Saif’s role is not of a Superhero: Milan Luthria

Milan Luthria denies the news of Saif Ali Khan donning the role of Superhero in his next directorial venture.

“No, it’s not a superhero film. Saif is not playing a superhero in my film. People have misinterpreted me and come to the conclusion that I am making a same film like everyone else. All I can say is that it’s an entertaining film with a twist,”

Luthria said.

“The film has all the elements of fantasy. When you have a very good script, it becomes difficult to put it into a particular slot or genre,”

he added.

The movie is still untitled but it is confirmed that it will be produced by Bhushan Kumar.

Describing Saif’s role in the film, Luthria said that

“Saif will be seen playing a role that he has never tried before”, and added that even he is “trying something that I have not attempted before.”

“I have a fantasy element in my film and that’s my trump card. In many ways, I can say that it’s a very Manmohan Desai kind of a film,”

he added.

The leading lady is also not yet casted,

“It’s a very interesting character for the leading lady. I am keen to cast a few actresses, but can’t talk much about them right now.”

Luthria has worked with Saif in the past in his 1999 directorial debut Kacche Dhaage.
