Saif Ali Khan will reportedly reunite with his ‘Happy Ending’ (2014) co-star Ileana D’Cruz for the Uzma Ahmed biopic.
DNA India reports that the actress will play the role of Ahmed in the ambitious project. Khan is yet to sign the project.
Director Shivam Nair told the publication, “Yes, we are in talks with Saif. We are in the final stages of scripting and then, we will take the final call. Saif will be the main male lead, if he says yes.”
He added, “Along with Uzma’s story, our story is also about a diplomat in the Indian embassy and the Union Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj. The character is of an Indian diplomat who’s there in Pakistan, and how he handles the whole case. When the girl is inside the Embassy, he is the one helping and taking care of her. We only know about Uzma and her story. People don’t know much about the role of this diplomat.”
