Mumbai: Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor are hurt and upset with Ajay Devgn for caricaturing them as buffoons in ‘Toonpur Ka Superhero’. Apparently, Saif and Kareena, who have earlier worked with Ajay, are sulking over his tacky take on the star couple.
Confirming the reports to a daily, a source from ‘Toonpur’ said, “In the film Ajay plays himself, a big star, who turns into a superhero for his son. There`s a scene where he`s shown shooting for his film ‘Omkara’ (which also starred Saif and Kareena). They are part of the scene but their characters have been portrayed in a comic manner. Saif is seen sporting a tattoo of Kareena on his left forearm as he does in real life even though during ‘Omkara’ Saif and Kareena were not dating each other and neither did Saif have any tattoo. It was Ajay`s idea to incorporate some fun elements into the film and make it topical.”
“In ‘Toonpur’ too Ajay`s character is seen making fun of Saif, his tattoo and his love for Kareena while Kareena`s character is a hot chick who is trying to seduce Ajay. Saif`s character is seen sporting sidelocks and goatee, the look Saif had a few months ago,” said the source.
However, their comic portrayal has not gone down well with Kareena and Saif as the source added, “The couple were clueless about their caricatures as nobody had informed them about it. But when someone who saw ‘Toonpur’ last Wednesday told them about it they were shocked! Kareena and Ajay have worked together in the recently released super hit ‘Golmaal 3’ and Kareena had expected Ajay to tell her about it. Even Saif, who considers Ajay a buddy and has worked with ‘Toonpur’ producer Kumar Mangat Pathak in ‘Omkara’, is hurt that nobody bothered to tell him. Right now the couple are keeping quiet. They want to watch the film and then react.”
It seems Ajay’s trick did not work with Saifeena!
