"(Producer) Ramesh Taurani said I'm making a completely different movie this time with a totally different story. I was offered a part but Salman Khan is the best thing to happen to anybody. He's the biggest star in the country," Saif said at a press conference in New Delhi.

"I didn't feel a connection myself with the part I was offered. So, I decided to do something else."

Saif was seen playing a protagonist in Race, which released in 2008 and was also a part of the Race 2 in 2013.

The Phantom actor was here to promote his forthcoming film Kaalakaandi, which will hit the screens on 12 January.
