Reports suggest that Saif Ali Khan has been roped in to play the
lead role in an adaptation of a popular Japanese crime thriller. Sujoy
Ghosh who successfully directed 'Kahaani' will helm this project. This
Japanese Crime thriller is actually a novel that released in the year
2005 titled ''The Devotion of Suspect X'.
The novel penned by Keigo Higashino has a very intriguing plot. The
story revolves around a woman that kills her ex-husband because of his
abusive nature. A police investigation that takes place after his body
is found despite tactful covering up, makes up the rest of the story.
Although Saif is said to have a probable entry into this film,
reports haven't been confirmed yet. Details about the female lead are
still under wraps. Saif Ali Khan who was last seen in 'Humshakals',
will soon be seen in a romantic comedy titled 'Happy Ending'. He stars
opposite Illeana D'Cruz in this film.
