The 43-year-old actor, who will be seen in a comic role after a long time, said Kareena challenged him to look more beautiful than his co-star Riteish Deshmukh's female version. Saif, Riteish and Ram Kapoor play triple roles in the Sajid Khan-directed film, releasing on June 20.
"I was initially apprehensive when Sajid (director) narrated the sequence to me, but Kareena made that easy. I took tips from her. She taught me how to pout and do my hair.
She told me that I have to look better than Riteish in drag," Saif said during the promotion of the film here. There is a sequence in the film, where the lead actors - Saif, Riteish and Ram Kapoor - are seen romancing their female versions.
