|Saif Ali Khan has established himself as the lover boy on big screen with films like Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail. His film Go Goa Gone doesn’t star him along with a heroine, but the actor’s next, a romantic film, will have a girl whom he has never romanced on big screen.
As the filmmakers nowadays want to cast a fresh jodi for the novelty factor, Saif Ali Khan and directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK were looking for a young pretty actress for their collaboration, which is a romantic film. Now, the makers have reportedly zeroed in on Ileana D'Cruz -- the Barfi! actress.
From what we hear, the movie will be shot in the USA and Saif agreed to produce the film under his banner because he liked the idea of the romantic film. Afterwards, the hunt was on for the leading lady. “Everyone at the production house was of the opinion that they needed a fresh pair with Saif after Cocktail… One of the crewmembers suggested Ileana’s name,” a source tells a daily.
Saif Ali Khan has confirmed the presence of Ileana D'Cruz, but is not willing to reveal much about the project. May be after Bullet Raja, he will switch to this film.
Ileana D’Cruz seems to be on a roll these days. She has already bagged a plum project opposite Akshay Kumar, and now a film with Saif. She will also be seen in Rajkumar Santoshi’s film Phata Poster Nikla Hero where she is paired with Shahid Kapoor.
