Saif turns ‘Action Raja’ with ‘Bullet Raja’
Mumbai: Bollywood Star Saif Ali Khan who came with exuberant youthful entertainer with ‘Cocktail’ is now changing his forte and doing action entertainer. He is experimenting turning ‘Bullet Raja’ under the direction of Tigmanshu Dhulia of ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ fame. Interacting with the media, Tigmanshu said, “My next film will be an action film with Saif Ali Khan. The film is titled ‘Bullet Raja’. The film will go on floors in November and will be shot in and around Lucknow.”
The film is going to be a gang war story with the backdrop of Uttarpradesh and Saif will play a role of a gangster in the film. Some already started speculating whether it will be in way similar to his earlier role Langda Tyagi in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Omkara’. However Dhulia says, “The character in my film is not like Langda Tyagi at all.
Once I only said that when Saif, who is a very urban guy, can carry the role of Langda Tyagi in ‘Omkara’ so convincingly, then he can do any role. So people are drawing my reference in a different way.” Dhulia, who is on high success notes with the good showing of “Paan Singh Tomar”, recently finished the shooting of “Sahib, Biwi Aur Gangster 2″. He will roll the cameras for “Bullet Raja” with Saif starting November.
