Saif Ali Khan's last outing 'Phantom' which was a gritty thriller based on a hard-hitting subject, received appreciation from all corners. Buzz is that he has been signed by 'Singh Is Bliing' director Prabhudheva for his next project.
The film which will be produced by Ekta Kapoor, will have Saif playing the lead role. A report in Absolute India says that the untitled film will be the first one from the three films deal that the actor had signed with Ekta Kapoor’s home production Balaji Motion Pictures.
