Saif Ali Khan to play comic superhero


By Hindustan Times

After Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan, it is now the turn of actor Saif Ali Khan to play a superhero in Milan Luthria's next film set in a unique comic world.

The film will be produced by T-Series chief Bhushan Kumar.

"We are making a superhero film with Saif Ali Khan and Milan Luthria will be directing it. We are extremely happy about the project and delighted to have Saif and Milan on board," Kumar told PTI.

Saif had earlier teamed up with Luthria for his debut film Kachche Dhaage (1999).

The makers are yet to finalise a leading lady opposite Saif.

"It will be a different kind of a superhero film. We are creating a unique comic world of superhero. It is a comical world," said Kumar.

When asked if the film would be on similar lines as superhero films like RA.One and Krrish, Kumar said, "Our superhero is not like RA.One or Krrish... it is very different. I can't reveal too much."

The film will go on floors in February 2013.
