Kareena says Saif felt people didn't like him in 'Humshakals' as he has given such good performances in films like 'Omkara'. Kareena says Saif felt people didn’t like him in ‘Humshakals’ as he has given such good performances in films like ‘Omkara’.

Kareena Kapoor says her actor husband Saif Ali Khan is not comfortable doing a slapstick comedy like ‘Humshakals’.

Kareena, 33, thinks Saif is a “brilliant actor” who has taken cinema forward.

“I haven’t seen the film (Humshakals) yet. Of course he made a mistake and he feels that, because people don’t like to see him in that space as he has given such wonderful performances in films like ‘Omkara’, ‘Parineeta’ and others. He has done films that have been path breaking. Saif is one actor who has taken cinema ahead,” Kareena told PTI.

Sajid Khan’s recently released ‘Humshakals’ received flak both from the critics and the public. Saif, who was one of the lead actors in the film, also admitted that he had made a mistake by doing ‘Humshakals’.

“He is such a brilliant actor. So, may be some people thought they did not want to see him in this kind of genre. You can see another actor in this genre but not see someone like Saif. So in that sense he thought it was a mistake,” she said.

Kareena too has done comedy films like the ‘Golmaal’ series, but she says those were not slapstick and they had strong story.

Kareena is now looking forward to the release of Rohit Shetty’s ‘Singham Returns’.

    "He is such a brilliant actor."Kareena, you should be more reasonable before you make such statements.Saif is not brilliant actor. He is atmost a mediocre actor.Don't take bollywood scale to measure Saif.
