Remember Sanjeev Kumar playing nine roles in the 1974 film 'Naya Din Nai Raat'? Well, Sajid Khan's upcoming film 'Humshakals' has the three lead actors Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor all playing triple roles! To add to the confusion, the characters have the same name too.

Sajid says, "Once I had this idea, I had to develop the screenplay accordingly. It is like when you are solving the Rubik's cube, ultimately you get the right combination and all the nine characters fitted in perfectly in the comedy."
We just hope this time Sajid Khan actually gives us an entertainer unlike his earlier dud 'Himmatwala'.
