Bollywood’s chotay nawab will be appeared in Bullet Raja next. The filmmaker Kabir Khan is now set to cast Saif Ali Khan in 26/11 Mumbai Attack.
26/11 Mumbai Attack is about counter-terrorism. It is to be written by Hussain Zaidi who is a prominent crime writer and whose scrupulously researched books have earlier been the basis of Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout At Wadala and Anurag Kashyap’s Black Friday.
This would not be the first film of Saif that based on global terrorism. Saif has earlier done Kurbaan which was directed by Rensil D’Silva, in which saif played a terrorist.
“Saif plays a counter-terrorist deputed to tackle a post 26/11 scenario. It’s a kind of extension to Salman Khan’s RAW agent’s role in Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger. But the politics of this film would be far more topical” said a source.
As sources say, Chotay Nawab would be required to undertake remarkable research to get his data on counter-insurgency right.
“It’s a different world for Saif and producer Sajid Nadiadwala. Sajid has only done mass entertainers so far.” said source.
