Without an iota of doubt, Ek Hasina Thi(2004) is an
important milestone in 'Chote Nawab', Saif Ali Khan's career. While
Saif was already a star, Saif Ali Khan 'the actor', grabbed the
eyeballs with his superb yet sophisticated negative act.
Ek Hasina Thi also marked the debut of one of the most
talented new directors, Sriram Raghavan. He justified the faith
reposed in him by the fans (of his brand of cinema) with his
critically acclaimed thriller, Johnny Gaddaar, and gave
the industry a new talent, in the form Neil Nitin Mukesh.
the question on everyone's lips (especially their fans) is whether
the team of Raghavan and Saif will come together again, with their
kind of really 'hatke' cinema. We decided to ask the talented
director himself. And here is the good news! Says Raghavan, "Yes,
we are in the midst of discussions, and once the details are
finalized, a project with Saif Ali Khan may happen sometimes next
Well, here's hoping for the official/formal announcement
