Saif going to play Laffaz in Sudhir Mishra's Chhote Nawab

Talks about 'Chhote Nawab', Saif Ali Khan, playing a 'nawab' on screen have been in the air for a while. But it now appears that the project is taking definite shape as it is being talked about by the people concerned. Things are hotting up at filmmaker Sudhir Mishra's office.

Apparently Saif Ali Khan has liked and approved the project, set around 1857 and has the city of 'nawabs', Lucknow, as the backdrop. If things go according to plans, Saif will essay the role of a 'nawab', who goes by the name of 'Laffaz' (only talks no deeds!). This may well be Saif's second period film after PARINEETA. Sudhir also has in mind his HAZAARON KHWAISHEIN AISI heroine Chitrangada Singh for the role of a dancing girl, Saif's love interest in the movie.

An interesting aspect of the film is that Mishra, who is normally known for small and medium budget ventures, is going for a whopping 50 crore project this time around. He has an interesting title in mind - NAWAB, THE NAUTCH GIRL AND THE JOHN COMPANY!
