Reports say that Saif is taking his time to decide as he doesn’t want to act in a two-hero film as it ends up sidelining one of the two and the actor has faced it in Kal Ho Na Ho and has vowed since to never sign a project of this kind.
However, Ajay has tried to convince Saif that the role is a prominent and meaty one.
Recent reports suggest that owing to Devgn’s assurance Saif has said yes to the role and will apparently is now on board in the period-drama.
A source in a leading news daily said, “It took Saif a long time to agree to be a supporting actor. After Kal Ho Naa Ho, he had vowed to never do a two-hero film in which he would have a weaker role. But Ajay has personally assured him that he will have a strong author-backed role.”
But until official confirmation comes from any of the sides, everything remains bleak.
