Saif Ali Khan is expected to sign director-actor Tigmanshu Dhulia’s new film ‘Bullet Raja’ which is reported to be an action film set in and around Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. Lucknow and its nearby will serve as the backdrop for Tigmanshu’s mafia film.
Uttar Pradesh has been the flavour of Tigmanshu’s movies. In ‘Sahib Biwi and Gangster’ he had successfully showcased the life and culture of this most populous state. The movie was a sleeper hit of 2011 and it prompted Tigmanshu to make its sequel. The shooting for ‘Sahib Biwi and Gangster’ is finished and the post production work on the movie is in full swing.
By signing Saif Ali Khan in his next movie the director has made people curious whether Saif’s character in ‘Bullet Raja’ will have some similarity with the character of ‘Langda Tyagi’ from ‘Omkara’ which is rated as his best performance till date.
Director Dhulia has categorically denied any possible similarity with ‘Langda Tyagi’. The shooting for ‘Bullet Raja’ will begin in November this year possibly after Saif and Kareena’s marriage.
