Saif Ali Khan, quite the expert when it comes to spicing up appearances in films, will be seen as a desi Zombie slasher posing as a Russian in Go Goa Gone.

Aided by a thick accent and slick blonde hair, the actor makes quite an impression in the film's trailers.

Saif, however, has been preceded by many a Bollywood star when it comes to flaunting their blonde-ness on screen.

Here's a look at a few.


Kareena Kapoor
