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.
However, 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 year."
Well, here's hoping for the official/formal announcement soon.
