Earlier this year, it was reported that Saif Ali Khan had replaced Abhishek Bachchan in an upcoming comedy horror film called Tantrik. In a further and interesting development to the project, Fatima Sana Shaikh of Dangal and Thugs of Hindostan fame has reportedly been roped in to be paired opposite Saif in the movie.
As per a report in Bollywoodhungama, inside sources have revealed that Fox Star Studios have now signed Fatima Sana Shaikh in the said project. However, an official confirmation is still awaited over the matter and so are the details regarding her role in the movie.
Well, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Saif would sure make for an out of the ordinary couple on the 70mm screen. The project is to be helmed by Pawan Kripalani who has previously directed Ragini MMS, Phobia and Darr @ the Mall.
On the film front, Fatima Sana Shaikh was last seen sharing screen space with Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Amitabh Bachchan in Thugs of Hindostan. Despite an ensemble cast headlined by top Bollywood stars, the film failed to impress the audiences and perform at the box office. Her debut movie Dangal, however, was a massive blockbuster.
She would next be seen romancing Rajkummar Rao in Anurag Basu’s yet-untitled project. The shooting of the movie has reportedly already completed its first schedule.
Saif, on the other hand, would reportedly next be seen in Ajay Devgn’s Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior, scheduled to release on November 22, 2019. He would also be seen sharing screen space with debutante Alaia Furniturewalla in Jawani Deewani and recently bagged a role in Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi’s Dil Bechara.
