If this was said in jest, then Saif Ali Khan is clearly not one who’s having the last laugh here as one of Hollywood’s most sought after stars threatens to sue.
Rewind to last week, the Bollywood actor was quoted by the media as saying that he is working on a film project with Oscar winner Natalie Portman, calling it a ‘romcom’ and saying the rest was all hush-hush.
Well, it seems news travelled to the star of ‘The Black Swan’, who was completely oblivious to the fact that such a movie was in the works.
So lo and behold, her legal team got on the phone and threatened Khan with a lawsuit until he tendered a public apology for falsifying information using Portman’s name.
The actor finally backtracked on his comments and admitted that it was all a simple joke.
Taking to Times of India, he was quoted as saying: “It was a joke, I am sorry. It’s just that I am very annoyed with speculations on all the aspects of my life.
“If this goes on, I might just start making up stories like these to entertain myself. Hope people will understand that.”
Right. And Portman needs Khan to do exactly the same by conjuring up speculations on her’s.
