Kareena Kapoor, who will be next seen opposite Ajay Devgn in Singham Returns feels her actor-husband Saif Ali Khan will be a better cop on screen.

"I think Saif will be the best cop (on screen). I think he will be better than Ajay," Kareena told reporters in Mumbai at the trailer launch of Singham Returns.

Kareena said she hates doing action stuff on screen but in director Rohit Shetty's films she enjoys doing it.

"I hate doing action but in Rohit's film nothing is that difficult. I have been on a car, bike in Golmaal series and now I will be riding auto rickshaw in Singham Returns. I feel safe secured with Rohit," she said.

"I had fun doing this film. Though it was a bit hectic shooting but Rohit made things easy for us," she said.

Singham Returns will be releasing on August 15.
