Filmmaker Ramesh S. Taurani, who was planning to cast Saif Ali Khan in his next project, is now planning to replace him due to financial differences.
Reportedly, while Taurani wanted to pay the actor Rs. 10 crore plus a percentage profit of the film, Saif wanted a remuneration of Rs. 16 crore. Though Saif has confirmed the reports, he has also stated that he could still be doing the film as Taurani has not asked him to opt out. However, he later started singing a different tune by stating that he wanted to give the dates he'd allotted Taurani to a film made under his banner, Illumanati Films and he also added that Ramesh S. Taurani is looking for someone else for his film.
The said film is going to be directed by Mohit Suri and was supposed to go on floors in mid-2014.
