Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut were all set to share screen-space in Reema Kagti’s upcoming film ‘Mr Chaalu’. However, Saif decided to let go of the film due to remuneration issues with producers Excel Entertainment. 

Now, Sujoy Ghosh of ‘Kahaani’ fame has signed Saif and Kangana for his next film which will be a Hindi adaptation of the novel ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’.

According to wikipedia, the story of the novel revolves around a wife who kills her abusive husband, along with her daughter. A neighbour helps the two in disposing the body and also plotting the coverup. The rest of the story promises to be edge of the seat intense police investigation drama.

Saif will be playing the investigating officer and Kangana will play the role of the wife who kills her husband and daughter.

The untitled film will be produced by Balaji Motion Pictures.



  • Kangna can rock in these type of roles she is the best
    saif as police officer is ok thank god! they hav not casted abhi or srk

  • I like her becoz she looks different from other heroines who all luks the same
    talking abt movie: good casting,killing abusive hus is fine but daughter?
    Have to watch it

  • Likd kahaani so wil check tis out for sujay and kangna
    in drishyam no family members get killed or does killing

  • Saif ali is 100 times better actor than overrated non actor salman.
    Also when we talk about b.o prospects,Saif ali is much ahead of the so called youngistan.
    Race 2:14.5crs


    Humshakals:11.5crs even with crap director and songs,more than holiday,aj,entertainment,hskd.

    Bullet raja:7.5cr more than badlapur,tevar

    Agent vinod:9.5cr with sriram(badlapur dir)
    Saif is very underrated.

    Only happy ending didnt open well but still it collected more than sidharth’s htp.
    Waiting for phantom

  • Sujoy Ghosh is a brilliant director . He has given a fabulous movie like Kahaani . Kangana is now in the best phase of her career because she is getting incredible characters and good movies . Saif and Kangana will look nice together on screen . I am happy that it is not a love story in which Saif and Kangana are opposite each other . The name of the Novel is just Mindblowing – The Devotion of the Suspect X . I am happy it is not a remake of a Tamil or a Hollywood movie . Making movies based on Novels and Books is better than Remaking movies because most of the people in India don’t read novels or books . Waiting for the title and the official announcement . Expecting another Classic from Sujoy Ghosh . Keep up the good work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • thank god emmy or akki hasn’t been cast as an investigating officer in this film.now there is some chances of this film becoming a hit

  • Thank god. They haven’t casted ..arjun kapoor .. Otherwise disasters like tevar, fanny , aurangzeb , gunday guaranteed …!

  • @indicine: I read that saif would be playing the role of Neighbour of Kangana who helps her in hiding the murder. and, Fawad Khan or Vidyut Jamwal would be the investigating officer?

  • soumya lol
    happy to see the cast…expecting it to be a good thriller.
    saif will rock big time In Sha AllAH…

  • Arjun Kapoor should be cast as the dead husband or daughter and only his dead body should be seen otherwise he will ruin the film with his acting if they showed him alive!!!

    @ArjunKapoorFan DO you agree with me??

  • Waiting for Sujoy Ghosh and his next. His Jhankar Beats remains my favorite Bollywood musical in latest times. All songs in that film were pure gem! Kahani was also a terrific thriller. All the best to Kangana and Ghosh!
