a new face (with an important role!) and most interestingly, a foreign /Hollywood actress! Well, what about Rozza as the foreign face dear Saif, if we are allowed the temerity of suggesting so?
