Vidya Balan and Saif Ali Khan are again set to re-create the magic of ‘Parineeta’. The duo has been signed five years after ‘Parineeta’. They will come together in Balaji Motion Pictures’ ‘Dream Sequence’ to be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
Says a source in Balaji, “Initially, Deepika Padukone was to do the role. The casting of the duo together after Love Aaj Kal had its appeal.
But the actress begged off when she heard that the chote nawab was having second thoughts and that Abhay Deol would fill in for him.
However Saif decided to stay with the project after a long discussion with his Omkara director. Meanwhile, with Dippy gone, there was a fresh hunt for the leading lady. Vidya was part of Bhardwaj-produced Ishqiya.
The actress, director and producer are keen to work together in this film and are currently working on the dates.”
This would be Saif’s first picture with Balaji while Vidya is already doing one with them titled, ‘Dirty Picture’.
