Saif Ali Khan
Nayandeep Rakshit (DNA; July 3, 2018)

Saif Ali Khan is one of the few Bollywood actors who has managed to pull off zany characters with ease. Next year, he will reprise one such role — Boris, the zombie slayer, who was seen in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s Go Goa Gone (2013). Saif says, “We are doing Go Go Gone 2. It’s an exciting idea and I’ve really liked it. I will return as Boris in the sequel. But this time, I’ll be on a different mission. Raj and DK have found an interesting premise for the second instalment, which is in sync with the first part. They are currently writing the script.”

Quiz him about what prompted him to choose this film and he quips, “Raj and DK have a unique sense of humour. Like the earlier movie, this one, too, will be equally quirky. That’s what drew me to it when they discussed the idea with me.”

The actor reveals that the principal cast remains unchanged. “The other characters played by Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das will also be a part of it. We start filming next January.” Go Goa Gone was one of the first horror comedy films in Bollywood, which fared well at the box office. Saif, who had also co-produced it, says, “People enjoyed it and I’m sure we will entertain them with the second movie, too. If this one also works well, we will have a good franchise.”

According to a source from the team, Raj and DK plan to make two surprise additions to the cast. “There will be another supporting actor as well as a heroine, who will aid Boris in his mission. The casting will be underway in a month’s time. Both the directors want an A-list actress for the role,” adds the source.
