Reportedly Pradeep Sarkar who is known for making women-centric films like 'Parineeta', 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' and 'Mardaani' is all set to go offbeat for his next. We hear that the film-maker is quite keen on considering the script of a play, 'Shimla Coffee House' for his next directorial outing. The play, directed by seasoned theatre and film personality Rakesh Bedi, has been garnering good reviews since 2014.
A Deccan Chronicle report quoted a source saying that Pradeep met Rakesh to discuss the script, the outcome of which is yet to be known. If the association does come through, Pradeep is keen on casting Saif in the film.
The daily further quoted a source saying, “Shimla Coffee House is a story of a small coffee joint somewhere on the foothills of Shimla, managed by a waiter called Satish Kashyap. A writer often visits the joint to write his popular series of short stories. During one such visit, he meets an ardent fan who picks out problematic elements in the story. The disagreement escalates into a fight, dragging in the waiter. It’s a psycho-comic drama and depicts the influence of literature on society and vice versa."
Let's wait and see if Saif gives his nod for this film!
