'Mobiles is the best mode of communication with the world. It's like a personal computer, and the camera and a friend to talk to in the darkness. But it's not my best friend,' Saif told IANS.

'My phone is....not really a friend, it's rather an extension of me. Just like technology is an extension of our mind, my phone is an extension of me,' added the 44-year-old, who was accompanied at the event by photographer Dabboo Ratnani and singer Aditi Singh Sharma.

With 3.9 mm thin edges and a luxurious metallic hairline, ZenFone 2 provides some incredible specifications including PixelMaster camera, Intel Atom Processor with a sizzling 4GB RAM and a 5.5 inch screen, at an affordable range starting from 12,999.

The launch of the phone, which took place here at Kingdom of Dreams, witnessed a power-packed performance by Aditi, who sang some of her big hits like 'Sooraj dooba hain', 'Dhoom machale dhoom' and 'Offo'.

Asked what keeps him occupied on his phone, Saif said: 'Surf the net, make phone calls, videos, pictures. I like to stay in touch. It's a wonderful device. But quite often I don't take my cellphone out with me. I like to not be controlled by it. So, I leave it at home.'

Is he a gizmo freak?

'No, not a freak. I used to love electronics, when they weren't so readily available, like in the 1980s and 1990s, it would have been really cool to have a video game console, but now they are everywhere. So, I prefer slightly older world now with less gizmos, even though I have them,' he said.
