Mumbai: With both Siddharth Anand and Kunal Kohli vying for the Saif-Priyanka jodi, chote nawab Saif Ali Khan is in a fix.

Buzz has it that Saif Ali Khan is spending anxious nights on the mere thought of working with Priyanka Chopra in two back-to-back films, who is the arch-rival of his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor. Well, the problem does not end here as both Siddharth Anand and Kunal Kohli are his close friends.

Talking to a news daily on Saif’s dilemma, a source said, “Khan sat down with both his director buddies and told them to select Priyanka for one of the two projects. Kunal and Siddharth both agreed that she should only do the latter`s film with Saif."

Confirming the reports, Kohli said, "Yes, he and I did mutually decide that only one of us should go for the Saif-Priyanka pair. When we realised we were both going to be shooting our films at the same time, I called Siddharth over to my office and we discussed the pairing issue like two mature human beings. And since Saif is signed by both of us, I let him have the Saif-Priyanka pair. I can always work with her some other time."

Apparently, when told about the unusual pairing of Saif and Priyanka, Kohli said, "But why should there be a squabble over stars? Siddharth was my assistant in ‘Hum Tum.’ We go back a long way. His wife Mamta is also a very good friend of my wife and I. I am happy he`s working with Priyanka again (after ‘Anjaana Anjaani’). I am sure I`ll work with her soon."

Hmm…with just one film with Priyanka, Saif might be taking a sigh of relief.
