Saif and Kareena depressed

Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan.

Bollywood actors often describe their shooting schedule as a picnic. But “cold and depressing” is what Saif Ali Khan had to say about the US shoot of his film
Kurbaan. He was speaking for not just himself but also his girlfriend and co-star Kareena Kapoor. “Kurbaan was hard work. Period. In fact, the Philadelphia schedule was plain hell. It wasn't anything like a picnic shooting for the film,” shuddered Saif, who is glad that the film is complete and ready for release.

Saif said, “It gets dark there at 4 pm itself. Moreover, it’s so cold and at minus 10 degrees it can actually get really depressing. Since we were shooting in sync sound, it was extremely difficult to get the pitch and tone right while delivering our dialogues.”

The film by Rensil D’Souza also stars Vivek Oberoi, Dia Mirza, Om Puri and Kirron Kher and will be released on November 20. It was during the shoot of the film that Saif and Kareena got news of the terror attack in Mumbai last year. “Because of that, it was so difficult to concentrate on the film’s shoot. Thankfully, Bebo (Kareena Kapoor) was there with me at that time but still both of us were very depressed,” said Saif.

Saif and Kareena were required to wear layers of clothing. Later, for continuity purpose, they had to wear the same clothes in the summer of Mumbai.
Who says shooting for a film is like a picnic, Kurbaan certainly wasn't one.

When asked to name one film which was fun to shoot, Saif talked of Abbas-Mustan’s movie Race. “Now that's what I call as a real picnic,” Saif opined.

“Doing the film was quite easy since the working hours were comfortable and locations were nice, easy and comfortable. It was really simple work and I enjoyed a lot. It was entertaining to drive fast cars and saying cool lines,” said the actor.
