Looks like Saif Ali Khan doesn't want to go on a film signing spree — his last three releases ('Bullett Raja', 'Humshakals' and 'Happy Ending') failed to work at the box-office and there's pressure on him to stage a comeback with his upcoming counter-terrorism drama, 'Phantom'.

Industry insiders suggest the actor has turned down two films that were recently offered to him. A source says, "Saif was approached for a Salman Khan production and another film that Vipul Shah is making. He has said no to both since he wants to concentrate just on Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Rangoon'. He is being choosy and biding his time because his image has taken a bit of a beating with back-to-back flops."

The actor was not available for comment while a source close to Saif explains, "He loved the concepts of both films and the dates are currently being sorted out. At the moment, he is keen on starting 'Rangoon'."
