Saif Ali Khan as Writer Yudi
Saif Ali Khan and Ileana D’cruz are the lead actor and actress in Happy Ending. Saif is a writer in the film who is finding his girlfriend in Aanchal.
Well, thumbs up for the lead couple’s casting as Aanchal's role is played by Ileana. This pairing of Saif and Ileana will be seen on the big screen first time.
Kalki as Saif's Girl-friend
Kalki is playing Saif’s clingy ex-girlfriend. She was spotted playing somewhat a similar role of being such a girl-friend of Abhay Deol in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara as well.
Govinda as Director Armaan
Other than them, Govinda and Ranvir Shorey will also be spotted in the pivotal roles.
Govinda as Armaan is a director who is concerned about his stardom that is fading. He looks for a Hollywood styled powerful story that fits as a Bollywood film's script. Yudi comes into his life as the solution of all his problems.
Cameos: Preity Zinta and Kareena Kapoor as Saif's Ex-girlfriends
To make the film a star-studded one, some interesting castings have been done. Those characters are introduced by Preity Zinta and Kareena. They are playing short cameos in Happy Ending film as Saif’s ex-lovers. Preity have shared screen with Saif in Kal Ho Na Ho, Salaam Namaste, and Dil Chahta Hai. The actress amazes to the fact that she had shot her first take with Saif about 16 years ago. Preity feels nostalgia for the days of shooting with Saif.
We all know that Saif and Kareena have been a couple deeply-in-love when it is about their real life. But this time Kareena is playing his ex-girlfriend. Many will wait eagerly to see the chemistry between Saif and Kareena on big screen, and many are supposed to wish for seeing them opposite each- other as lead pair as this movie brings the couple together for a short while only.
Guest Appearance by Saif in His Own Film
Amazingly, Saif is also giving a guest appearance in his own film. He is also playing a bum Yogi, who is a want-to-be rock-star. Philosopher Yogi is mysterious too, who is whether a willing-to-be rockstar or a dude of Big Lebowsky. This character keeps spouting his weird philosophy. He is almost every time there for Yudi when he badly needs his uncalled-for advice.
Earlier this role was supposed to be played by any other artist, but the duo directors believed that Saif will excel in the role. It's always challenging to play double role in a film, but as the star has proved his caliber of fitting in the roles beautifully, it is hoped that the star will not disappoint this time too.
