Apparently, Saif Ali Khan recently walked out of the sets of Dance India Dance complaining about the heat. The actor was visiting the show along with the star cast of Humshakals, including Riteish Deshmukh, Tamannaah Bhatia, Esha Gupta and Ram Kapoor.

Says a source, “Saif remained seated in the vanity van while Tamannaah, Esha and Ram went on the sets and gave bytes to the media. Initially, Saif did not get out of the van because he couldn’t tolerate the heat. In some time, he got out but he heard a murmur on the sets. It seems that someone had said, “Wow, Nawab aa gaya (the prince has come)” which apparently upset him even more. So when the media was about to ask him a few questions, he walked out of the sets and went straight to his car, telling his driver to get going.”
The source adds that it was director Sajid Khan who ran out and got Saif back on the sets. “After this, Saif posed for a few photographs and left,” says the source.
When contacted, Sajid said, “It was too hot on the sets as their air-conditioner wasn’t working. Saif just wanted to wait for some more time in his vanity van.
Besides, he was wearing a suit, so I don’t blame him.” Saif too denied the story. “Why would I get upset if someone called me a Nawab? I just went to the van because it was too hot outside,” was his reply.
