We mentioned about Bollywood suave Saif Ali Khan in Akshat Verma's dark comedy and now we have update that amazingly connects Saif Ali Khan with great legends like Rajesh Khanna and the Asian master Akira Kurosawa.

As per our sources close to the unit, Saif Ali Khan's role in Akshat Verma's dark comedy reportedly titled KALA KAANTI is similar to Rajesh Khanna's immortal character Anand Sehgal from Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 1971 masterpiece ANAND.

Our source informs that Saif Ali Khan will play a cancer patient in the film, who goes on an adventurous care free mode to enjoy life at its fullest after coming to know about his disease.

The movie will show Saif Ali Khan trying those things which he has never done before like drinking, smoking, tripping on acid and more..

Interestingly, the theme of Hrishida's master piece bears a leaf of similarity with the father of Asian cinema's brilliant Japanese cult IKIRU where a middle-aged man after learning he has stomach cancer and less than a year to live, tries to find escape in the pleasures of Tokyo's nightlife.

Nevertheless, Hrishida's inspiration is taken as a mark of respect for the Asian master as ANAND has its own remarkable identity.

Similarly, Akshat Verma's film is said to be a dark comedy and according to our source, will have two other stories running similar with Saif's track that includes the love story between Kunaal Roy Kapur and Sobhita Dhulipala and a tale of wannabe gangsters Vijay Raaz and Deepak Dobriyal.

Seems like things are shaping up well for Saif, the actor is enjoying his new fatherhood, anxiously waiting for the response for his role in Vishal Bhardwaj's RANGOON after making heads turn as ‘Lagda Tyagi' in Vishal Bhardwaj's OMKARA.

This amazing connection with Bollywood's first super star and the Asian master is something unique for Saif Ali Khan to race on for long.
