Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan had signed Junglee Pictures’s upcoming thriller Click Shankar, directed by Tamil filmmaker Balaji Mohan (Maari). It will also mark Mohan’s Hindi film debut.
As per a report in Peeping Moon, a source revealed, “Click Shankar is a brilliantly written, character-driven subject with a perfect blend of suspense, humour, and emotions. Saif perfectly fits the role and will add an essence of intrigue to the narrative with his sharp charisma and confidence. It’s a role unlike any Saif has played before, and there is no way he could have passed up the opportunity to be a part of this incredibly creative and ambitious project. Saif will begin shooting for this film in May.”
The report states that Click Shankar will follow the story of Shankar Rebeiro who embodies the complex duality of a witty yet troubled inspector grappling with hyperthymesia. This rare condition, a double-edged sword, ensures every moment is etched in his mind. The film becomes a cerebral journey as Shankar navigates a mystery that tests not only his deductive prowess but also confronts the haunting permanence of his past.
Click Shankar is part of Junglee Pictures’s impressive 2024-25 lineup, featuring multiple projects with acclaimed directors like Jeethu Joseph, Meghna Gulzar, and TJ Gnanavel.
Meanwhile, Khan has an action-packed 2024 ahead, with a Netflix survival thriller under Pathaan director Siddharth Anand’s banner. He is also part of Jr. NTR’s pan-India action flick Devara and the investigative drama Kartavya, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.
