Saif Ali Khan and Natalie Portman
"I hope I can do romantic films at the age of 50. There is no age for romance. If the story is nice and the character suits you then why not do it. It is not like you can do only action films at a certain age. As long as you look good doing the part, there should not be any problem," Saif said in an interview.
Saif Ali Khan has romanced Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor on screen in the past, but the actor wishes to work with two more gorgeous actresses - Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor, he had told a daily.
When asked to name actresses he wanted to work with, the actor told the daily: "I really want to work with Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif. Though I did work with Kat in Race together. However, I don't think she considers it her work. At the time, she was still finding her feet in the industry."
