According to a leading daily, Saif Ali Khan may play a police inspector in Batla House, a film planned by Nikhil Advani on the Batla House encounter which shook the Capital in 2008t. According to a source quoted by the daily, Saif will bring to life the character of inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, who led the encounter against the terrorists but heroically died of his injuries as he wasn’t wearing any bullet proof armour. He was posthumously awarded the Ashok Chakra for his gallantry.
When Saif was asked about it, this is what he said, “We haven’t signed anything yet. We are talking about it. I’m still sinking into Baazaar. Once I get comfortable, we will start talking about it.”
If the project does come into force, then we’ll see Saif in a brand new avatar all right.
