MUMBAI, JUNE 04 (TNN) After Race has Saif Ali Khan become one of the busiest actors of Bollywood? Nothing like that. On the contrary, Saif is concentrating on his home production and planning new films. Now when all big banners are chasing this Khan to sign him up for their next venture he choses to be selective. He hasn’t signed any film, other than those produced by his own production house.
Surprisingly, though Saif hasn’t signed more films, he doesn’t have time for director and friend Karan Johar who signed him last year for a film to be produced by his Dharma Productions banner. Saif is currently concentrating on his production house and soon he will begin Imtiaz Ali’s next. After that he has Sriram Raghavan’s suspense thriller Agent Vinod followed by Homi Adjania’s next. Saif’s forthcoming list is pretty interesting and that’s why Saif who had signed Karan Johar’s next last year, now will not see daylight till 2010.
According to an industry insider Saif’s dates are blocked till 2010 for his own films and so Karan’s film has to wait. Karan who signed Saif last year was planning to commence shooting this year. Karan’s film will star Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi.
It is believed that Karan’s film requires a specific look which requires more time. Saif who is concentrating more on films to be produced by his home production, doesn’t want his films to be suffer because of the unique look he has to project in Karan’s film. Thus he has decided to complete his films before he starts for Karan’s film.
It is learnt that Karan too has decided to wait rather than replace Saif with some big actor. This is not the first time that Karan has delayed his film for friendship. Prior to this he delayed SRK starrer Khan for Aditya Chopra’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi .
