Actor Saif Ali Khan has been shooting for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullet Raja in Kolkata with co-star Sonakshi Sinha. However, not many know that Saif’s sister, actor Soha Ali Khan was instrumental in him being roped in for the film.
After being spotted shooting in Lucknow some time back, Saif Ali Khan was seen waving to his fans during shooting of Bullet Raja at Jagannath Ghat flower market in Kolkata.
It was when Soha was working with Tigmanshu on Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns when the filmmaker told her that he has a script and he wants to cast Saif in it. He asked her if she could arrange a meeting.
“Soha and Dhulia had become friends while doing the film. Dhulia asked her if she could talk to Saif about his script. Saif, too, had asked Soha to tell him about some good directors, because he wants to work with talented directors in his production company,” says a source.
Soha then told Saif about her conversation with Tigmanshu and asked him to meet the director once.
“The filmmaker narrated the script to Saif and the actor agreed to do the film,” adds the source.
