Strange things an actor has to do for his movie roles! Yeah, Saif Ali Khan had to befriend horses for his role in the upcoming thriller Race .

In the film Saif plays a rich man whose business is horse racing. Naturally, the actor had to shoot many a scene with the horses and even ride them in a couple of sequences.




But it did not turn out as easy as it sounds. While shooting the film on a ranch in South Africa, the film's unit was in a fix when the horses turned out to be non-cooperative.

While shooting a scene in which Saif had mounted on a horse, when the clapper boy sounded the clapper board before the shot, the horse got scared and turned wild. Thankfully, Saif's equestrian skills came handy and the actor managed to control the animal.

Later, the owner of the ranch suggested the director duo Abbas-Mastan that Saif would need to befriend the horses if they wanted good shots for their film.

Then what, every morning Saif would turn up at the stables, and offer the horses their morning staple, consisting of carrots and grams. The actor would also take the horses for a walk.

Within ten days, Saif had become a friend of the horses. From then on, the shooting progressed without any hiccups.

It may be recalled that even Hrithik Roshan had to befriend a mare named Chandni for his role in Ashutosh Gowarikar's Jodhaa Akbar .
