These are exciting times indeed for Saif Ali Khan. While he is all set to be seen in and as AGENT VINOD, he has started work on his other assignments as well. The one that has made to the top of his list is an action thriller which would be based on - hold your breath - a French comic book. He has already procured rights to adapt the book for a film remake and other logistics are fast being put together to bring it on floors. And this isn't all, as there is more to come, since there are strong indications of Anurag Basu directing the film.

''Yes, this film is indeed happening. It would be an intriguing affair since the comic book is set in the business world. This is a lethal combination because in any case Bollywood doesn't bring out many films that have a business background to them and yet follow the action thriller genre,' informs the source, 'Moreover to look at a French comic book for an adaptation would be quite farfetched for many. However Saif was hooked on to the storyline from start to finish and immediately decided to not just act in it but also produce it.''

The film is expected to be mounted on a huge scale and would be co-produced by Saif and 20th Century Fox. Also, there have been preliminary talks with Anurag Basu though he is yet to give his final nod of approval. Since both Saif as well as Anurag are currently busy with AGENT VINOD and BARFEE! respectively, they would be sitting across the table and take a final call in a few weeks from now.

''The role suits Saif to the T since being a suave, sophisticated and business like comes naturally to him. He is happy playing a variety of roles though and after films like AGENT VINOD, COCKTAIL, GO GOA GONE and RACE 2 and JUDWAA 2, this one is going to show him in a different light altogether. Saif can't wait to get started,'' says a close associate.

When contacted, Saif confirmed that the film is definitely on the anvil. He said, ''Yes, this is a great story and if it is done in the right way, it would be something unique. Beyond that it would be premature to talk about the director, cast members and other details. Let's wait for a while for the complete announcement.''
