In the pursuit to meet the deadline of his ambitious project, Agent Vinod, which has already eaten into the time put aside for his other big projects, actor Saif Ali Khan is yet to confirm another set of dates for his home production, Go Goa Gone, that has completed its first schedule and should start its second schedule next week.
“Saif has his own commitments. Apart from Race 2, Agent Vinod and Cocktail are his own productions. So he’s trying to allocate dates for each film. My film so far hasn’t been a problem. But it’s true that we’re working dates for the film keeping the other three in mind,” confesses director DK Krishna, adding, “If he finishes a schedule of any of his other films and there is time on hand, we will try to finish his portions for the zombie film.”
Go Goa Gone is a zombie comedy that also features actors Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das. Reportedly the film suffered delays at the very onset following a freaky accident involving Kunal. Also, Saif’s father, former cricketer Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi’s death hampered the schedules.
“We have already shot a schedule in Mumbai. And now we are going to shoot a part in Goa. I agree we stopped filming for a while but it was largely because we wanted the monsoons to get over,” argues Krishna.
The name of the leading lady of the film has been kept under wraps. It was earlier reported that Saif had wanted his sister, Soha Ali Khan to play the part. But so far there are no confirmations. “We’ll announce the name soon,” says Krishna.
“The film doesn’t have a conventional love story. The character is an integral part of the zombie-comedy,” adds Krishna, who plans to release the film by mid- next year.
