The makers of the 2002 hit, Dil Chahta Hai, and actor Saif Ali Khan are teaming up once again on a project. Directed by Reema Kagti, the untitled film will be a romantic comedy, a genre Saif has proven his mettle in, in the past. We’ve also come to know that the heroine’s role will be quite a meaty one, and that top actresses in the industry are vying for it.

A source reveals, “The leading lady in the film will have a substantial role to play, that’s why many A-list actresses want to be part of it. But the makers haven’t finalised the cast yet. Also they have decided to not let out the plot to the public.”

The source adds that the makers are taking some time to decide on the leading lady as they want to be very sure of this casting decision. “The woman’s role is no less than Saif’s. It’s a tough call as the makers not only need someone who will look good with Saif, but also a heroine who can hold her own in the film,” says the source.
