Mumbai, Aug 6 (IANS) After “Being Cyrus”, actor-producer Saif Ali Khan is all set to come together with Homi Adajania for a period film. “But not right away. We’ll be doing it next year. I’ll produce a film and it’s not really a period film. It would be a period film, but it won’t feel like one,” Saif told IANS.

“By that I mean it’d be very contemporary in terms of actions and emotions. But in order to make those actions and emotions credible, the plot will be set in the past. Part of my character might have some Thugi traits. But I don’t play a thug, as defined in the history books.”

Saif’s first production venture is titled “Agent Vinod” will be directed by Sriram Raghavan. Saif will star in it with girlfriend Kareena.

“I’d love to make films for Kareena and my sister Soha. But I don’t have to star in all my productions. See, initially the whole idea was to give myself a chance to produce films and do the roles I wasn’t being offered.

“Now when I’m in my first three production being directed by Imtiaz Ali, Sriram Raghavan and Homi Adajania, I don’t mind playing just the producer in future.”

Saif, who featured in this year’s first hit “Race”, will also work in Karan Johar’s movie, which will be directed by Rensil D’Silva.

Another important development in Saif’s life is that his new home, which is much larger and more spacious, is complete.

“It was a big headache, getting proper permissions. I got a wonderful architect Renu Cheniani doing up the place. She had earlier done up my office and I loved what she had done. I needed a larger home. The kids keep coming home to stay.”
