Pradeep Sarkar, who is all set to adapt the play ‘Shimla Coffee House’ for his upcoming film, is allegedly keen to sign Saif Ali Khan in the lead role.

Elaborating on the project, a source told Deccan Chronicle, “Shimla Coffee House is a story of a small coffee joint somewhere on the foothills of Shimla, managed by a waiter called Satish Kashyap. A writer often visits the joint to write his popular series of short stories. During one such visit, he meets an ardent fan who picks out problematic elements in the story. The disagreement escalates into a fight, dragging in the waiter. It�۪s a psycho-comic drama and depicts the influence of literature on society and vice versa.”

Sarkar’a directorial debut, ‘Parineeta’ (2005), also starred Saif Ali Khan. The filmmaker later went on to make ‘Laaga Chunari Mein Daag’ (2007) and ‘Mardaani’ (2014).
