Saif Ali Khan’s fans are quite well aware with the actor’s humour quotient and on-point comic timing. In many films, we have seen Saif charming audiences with his light humour. The actor, who is currently busy shooting for a period drama, will yet again be seen with his funny hat on.

According to recent buzz, Saif Ali Khan will get his quirk on for Anushka Sharma next production. The actress has three films lined up this year. This film will be directed by ‘Delhi Belly’ writer Akshat Verma. As reported by a daily, the film in question has been in the pipeline for more than two years. After a lot of work, the makers have found their film’s leading man, Saif Ali Khan.

The makers were impressed by the actor’s comic timing. The untitled film will see Saif Ali Khan in a whole new different avatar.

Apart from this film, the actress also has two more films lined up; ‘Phillauri’ is one of them. After the success of their dark thriller ‘NH10’, brother-sister duo Karnesh Sharma and Anushka Sharma are back with their second production ‘Phillauri’. The film, that has Anushka and Diljit Dosanjh in playing the leading pair, is a romantic comedy with a lot of “drama and craziness”.

Directed by Anshai Lal and produced by Anushka- Karnesh’s Clean Slate Films ‘Phillauri’ is set against the backdrop of a Punjabi marriage. The film also stars ‘Life Of Pie’ actor Suraj Sharma.

Saif Ali Khan loves being on stage as the singer-guitarist for Parikrama. He was supposed to jam with the Indian rock band at a concert in New Delhi last month. Bu this shooting schedule and trip to the French Riviera didn’t permit him. “I’ve been busy with Agent Vinod. Then I had to air-dash to Cannes. There was just no time for rehearsals,” sighs Saif, who is part of the band’s new gig. “Hopefully, I should be able to make it this month, though we haven’t fixed on any dates yet. It’s been a while since I played in public.”

The actor first performed with the band in the capital on December 18, 2005 at a corporate carnival for a liquor brand he endorses. In 2010, he did a four-city rock concert tour with bands Strings and Parikrama that kicked off in Bangalore on January 18. This was followed by appearances in Mumbai (January 20), Kolkata (January 25) and Delhi (January 27).

A trained pianist and a passionate guitarist, Saif enjoys playing music to a live audience, which prompts the question of whether he will rope in Parikrama for his home production, Agent Vinod that is targeting a December 9 release. Like Salman Khan, who is gearing up for a Ready concert,can we also expect Agent Vinod galas?

“It’s too early to comment on this since there’s almost six months to go for my film to open. But it’s a thought. Maybe I could even shoot a music video with them,” he muses. “I’ve never gone into a promotional overdrive for any of my films. I know that marketing is important, but I believe that if a film is good, it will publicise itself.”
