She addressed Shah Rukh Khan as ‘Shah Rukh uncle’ when she was an eight-year-old kid playing the role of his daughter in Kuch Kuch Hota hai (KKHH, 1998). Sixteen years later, the 24-year-old wants to act as the 47-year-old’s leading lady.
“I’d definitely love to play Shah Rukh’s heroine,” gushes Saeed, who now no longer calls SRK ‘uncle’. “During KKHH, I was so young that I didn’t even realise that I was working with THE Shah Rukh Khan. And he would pamper me like a kid, taking me in his lap,” adds Saeed.
