Saif Ali Khan told in a recent interview, “I am very happy that Kabir approached me for this role. He has made one of the biggest hits of Indian cinema (Ek Tha Tiger), and he could have cast anyone for the film but he chose me… which is a big thing for me. I have a very unusual role in Phantom, so I am quite happy. I want to do some nice, different films and I am enjoying my life.”
Directed by Kabir Khan, Phantom features Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif in lead. The film is slated for April 2015 release.
Kabir Khan, who has earlier directed successful films including Kabul Express, New York and Ek Tha Tiger, will also direct Salman Khan next year for Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
