Saif Ali Khan may be flying high in idiomatic terms, but the actor has learnt from experience to stay grounded — both figuratively and literally! Two months ago, while in Jaipur for an ad shoot, a helicopter was arranged to film him at his dapper best for a suiting company. As it turned out, a production hand had falsified documents and the helicopter was flown in without being officially cleared to fly. Arrests were made as a result and, though Saif steered clear of the fracas, a series of inevitable delays led to the late launch of the campaign. Now, finally, a press release has made it to us announcing the association and — expectedly — the helicopter episode finds no mention. Notable though is the Nawab who, as you can see, niftily plays it ‘Saif’ by keeping both his feet planted firmly on the ground!
