Saif Ali Khan to romance Ileana D'Cruz in his next
As Bollywood waits for the launch of Saif Ali Khan’s one of a kind movie, “Go Goa Gone” in May this year, plans are already under way about the next romantic flick to be filmed on the actor. The two directors of Go Goa Gone, Raj and DK were very satisfied after working with the actor on this movie. Reportedly, they approached Saif on the sets of Go Goa Gone itself with the script for their next movie.
“It was during the making of Go Goa Gone that directors Raj and DK had spoken about their next project. Saif loved the idea of a romantic film,” a source revealed. The shooting plans were finalized. It was decided that most of the movie will be shot in the USA. However, the part of the leading lady was not decided. “It will be shot in the USA and Saif agreed to produce the film under his banner. However the leading girl was not finalised and everyone at the production house was of the opinion that they needed a fresh pair with Saif after Cocktail. The audience had loved Diana Penty with Saif. One of the crewmembers suggested Ileana’s name,” added the source.
Ileana D’Cruz had taken Bollywood by storm with her measured acting in Barfi. So, when her name was suggested, it seemed that the hunt for the new leading lady opposite Saif was finally over. Ileana will be seen against Shahid Kapoor in “Phata poster nikla hero” which is slated to be released this November. She is currently working in Rana – a telegu film directed by KS Ravikumar.
In the meantime, Saif is awaiting the release of his film Go Goa Gone. The film has already got the “A” certificate that Saif had asked for without any part of the film being cut. It promises to be a unique story with great humour and the new blond look of Saif as Boris the zombie hunter is already a subject of much speculation. Though the subject matter is unique in Bollywood, director Krishna DK maintains that it is still a very Indian film. “It is a very Indian film. GO GOA GONE is about the middle class people who work in call centers etc and their lives. It talks about how people want to freak out at a weekend party in Goa after a strenuous week! " he said.
