That's what people are speculating within the film industry, although both Kunal and Saif are tight-lipped about their new film together. The reasons that prompted Saif to quit the project are
[i] The actor's non-approval of the script
[ii] No clarity about who would produce the project in question.
Kunal Kohli sounded surprised when confronted with this news. "Saif is very much part of my film. He hasn't opted out of the project," Kunal clarifies, "The story is locked. Saif has approved it, so the question of being unhappy with the written material just doesn't arise. We need to finalize the leading lady. Once that is done, we will move on to the next stage of planning the shooting schedules." Kunal reveals that Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision will produce the project in question.
So how did these rumours originate?
"I am clueless. Perhaps, it could be the handiwork of some directors wanting to sabotage the project by spreading malicious rumours. Frankly, we should stop speculating who's in and who's out of any film, till people make formal announcements themselves. Let's put together a project before we start talking about it,"Kunal says.
