Saif Ali Khan has been roped in for Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar's next production Mr. Chaalu. The movie is going to be directed by Reema Kagti.
The movie is supposedly going to have shades of dark humour and after the failure of his slap stick comedy Humshakals, the Nawab definitely prefers this one.
News has it that the Nawab will be essaying the role of a manipulative womanizer in the movie. Saif's character is a smooth operator who will remind the audiences of the kind of roles the actor played in Dil Chahta Hai, Salaam Namaste and Kal Ho Na Ho.
As for the story line we have confirmed news that Saif with his irresistible charm woos women into marrying him and then dupes them. Things go as he wants until he meets Kangana Ranaut who turns out to be smarter than him. Both of them fall passionately in love.
Though it sounds like a con-caper turning into a romantic tale, the producers smilingly tell us, 'there is more to the story'.
The movie will be a comic story and will be extensively shot in Mumbai and Goa. The movie goes on floors from January 15.
