Filmmaker Ramesh S. Taurani, who was thinking about to cast Saif Ali Khan in his upcoming film, is now planning to change him because of financial issues. Reportedly, while Taurani desired to pay the actor Rs. 10 crore plus a percentage profit of the movie, Saif desired a payment of Rs. 16 crore.
Though Saif Ali Khan has confirmed the reports, he has also mentioned that he could still be doing the movie as Taurani has not asked him to opt out. However, he later started singing a different tune by saying that he desired to give the dates he would allotted Taurani to a film made under his banner, Illumanati Films and he also included that Ramesh S. Taurani is searching for somebody else for his movie.
The said movie is going to be directed by Mohit Suri and was supposed to go on floors in mid-2014.
