Saif Ali Khan and Riteish Deshmukh are teaming up for a comedy film. The yet to be titled film will be directed by Sajid Khan. This will be Sajid's second collaboration with Bhagnani after Himmatwala.
"We have finalised Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandes for a comedy film. We have got an amazing star cast in place. We are quite excited about it," producer Vashu Bhagnani told PTI. "It is a different kind of comedy film and completely original," Bhagnani said.
It will be for the first time that Saif and Riteish will act together in a film. Jacqueline has worked earlier in three films - Aladin, Jaane Kaha Se Aayi Hai and Housefull 2 - with Riteish and will be working for the second time with Saif. "We will start shooting for the film this year and release it next year," Bhagnani added.
While Riteish Deshmukh has mastered the art of comedy onscreen in his earlier films, Saif Ali Khan too had done quite a few comedy movies in the past.
