Saif walks out
Said to be one of the stylish action-thrillers coming from the stable of Abbas-Mustan, the adaptation of the literary classic 'The Count of Monte Cristo' was all set to roll once Saif Ali Khan was relieved of his prior commitments with other films.
However, now the actor has decided to back out of the film.
Stating it to be a role similar to the characters he plays in the ‘Race’ franchise, Saif made it clear that he would like to experiment with roles keeping the audience's taste in mind.
While he was really excited when the role of the lead was offered to him initially, he revealed that being the kind of person he is, he often gets attracted to such roles innately but on second thoughts, he wanted to do something new and fun.
