|Moving on from the debacle of Himmatwala, Sajid Khan has started working on his next Humshakal starring Saif Ali Khan and Riteish Deshmukh. After signing Tamannaah and Esha Gupta for the film, Sajid was searching for his third heroine. Apparently, Bipasha Basu has been signed in for the multi-starrer.
As per trade sources, Bipasha Basu has been added to the cast of Humshakal along with Esha Gupta and Tamannaah. Earlier it was said that Saif Ali Khan will romance three hotties in the film, which is a full-on comedy, staying true to Sajid Khan’s style.
When Sajid came up with the idea of the film, he wanted his then girlfriend Jacqueline Fernandez to do it. However, the couple broke up recently, and in order to keep distance decided not to work together. Thus, Sajid got Esha in the place of Jacqueline, and also cast his Himmatwala heroine Tamannaah, with whom he is mighty impressed. Now with Bipasha Basu on board, his hunt for the third actress is over.

Humshakal -- a Fox Star Studios and Pooja Entertainment’s film -- will be produced by Vashu Bhagnani, and both Saif Ali Khan and Riteish Deshmukh will be seen playing triple roles in it. Joining the two actors is the TV actor Ram Kapoor. He too is signed to play triple role in the movie.
Humshakal is a fresh story, and contrary to rumours is not a remake.
