Saif Ali Khan and Ekta Kapoor had not been on the best of terms since their project with director Vishal Bhardwaj, Dream Sequence, was put on hold. This happened, reportedly due to Saif’s excessive demands from the makers Balaji Motion Pictures.

However, both the filmmaker and the actor seem to have put their past behind. Ekta has now asked Saif to play the lead role of gangster Manya Surve in her upcoming venture with director Sanjay Gupta titled Shootout At Wadala.

The second in the Shootout series, this film, is based on a true story and being scripted by director Sanjay Gupta and crime journalist turned novelist Husain Zaidi.

A source revealed, “Ekta wants Saif to play the male lead in Shootout part 2. In fact he is the biggest contender for the role right now. However, director Sanjay Gupta wants John Abraham for the same.” This film might just be the mode of patching up between Saif Ali Khan and Ekta Kapoor.
