After Amitabh Bachchan, now Saif Ali Khan will also be playing one of the lead in an English classic adaptation. Yes, that's true!
The actor has bagged the lead role in the on screen adaptation of the literary classic 'The Count of Monte Cristo' which is an adventure novel written by French author Alexandre Dumas in 1844.
The classic is based on a man who is a victim of treachery, and while he is on his way to take revenge, the traitors comes across in an island of treasure. Directed by Abbas Mustan, this film will also see Amitabh Bachchan in an important role where he plays a family man who gets trapped into the world of mystery after a murder.
On the other hand, Mustan also revealed that the film will not be an out and out adaptation, but will have the typical Abbas-Mustan touch in the company of their addition of thrills and chills.
Whoa! Seems like quite out-n-out a chilling and thrilling film! We wonder who would be playing female lead opposite Saif here. Any guesses?
