Look at Saif's films with Deepika earlier - LOVE AAJ KAL, AARAKSHAN and his films with girlfriend Kareena Kapoor-KURBAAN and AGENT VINOD. It does not take much to infer that for Saif, Deepika has been more dependable than Kareena. The euphoria that has spun out of his latest film COCKTAIL is based on this premise according to some quarters.
According to an industry observer, ''Saif and Kareena's professional story is a big flop. For Saif the fact is that his films with Kareena have never taken a big leap at the box office. While his pairing with other actresses, especially Deepika has been appreciated by his fans and audiences in general.''
Right now, Saif and Kareena have no more films together, which in many ways is the dawn of wisdom for Saif and his girlfriend who have two flops to their credit after pairing together.
While Kareena and Saif continue to be the flop pair on screen, for now the focus shifts on Saif's lucky charm Deepika Padukone. The big question is; will Saif and Deepika's coming together in COCKTAIL mark the making of another big hit?
