Fire: Saif Ali Khan to play firefighter in Excel Entertainment’s next?
Last year, Saif Ali Khan enthralled the audience with two films Jawaani Jaaneman and Dil Bechara. This year the actor is busy with Om Raut’s Adipurush and Bhoot Police. The film also stars Prabhas. Reports are doing the rounds that Saif might be starring alongside Hrithik Roshan in the Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha.
The latest buzz also suggests that Saif will be starring in an action-thriller inspired by true events. Tentatively titled Fire, the film will be bankrolled by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment.
According to the Peepingmoon report, Excel Entertainment’s Fire will be helmed by Rahul Dholakia. The film will apparently revolve around the life of a Mumbai firefighter named Tukaram and how he motivates his team to tackle various SOS calls. Buzz is the film will go on floors after Rahul wraps Taapsee Pannu starrer Mithali Raj biopic.
