Zoya Hussain, who is making her big screen debut with Anurag Kashyap’s film ‘Mukkabaaz’, has reportedly got her second film, ‘Battle Of Buxar’. As the title of the movie is somewhat self-explanatory, it is based on the war of Buxar (a small town in Bengal), which happened in the 18th century. The movie will be helmed by ‘NH10’ director, Navdeep Singh and so far only Saif is roped in as the lead actor. It is reported that R Madhavan might also be seen as the second lead opposite Saif and Zoya Hussain’s name is also making the rounds as the prominent female lead.

A few weeks ago, news broke that Saif has been replaced by Sidharth Malhotra, but clearing the air, a source told a daily, “Saif is still very much a part of the film. He has definitely not walked out or been replaced. He will soon start prepping and shoot for it next year.”

Earlier Saif confirmed the news about signing the film. He said, "Yes there is. It is a little early to talk. We haven't signed it yet. There is a little bit of talk. It is yet to be pen to paper. But in principle, it is very much on but it is a little early to talk. But since you have heard of it, so well ya.”
