Nothing is finalished yet, and he said it is "too early to talk about" the project.
"I am still scripting the film. Yes, I want Saif to be part of the project and talks are on, but I can't reveal much about the film right now," said Suri, who launched child artist Kunal Khemu as a full-fledged actor in "Kalyug", which also marked debut of his sister Smiley.
When asked why he wants Saif, he said: "Saif is a wonderful actor. Besides, I have never worked with any other Khans before. I always rope in actors who suite the role and Saif is best for the role."
However, the director refused to reveal much about the script, genre or story. "As I said, the project is in its initial stage...let things fall in place, then we can talk about it."
The 31 year-old has also directed "Woh Lamhe" and "Murder 2". His next is "Aashiqui 2".
