We have seen their cameraderie in songs like Daaru Desi, Second Hand Jawaani and Tumhi Ho Bandhu. In the latest Cocktail song, Saif Ali Khan complicates things by romancing both Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty in Jugni.
Jugni is a slow and emotional number, which is quite different from the other songs in the album. While the lyrics of the song is penned by Arif Lohar & Harshdeep Kaur, Arif lohar has composed the song.
Deepika Padukone plays the role of Veronica D'Costa, while Diana Penty who makes her Bollywood debut with the film, plays Meera Gupta. Saif Ali Khan would be seen as Gautam Kapoor.
Though Cocktail looks like an Indianised Veronica-Archie-Betty story, producer Dinesh Vijan denies any resemblance. “Apart from the name Veronica, there’s little in common,” he says.
“His humour in the first half and maturity post-interval gives Cocktail a heady twist. If you loved his sardar avatar in Love Aaj Kal, you’ll love this Dilli flirt too,” he says about Saif.
Visa trouble for Cocktail singers
A group of Pakistani singers who have lent their voices for Saif Ali Khan's Cocktail, were denied visa in India. Terming it unfair, producers Saif Ali Khana and Dinesh Vijan have decided to do away with the music launch.
