Bollywood Hungama exclusively revealed that Saif Ali Khan was approached after Abhishek Bachchan for Fox Star Studio’s Tantrik. Now, there have been many negotiations and back and forth between the studio and the actor but looks like the project is finally moving forward. Inside sources close to the film reveal that the production house has now signed Fatima Sana Shaikh opposite Saif in the said project.
This sure is an interesting development as Fatima and Saif will surely make an unconventional on-screen pair. Details of her role are awaited but by the looks of it, this might just add another layer to the talented newcomer’s career.
Well, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Saif would sure make for an out of the ordinary couple on the 70mm screen. The project is to be helmed by Pawan Kripalani who has previously directed Ragini MMS, Phobia and Darr @ the Mall.
On the film front, Fatima Sana Shaikh was last seen sharing screen space with Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Amitabh Bachchan in Thugs of Hindostan. Despite an ensemble cast headlined by top Bollywood stars, the film failed to impress the audiences and perform at the box office. Her debut movie Dangal, however, was a massive blockbuster.
She would next be seen romancing Rajkummar Rao in Anurag Basu’s yet-untitled project. The shooting of the movie has reportedly already completed its first schedule.
Saif, on the other hand, would reportedly next be seen in Ajay Devgn’s Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior, scheduled to release on November 22, 2019. He would also be seen sharing screen space with debutante Alai
