Model Diana Penty will be seen playing 'Meera' in the film. Diana makes her debut with 'Cocktail'.
Deepika Padukone was offered both the roles. As she thinks that Meera is very close to the character she played in 'Love Aaj Kal', she chose to play Veronica.
Apart from 'Love Aaj Kal', Saif and Deepika also paired up for 'Aarakshan'. Both the films did well at the box office.
Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty are in the star cast of the film. It will be released on July 13, 2012.
Diana grabbed everyone's attention after the video of 'Tumhi Ho Bandhu' was released. Her sweet smile and effortless dancing is impressive in the song.
'Cocktail' has been produced by Dinesh Vijan and directed by Homi Adajania. Thanks to its music, 'Cocktail' is creating a lot of buzz these days.
Opposite to what everyone thought, 'Cocktail' is not a sequel to Saif and Deepika's 2009 hit 'Love Aaj Kal'. Interestingly, 'Love Aaj Kal' director Imtiaz Ali has written the script of 'Cocktail'.
No wonder, producer Dinesh Vijan calls Saif-Deepika a safe bet. Let's see if his formula clicks again with the audiences or not.
Most of the film has been shot in London. Many popular places of the city can be seen in the backdrop in the trailer.
People's perception about models being bad actors is changing gradually with some of them doing very well in the industry. Let's see if Diana also passes the test.
Saif Ali Khan's character is named Gautam Kapoor in the film. As the producer claims, Saif is the backbone of the film.
The team of 'Cocktail' earlier planned to name it 'Love Aaj Kal 2'. However, apart from Saif and Deepika there is nothing common between both the films, so the idea was dropped.
Deepika says that her character in 'Cocktail' is very different from what she has played onscreen so far. She lately revealed that she is getting great response for her bold avatar in the film.
'Cocktail' is a love story, but it is also about friendship, betrayal, fun and trust.
There are two female characters in the film named Veronica and Meera. Veronica is an outgoing, bold girl, while Meera plays a homely Indian girl in the film.
Gautam's comedy before the interval and maturity in dealing with the tough time forms the strength of his character.
So watch out for Gautam, Veronica and Meera on July 13, 2012.
Youthful and peppy music of the film has added to its popularity. Thumbs up to the music composer Pritam once again.
A known name in the modelling world, Diana is a pass out from the St Xavier's College, Mumbai.
However, not many know that Diana was scared of dancing before the shooting. She took dance lessons to excel in the art.
After 'Love Aaj Kal', Saif Ali Khan will be seen romancing Deepika Padukone again in forthcoming film 'Cocktail'.
