While the world is panning Saif Ali Khan for his dud Agent Vinod, the actor seems to have found a fan in Parineeti Chopra.
Priyanka Chopra’s talented cousin who made her debut in last year’s Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, confesses she has an autograph fetish when it comes to Saif. ‘I was seven when I first took Saif Ali Khan’s autograph.
Then I met him again a few years ago and took another autograph.
He is just too good, my most favourite actor,’ gushes the 23-year-old.
Parineeti’s star-struck emotions for Saif is indeed amusing if you consider her superstar sister Priyanka has never really been close to Saif, primarily because the actor’s girlfriend Kareena Kapoor is her arch rival

The Indian actress, Priyanka Chopra, former Miss World, who has worked with the likes of Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, has described Saif Ali Khan as an ‘incredible’ person and surprisingly she has also praised Saif’s girlfriend and the industry’s ultimate diva, Kareena Kapoor, with whom she is said to have exchanged cold vibes earlier.
Priyanka told the media that she would to love work with Saif at some point in time.
“Something or the other happened and we never ended up working together. I think Saif is an incredible actor and I would love to work with him at some point,” said Chopra.
There were a lot of noises in the air that perhaps Priyanka and Saif don’t have a good equation between which is a reason why both stars never appear together in a film. However, the actress has rejected all reports.
She added, “It was not like we couldn’t work together earlier, there was no such issue. In fact, we were supposed to do two to three films together about two, three years back. But things didn’t work out.”
In the end Priyanka praised Kareena Kapoor as well, who starred opposite to her beau Saif in the film ‘Agent Vinod’, which was recently released on March 23.
Kareena is considered as the most profitable actress of the Bollywood industry currently and Priyanka believes Kareena is worthy of the position she has.
“I respect Kareena as an actor. I think she is a complete actor. Very beautiful and talented and I think she has taken her career very well,” Chopra said.
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor are planning to tie the knot and maybe their much-awaited wedding will take place by the end of this year.

She has recently joined the Rs 100 crore club with the reported box-office success of Don 2 and Agneepath. So, not surprisingly, Priyanka Chopra is in demand in Bollywood. Trade sources inform that the actor has apparently been offered over Rs 5 crore to star opposite Saif Ali Khan in the
“She has been offered several films in the last week. As far as Race 2 is concerned, the makers are keen to sign her for a couple of reasons — one, she has entered the big league with two back-to-back hits and secondly, they need to finalise Deepika Padukone’s replacement quickly,” says a trade insider.

On being contacted, Priyanka says, “I have never discussed my remuneration (in the media), and don’t intend to do so now.”
The makers apparently contacted Priyanka after Deepika informed producer Ramesh Taurani that the Race 2 schedule would clash with the dates she has kept aside for Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

Besides Priyanka, Kareena Kapoor is possibly the only female actor in the Rs 100 crore club with four hit films to her credit — 3 Idiots (2009), Golmaal 3 (2010), Bodyguard (2011) and RA.One (2011).

Ask Priyanka about the new tag and she says, “It feels great when a film does well at the box-office. But when I’m shooting, my first-and-foremost concern is to do my best and leave it at that. My choice of films only has to do with my creative instinct.” This year, Priyanka will be seen in Barfi! with Ranbir and Teri Meri Kahani with Shahid Kapoor.

Over the last month or so, some top brands have also contacted the actor for endorsement deals. “But Priyanka hasn’t had the time. She has already started shooting for Krrish 3 with Hrithik (Roshan) in Hyderabad,” says an insider close to her.

Race to finally end casting woes!
Race 2’s casting woes simply refuse to come to die. To start with, the film was supposed to take off with Sonakshi Sinha, but she opted out claiming that her dates were clashing with Dabangg 2. Jaqueline Fernandes replaced her. Then, Deepika apparently walked out due to date issues with Ayaan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Later, she rejoined the cast and even shot a schedule at Film City. Meanwhile, the makers roped in Sanjay Dutt for a role in the film. And now, Deepika has again opted out due to date issues.

The story that Deepika Padukone walked out of Race 2 to do Yeh Jawani Hain Diwani with Ranbir Kapoor and Ayan Mukherjee is abuzz in the Bollywood circuit. However, Race 2 producer Ramesh Taurani tweeted it was a false rumour. He insisted that the leggy lady was still a part of the Abbas-Mastan film also starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha. But his worst fears came true. Apparently, Deepika couldn’t work out her dates and they desperately began looking for a new leading lady. They went back knocking on Priyanka Chopra’s door who was the first choice to play the role. Initially, when Race 2 sequel was being finalised the producer had spoken to Piggy Chops, but she was busy with Don 2 and turned down the offer. A year later and the filmmakers have landed in the same situation and are just a month away from the shoot. As per a source close to the filmmaker, this time Priyanka is seriously considering Race 2 and working out her dates to accommodate the film. Wethink Dippy preferring to do a film with Ranbir Kapoor over the thriller is a good decision. On the other hand, it will also be great to watch PC join the boys for some thrilling action.

That actress’ Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra aren’t exactly buddies is a rather well-known fact in B-Town. Infact, the two apparently share enough cold vibes to make the distance between them a freeze zone. That both Bebo and PC are actress Shahid Kapoor’s exes now, don’t help things either.

There were ripples again on this calm surface when PC recently dropped by on the sets of Bebo’s beau actor Saif Ali Khan and even spent a considerable time with him. Sources say that PC’s attempt at friendship with the chhote Nawab proved to be a damp squib. “Priyanka’s no nuisance,” Kareena, apparently, laughed off the matter.

However, sources insist that knowing PC, her act was only meant to instigate Kareena. “Luckily she didn’t fall for the bait, but that doesn’t mean that she’s not watching out for her to try it again,” said a source.

Interestingly, Khan’s co-actress Deepika Padukone on the other hand is gaining brownie points as being Kapoor favourite Saif co-star. And those close to the couple reveal that she even talks highly of Deepika. “Though Saif is known to have shared a good rapport with Deepika on sets and the chemistry was also interesting in their last film together, Love Aaj Kal, Kareena knows there’s nothing to worry there. So, she’s pretty comfortable with Saif acting with Deepika again in his next films too. Besides, she’s a professional when it comes to matters like these,” the source added.

“Both look good on screen,” Kapoor had earlier said about Khan;s pairing with Padukone. As for Khan working with Chopra in the future”, she adds, “I am working with other actors and so is Saif. Neither of us has any problems in that.” But when it comes to choosing co-stars, we’re sure that Khan certainly knows the ones to avoid for now
