Balaji Motion Pictures is in advanced talks with Saif Ali Khan to play the lead in the production house’s remake of the Japanese novel The Devotion of Suspect X to be directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The novel was written in 2005 by the Japanese author Keigo Higashino known for penning mystery novels. The third in his Detective Galileo series and his most acclaimed work so far, the novel won the author numerous awards. The story revolves around an abusive husband who is murdered by his ex-wife and daughter and how a neighbour helps them to cover up the murder.
“The film is scheduled to take off in the first half of 2015, once Saif’s dates and that of the other actors who come on board are confirmed,” said a source. While Saif’s Happy Ending releases next month, he has completed Kabir Khan’s Phantom, and has yet to shoot for Reema Kagti’s Mr Chaalu.
