Ticket to fame
The year 2001 was a defining one in Saif's career. He entered Bollywood's A-league with Farhan Akhtar's superhit directorial debut, 'Dil Chahta Hai'. As the hopelessly romantic Sameer, Saif outshone his co-stars as far as comic timing was concerned. His "Woh Ladki Hai Kahan" with Sonali Kulkarni and chemistry with Aamir Khan and Akshaye Khanna were the highlights of the movie.
