Mumbai: Zoya Hussain of "Mukkabaaz" fame will be seen alongside Saif Ali Khan in director Navdeep Singh's next untitled film.

Filmmaker Aanand L Rai's home production company Colour Yellow Productions has signed on Navdeep for a film that features Saif in the lead and he will be joined Zoya and actor Manav Vij.

Aanand said both Zoya and Manav are the perfect choices for the roles assigned to them.

"It is an absolute delight to have Zoya Hussain and Manav Vij on board for this film. Both are commendable actors and have a strong grasp over the core of their characters. Their approach towards prep work says it all," he said in a statement.
