We all remember the heartbreaking story of Uzma Ahmed. An Indian who fell in love with a Pakistani, but her fairy tale turned ugly as soon as she stepped into the neighboring country. Wedding at gunpoint , sexual assaults and subsequent escape to the Indian high commission, Uzma finally returned to India with the help from Union Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj.
Flimmaker Shivam Nair is keen on making a biopic on Uzma
While the film will be a tell-all tale about Uzma's experience, the reports suggests that it will have another angle to it. Confirming the news of the daily, Nair said, "Yes, we are in talks with Saif. We are in the final stages of scripting and then, we will take the final call. Saif will be the main male lead, if he says yes."
The filmmaker said that people are aware about Uzma's story but not many know about the diplomat who helped her in the Indian embassy. And Saif will play the role of the diplomat in the film.
Furthermore, there is a lot of buzz that Ileana, who played Saif's love interest in Happy Ending, might be considered for the role of Uzma.
On the work front, Saif Ali Khan was last seen in Rangoon and Chef this year, both the movies did a fair business at the box office. As for Ileana will be seen opposite Ajay Devgn once again in Raid.
