Zahid Khan has been Saif Ali Khan's business manager for quite some time now but if recent rumours are to be believed, the former has just been shown the door. It is being said that two days ago, Saif Ali Khan had a major argument with his business manager, after which the actor fired him.

This is not the first time they have had a fight. Apparently, Zahid Khan wants to be a producer and has been difficult to deal with. Interestingly, Zahid started out as Karisma Kapoor's manager after which he worked as Kareena's business manager as well. Post Kareena and Saif's marriage, he began working as the latter's manager too.

A source from the industry says that Zahid has been trying to co-produce a few projects for a while now. "He would often have an argument with Saif, who gave him a fair share of warnings before he finally decided to let Zahid go," says the source, adding that Zahid has rubbed a lot of directors the wrong way.

"It seems that he had also bought the rights of Jai Ho as he wanted to be the film’s co-producer. Of course, that didn’t materialise," says the source.

Interestingly, Zahid was earlier managing Sonakshi Sinha who has also let him go.
