Saif Ali Khan, whose latest film Laal Kaptaan hit the marquee on 18th October, has his plate full with several high-profile projects. After Laal Kaptaan, he will next be seen in his home production Jawaani Jaaneman, followed up by Ajay Devgn’s much-awaited war historical drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior which is slated to enter theatres in January 2020. He also plays the central character in Pawan Kripalani’s forthcoming directorial venture Ghost Police.
The latest we hear that Saif Ali Khan is reportedly set to join forces with the National Award-winning director Vinod Kapri. Kapri has previously helmed Pihu (2018) which went on to clock several awards at various national and international film festivals across the world.
A source close to the development told a popular tabloid that Khan has shown his interest in the project after reading the script, “The story is inspired by true events where a soldier had separated from his regiment in a jungle. The film is a gritty take on how the protagonist manages to navigate his way in the jungle and survives the rough terrain. Saif has heard the plot points and expressed his interest in the project. He has yet to allot the dates.”
Besides the aforementioned films, Saif Ali Khan is also gearing up to headline Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming web series Tandav, a high-octane political thriller set to be directed by hit filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar. Rumours are also rife in the tinsel town of Bollywood that the National Film Award winning actor has also been lined up to play the parallel lead in the Hindi remake of blockbuster Tamil film Vikram Vedha. Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan, who is set to kick-start his next Laal Singh Chaddha, is also playing the female lead in the much-talked-about movie. More updates are awaited.
