Kangana left without a hero

By Ankur Pathak, Mumbai Mirror | Dec 27, 2014, 02.00 AM IST

Kangana left without a hero
Saif Ali Khan is no longer part of Reema Kagti's upcoming film opposite the actress, thanks to a dispute over his pay cheque.

After 13 years, Saif Ali Khan was to team up with his Dil Chahta Hai producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar for a film directed by Reema Kagti. Saif was to play the protagonist, a suave womaniser in the film titled Mr Chaloo. Mirror had reported (June 4) that Kangana Ranaut was cast opposite Saif in the dark comedy. 

But the reunion has been ruined. The actor and the producers have parted ways due to differences over Saif's remuneration. A source told Mirror that studio heads at Excel were of the opinion that after Saif's recent flops - Happy Ending, Humshakals and Bullett Raja - the actor should reduce his fee to make the project economically viable. However, Saif was not ready to budge. 

After weeks of talks, the two parties failed to resolve their differences and the makers eventually decided to look for an alternative for Saif. 

A source close to the development said, "Saif argued that he is getting a certain amount for the Sujoy Ghosh directorial being produced by Ekta Kapoor's production house. The amount offered by Excel was a much smaller number. He couldn't accept two drastically different figures from two rival studios. Excel's offering was way below Saif's market price." 

Ritesh Sidhwani was optimistic about Saif even a few days ago. On December 10, while talking to Mirror about the same issue, he had said: "We have full faith in Saif. He is a very good actor and perfect for the part. We start the film with him in January." 

Clearly things have changed since. "Now, the film has been pushed to March and Kangana, who had given January dates to the film, has allotted a fresh slot. The makers are hoping to get Saif's replacement by then." 

When asked to comment, Saif, who is in Switzerland holidaying with Kareena Kapoor, sent a message that read: "I'm not doing Reema's film anymore."

TIME TO GET THE PRICE DOWN

This actor who was popular once upon a time not so long ago has given two back to back damp squibs at the box-office but he is not willing to cut down his price. His producers are trying their best to negotiate with him and try and see if they can persuade him to bring down his price. But if the actor doesn't show his willingness to change his price, he will face the ignominy of being thrown out of the film.

If that was the reason why Saif is not part of the project then I don't really blame the producers. Saif is basically a flop star now after giving back to back flops since last year. It's time he stops acting like a big shot and reduce his demand because his backbone is not that strong anymore.
