Saif Ali Khan and Ramesh Taurani were very thick once upon a time but times have changed. They are said to be, now are in a middle of a tiff because of some remuneration issues. Saif, who still has not been able to shatter records like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan has apparently demanded a whopping amount of Rs. 16 crores for a film that would be helmed by Mohit Suri.
This hasn’t gone down well with Mr. Money bags, Ramesh Taurani as his last offer was Rs. 10 crore. But sources say Saif is not backing off on the demand for the 60% hike. The demand seems rather too farfetched given the Nawab’s last film ‘Bullet Raja’ could not garner much appreciation and was declared a flop at the box office.
If buzz is to be believed then, the search is on for a replacement for Saif in the film. Taurani and Khan have worked together in films like ‘Race’ and ‘Race 2’, while he would still be very much a part of ‘Race 3’, the Taurani’s are not too convinced about keeping him on for Suri’s film. While out Nawab has set to have some big films coming up like ‘Humshakals’ and ‘Phantom’, his plate will have to do without a serving of Suri’s romance flick. After all, it’s a rich man’s world!
