Saif Ali Khan’s dilemma Yash Raj Films or Dharma Productions
Saif Ali Khan has given some powerful performances in Being Cyrus and Omkara and he has also had several commercial films to his success. Hence Saif now has to choose his films wisely, this year he has Yash Raj Films Tara Rum Pum opposite co-star Rani Mukherjee and several other big banners are approaching the star. Aditya Chopra from Yash Raj Films has approached him to do another film which is to be directed by Victor. However Karan Johar has also approached the actor for a part in his production to be directed by Tarun Mansukhani. But the problem is that both these films will go on the floors at the same time and Saif has agreed to do both the films. Now the only option for Saif is to choose one of these big banner films, he has to make a choice between Aditya Chopra’s film or Karan Johar’s film.
Saif has had two hits Hum Tum and Salaam Namaste in the Yash Raj camp and he has also given a hit in Karan Johar’s Kal Ho Na Ho, hence he shares a good working relationship with both the production houses. But some time back, Saif was slated to do a role in Dharma Production’s Kaal, but again due to his dates clashing with his other film, he had to opt out at the last minute which left the film’s producers in a lurch. He was replaced with Vivek Oberoi but according to sources director and producer Karan Johar was miffed with Saif for ditching the film at the last minute. Sources also add that Karan was miffed and hence did not take Saif in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. But now it seems that Karan has decided to bury the hatchet and cast Saif once again and the actor will also be seen in Koffee with Karan, second season.
However a source adds “Saif is facing date problems again. He has signed up for both Karan and Aditya’s films. Both these films will be going on the floors around June-July and he will definitely have to opt out of one of the two.” But an important point that Saif will take into consideration is his roles in both the films. And according to sources Saif does not have a very strong role in Karan’s film which may also star Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. Moreover Aditya’s film will co-star Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor and Saif has shared amazing on-screen chemistry with Akki in his past films. However director Tarun Masukhani who is directing Karan’s film refuses to confirm any of the cast members yet. Well let’s wait and watch what Saif ‘s choice is going to be.
