Newly-wed actor Kareena Kapoor, whose film Talaash, with Aamir Khan and Rani Mukherji releases next week, has revealed that her husband Saif Ali Khan was also offered Talaash.



“Not many know, but Saif too was offered Talaash. Reema (Kagti, director) wanted him in the movie, but his dates didn’t work out. He is really excited that I am part of it,” she says.



About working with Aamir after a gap of three years, Kareena says, “He is a great co-star and a great team player. He makes sure his films turn out well. If I could, I would work in all his films.”



On why Aamir, who goes out of his way to promote his films, has kept an unusually low profile with Talaash, she says, “It’s the first suspense film of its kind and probably that’s why Aamir has not done much to promote it.”



Ask her if she and Saif will be sharing screen space anytime soon and she laughs, “No, I’m leaving him for all the lovely leading ladies. He is allowed to romance them on screen.”
