‘Happy ending, a spoof on romantic comedies’

Actor Saif Ali Khan, who unveiled the trailer of Happy Ending with the movie's star cast here, has promised to offer fun and entertainment via the film.The trailer of the film, directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, was launched here Thursday evening.

‘It's a very funny film. Post Go Goa Gone, we (Raj, Krishna and I) wanted to work together, and this script came up. It's a spoof on romantic comedies. I have done romantic comedies earlier, and this is an interesting spoof on the genre,’ Saif told reporters at the event.The movie also stars Govinda, Ileana D'Cruz, Ranvir Shorey and Kalki Koechlin.

Talking about the cast, Raj said: ‘We have got a great star cast for this film. Saif was apt for the role, while Govinda was the only choice for (his role in) this film.’ The film is slated to release 21 November.

Saif, last seen in Humshakals, says his new film Happy Ending, a romantic comedy, features him in a ‘subtle’ avatar as opposed to some ‘loud’ roles he has essayed in the past. Saif, along with the Happy Ending cast’, launched the movie's trailer at an event here Thursday.

Talking about the movie, in which he plays a writer, Saif said: ‘It is a genre I am comfortable with. Raj and DK (Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK) have directed it in a slightly different way for me. Sometimes in the past I have acted a little loudly, and this one is quite subtle.’

‘With this one, we have tried to go with a slightly international way of acting, which is new for me and challenging. I really enjoyed it,’ added the 44-year-old, who has even produced the film.

Saif hopes it performs well at the box office, but added that money was not the only concern while putting the film together.

‘Box office is important, we would like to make a lot of money and want our investors to be really happy. But do we go out of our way to put together a film that is designed only to make money?  We have probably tried that as well, but this is not one of those,’ Saif said. Kareena Kapoor and Preity Zinta have guest appearances in the movie. ians
