There has been some talk lately about Saif Ali Khan playing a superhero in Bhushan Kumar’s next film, helmed by director Milan Luthria. However, the producer clarifies that his film does not belong to the superhero genre at all. He says that the reason why he signed Saif was because he has a superb comic timing.
Bhushan in fact is not at all a fan of the superhero genre. He says, “Superhero films brings limitations for the makers. My film with Saif is a Manmohan Desai-kind of drama.” The producer also adds that there has been no opportunity between Saif, Milan and he to sit and discuss details about the project.
In fact, Saif had been shooting abroad when he was approached for the film and the actor sent an SMS as a confirmation from his end. Who plays the leading lady is yet to be decided. Bhushan says, “It is not a run-of-the-mill character. The role has a lot of potential.”
