Saif Ali Khan and Kabir Khan might team up again after ‘Phantom’, with a twist?

Filmmaker Kabir Khan is all set for the release of his upcoming film ‘Tubelight’ starring Salman Khan in the lead role. After helming successful films like ‘New York’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, recently it was reported that the filmmaker has joined hands with Amazon India to make a web series based on late freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army. The series has been tentatively titled ‘The Forgotten Army’ and the production is touted to be started by the end of 2017. And now, there’s a latest report related to this project. Reportedly, the filmmaker has approached actor Saif Ali Khan to play the lead character, that of a soldier, in these series.

According to a source quote from DNA, “Saif and Kabir share an excellent rapport, and have been wanting to work together. The series is about the soldiers who worked for the INA more than about Bose. Kabir has discussed the idea with Saif and while he has shown interest, he is yet to sign on the dotted line for the project. But if he does, he will play a soldier from Bose’s troupe.” [sic] (Also Read: Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Chef’ has a new release date, will hit the screens on October 6)

Talking about this project, a source close to Kabir Khan has said, “He has been wanting to make this subject for a long time. He has lived with this project for years as he discovered it during his days as documentary maker.” [sic]

With this project, Kabir Khan will also make his debut in the OTT digital video service space.

Well, it would be quite interesting to see Saif Ali Khan teaming up yet again with Kabir after working together earlier in ‘Phantom’.

Let’s wait for an official confirmation on the same.
