Asked if the film is similar to Delhi Belly, Saif said, “I don’t think so, it’s a little different. You should probably ask him (Verma)... He is a nice director; he writes well but he also teaches you to act well, so I’m excited.”
He also said: “It’s script-reading guys, there’s nothing to get that worked up about. I didn’t know if that is news. It’s very nice, but we’re just reading a script. We do this all the time.” There were reports in April last year that a quirky comedy with which Verma was going to make his directorial debut, was ditched by a production house and actor Anushka Sharma agreed to produce it. Though there are reports claiming that this film starring Saif is the same, it is not confirmed yet.
Actor Akshay Oberoi, who has acted in films like Pizza, Fitoor, Laal Rang and has also done a cameo in Piku, is a part of the film. He said, “Currently rehearsals are going on. The shoot would begin in 1-2 days. So quite excited; it’s a very special film. So it is going to be fun. He’s (Verma) going to make a great film.” Rumours suggest that the film is titled Kala Kaanti.
