Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan, who is ready with his debut production venture Love Aaj Kal, was inspired by Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood to get into the business of making movies.

Saif is a huge fan of the Hollywood legend and is quite fascinated by his work.

"Once, when Saif was reading Clint's interviews, it was mentioned that he was planning to start a production house. When Saif read this, he was quite inspired by it. He was shooting outdoors and in the middle of the night he called up Dinesh Vijan and told him about the whole idea of launching a production house. Saif had worked with Dinesh during his movie Being Cyrus," said a source close to the actor.

Love Aaj Kal is directed by Jab We Met director Imtiaz Ali and stars Saif and Deepika Padukone in the lead.
