Earlier, the horror comedy was titled Tantrik and Abhishek Bachchan was supposed to play the lead role. However, due to some unknown reasons, Saif was roped in.
On a related note, Fatima, who shot to fame with Aamir Khan starrer Dangal was later seen in Thugs Of Hindostan. Despite having an ensemble star cast of Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Amitabh Bachchan, the movie failed to impress audience and critics. The actress will next be seen in Anurag Basu's untitled movie in which she will be romancing Rajkummar Rao. The duo was recently in Bhopal to shoot for the film.
On the other hand, Saif was last seen in Bazaar and has completed shooting for Netflix's Sacred Games 2. He will reportedly be seen in Ajay Devgn’s Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior, which is scheduled to release on November 22, 2019, and also in Jawani Deewani with debutante Aalia Furniturewalla. Saif will also have a special appearance in Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Dil Bechara.
