London, Jul 9 (PTI): Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan, who is gearing up for the release of his latest movie 'Cocktail', says the film has 'everything overseas and Indian audience would love to see.' "The film could connect to rural areas as well," Saif told PTI.
'Cocktail' is a romantic comedy directed by Homi Adajania of 'Being Cyrus' fame and will release world-wide on July 13.
This will be the third time that Saif and Deepika Padukone will be seen together in a film, after 'Love Aaj Kal' and 'Aarakshan'.
The film follows the three main characters, played by Saif, Deepika and newcomer Diana Panty.
When 24-year-old Veronica (Deepika) and Meera, 23, start living together during the summer in London, they have very different agendas. Meera is awkward, introvert and recovering from a hoax marriage to Kunal Ahuja who has duped her off her life-savings by using the pretense of setting up a base for them in London.
She is spending her time under Veronica's roof until she can get some footing and find a job in this foreign land.
Veronica, on the other hand, is a wild-child, impulsive, constantly looking for distractions to escape facing issues of a troubled upbringing. Being poles apart brings the two close, forging a loyal and solid friendship.
Soon Gautam, 32, (Saif) enters their lives, moves in with them and has a whirlwind relationship with Veronica much to Meera's protective disapproval. Meera does not like Gautam because his don't-give-a-damn attitude reminds her of her selfish husband who had conned her into coming to London in the first place.
Both Gautam and Veronica believe in living for the moment and they honestly consider this a fling rather than a serious relationship. But as three people living together they all have a blast... Though their intentions for each other don't change, their friendship starts to grow strong. It becomes a beautifully balanced friendship between three people.
According to Saif, the film is a contemporary story about the interplay between friendship and romantic love and how in the truest sense one really can't exist without the other.
The film was shot in London and Capetown. Asked about his marriage to Kareena Kapoor, Saif said it would be held by this year end.
