There were speculations that Shahid Kapoor and his ex-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor’s husband Saif Ali Khan will soon be sharing screen space in Vishal Bharadwaj’s next. Saif has now confirmed this and said that he is looking forward to working with Shahid.
According to a report published in Pinkvilla.com, at a launch event in Mumbai, when the actor was asked about Vishal Bharadwaj’s next with the ‘Haider’ star, he replied, “Yes, I am looking forward to it. I love Vishal’s films, the way he characterises his actors. I am really looking forward to it.”
Saif Ali Khan has earlier worked with Bharadwaj in the 2006 movie ‘Omkara’, which earned him rave critical reviews for his portrayal of Langda Tyagi. Shahid and Bharadwaj have collaborated twice – in 2009 for ‘Kaminey’ and in 2014 for ‘Haider’ – both being Shahid’s best performances in his acting career.
Interestingly, Shahid Kapoor is also working with Kareena Kapoor in Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Udta Punjab’, for which the shooting is underway in Punjab. The two, however, will not be sharing screen space in the movie.
