Saif Ali Khan to play comic superhero

Mumbai: After Shahrukh 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.

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

When asked if the film would be on similar lines as superheroes like G.One (Shahrukh Khan), Ra.One (Arjun Rampal) and Krrish (Hrithik Roshan), Kumar said, "Our superhero is not like Ra.One or is very different. I can't reveal too much."

The film will go on floors from February 2013.
