Way back in 1999, they worked together for the first time in Kachche Dhaage. Later, actor Saif Ali Khan and producer Ramesh Taurani teamed up on multiple ventures like Kya Kehna (2000) and Race (2008), and more recently, Race 2. Now, if things go well, Saif and Taurani will come together once

again. When contacted, Saif confirms: “As a producer, Rameshji has a great story sense.
Plus, he is excellent when it comes to production details. I love to work in that environment.” He adds, “At the moment, all I can say is that we are working on the storylines. We have two-three ideas in our minds. Let’s see which one gets finalised.” As for Race 2, which opened this Friday, Saif says that he was on board even before the script was finalised. “They (the makers) took it for granted that I would be part of the film,” says the actor with a smile.
Currently, he is busy with the second schedule of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullet Raja. “It’s nice to work in a film that very rustic in its appeal. You wear clothes and other stuff that’s not very costly, but they make style statements. It feels good. Also, Tigmanshu is a superb director,” says Saif, adding that his character in the movie has nothing to do with Langda Tyagi in Omkara (2006).
