Saif Ali Khan and his sister Soha Ali Khan will be seen together onscreen for the first time, not in a movie but in a commercial for Asian Paints. Saif Ali has been endorsing Asian Paints for some years now and in the next campaign, reportedly Soha Ali will also be joining him.
Reportedly, the ad film, yet to be shot, will follow the old formula and will have an emotional story line, the work on which is currently been done.
Sources say the commercial could feature the duo reminiscing about their childhood.
This is similar to an advert the same company made with Akshaye Khanna reminicising while looking at a picture of him and his father on a freshly painted wall.

The previous ad for the same company, had Saif Ali Khan getting sentimental about his guitar and hanging it on a freshly painted wall.
Both Saif Ali and Soha Ali Khan were unavailable for comment. Prior to this, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and wife Sharmila Tagore appeared together in various endorsements and in recent times Sharmila and Soha too did a commercial together for Cargill Nature-fresh edible oil.
On the movie front, Saif ’s next film will be Eklavya directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, which is slated for a early next year, while Soha will be seen in Sanjay Gupta’s Dus Kahaniyan.
