Actor Saif Ali Khan will be starring in Akshat Verma's upcoming directorial debut.

The actor confirmed the news and said that the movie is very different from Akshat Verma's written 'Delhi Belly'.

"I don't think so. It's a little different. You should probably ask him (Akshat Verma). He is a nice director and he writes well but he also teaches you to act well. So I'm excited," said Saif Ali Khan to IANS.

The actor said that though he is excited about the movie its still too early to talk about it.

"It's script-reading guys. There's nothing to get that worked up about. I don't know if that is news. It's very nice but we're just reading a script. We do this all the time," said Saif Ali Khan.

Earlier it was reported that Akshat's film was scrapped by a production house and actress Anushka Sharma had agreed to produce it. It is reportedly the same film in which Saif stars, however, it is not confirmed yet.

Actor Akshay Oberoi, who has featured in films like Pizza, Fitoor, Laal Rang as well as Piku, will also be a part of the movie.

"Currently rehearsals are going on. The shoot will begin in one or two days. So I am quite excited. It's a very special film. So it is going to be fun. Akshat is going to make a great film," said Akshay.

The movie is reportedly named 'Kala Kaanti'.
