Is Saif Ali Khan okay doing a sex comedy?

The Phantom actor is all gaga over his female avatar in his latest film Humshakals

Saif Ali Khan’s female avatar in upcoming film Humshakals is the much-talked about affair and the actor credits his heroine wife Kareena Kapoor behind it. The 43-year-old actor, who will be seen in a comedy after a long time, said Kareena challenged him to look more beautiful than his co-star Riteish Deshmukh‘s female version.

Saif, Riteish and Ram Kapoor play triple roles in the Sajid Khan directed film, releasing on June 20. “I was initially apprehensive when Sajid (director) narrated the sequence to me… But Kareena made that easy. I took tips from her. She taught me how to pout and do the hair. She told me that I have to look better than Riteish’s female look,” Saif said during the promotion of the film here.

There is a sequence in the film, where the lead actors — Saif, Riteish and Ram Kapoor — are seen romancing their female versions.
