Mumbai: After the average reception of his home production ‘Love Aaj Kal’ at the Box Office, actor-turned-producer Saif Ali Khan is in desperate need of a hit.

And the actor is vying to bag a super hit by approaching filmmakers that have delivered blockbusters with him in the past. So after Vishal Bhardwaj, the dashing actor has now formed an alliance with ‘Hum Tum’ director Kunal Kohli.

As per the latest reports, the two have joined forces yet again and will be soon making a romantic comedy together. Speaking to a news daily, Saif said, “Yes I am doing a film with Kunal. We intend to start the film by the end of this year.”

As for Kunal Kohli, the filmmaker is much too excited to work with one of his favourite stars, “Saif and I have worked together in two films – ‘Hum Tum’ and ‘Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic’. We have decided to make one more romantic film together. It will begin with a short schedule in October and we’ll wrap it up by December or January, “said Kunal.

As for the actor’s role in the film, Kunal stated, “It’s a very interesting film in which Saif plays a rich businessman. He is very stylish and he gets love from the most unexpected quarter. Saif has always been loved in romantic roles, be it ‘Hum Tum’ or ‘Salaam Namaste’ - or even his home production ‘Love Aaj Kal’.”
