Sajid Nadiadwala, Saif Ali Khan and Kabir Khan team up for political thriller

By Glamsham Editorial

In a first time combination of sorts acclaimed producer Sajid Nadiadwala, director Kabir Khan and the suave Saif Ali Khan have come together for a yet untitled film. Sajid, who has always worked in the commercial genre is going out of his comfort zone for this one because he had faith in the director.

Says Sajid, "I have loved all the three films Kabir has done till now. And I have full confidence in him and I am going with his vision on this. Over and above all I think the journey with him on this film will be interesting. That is most important to me."

The film that Khan will direct for Nadiadwala is a political thriller with a contemporary backdrop. It deals with an issue that has engulfed the entire sub-continent and has ramifications across the world, but the producer is rather tight-lipped about the subject. It may be recalled that all three of Kabir's films have been inspired by a real life international incident. KABUL EXPRESS was about a story of a journalist in Kabul after the fall of the Taliban, NEW YORK was about 9/11, while EK THA TIGER was the story of an Indian spy in love with a Pakistani spy.

His film for Nadiadwala Grandsons is sure to create a lot of excitement and buzz even before it goes on floors owing to the power combination of Saif, Sajid and Kabir who are joining hands for the first time. It doesn't get bigger than this. It is the coming together of a producer who has delivered a 200 crore film (HOUSEFULL), and a director whose last film made over 200 crores. Then there is the Khan factor, who has just had the super successful RACE 2. None of this actor-director-producer trio has worked together in the past. Given their individual success stories this one's sure to be a hit! This ambitious venture is hot from the word go..

The film will be shot extensively in India, Middle East, America and Europe. Kabir has researched extensively for this film, and a lot of attention has been paid to detailing so as to get every nuance right. The film will bring to light the lesser known aspects of Sub continental politics and the players involved in it.

Kabir says, "I have always found Saif to be an exciting actor who has the correct blend of being a credible performer and also having amazing star appeal. Sajid is someone I have always admired for his grand and larger than life productions. My association with him is interesting as it brings together my genre of cinema with his rich production values."
