After taking a break in 2016, Saif Ali Khan seems to be on a film signing spree this year. The actor, who was last seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon, has three films -- Chef, Kala Kandi and Baazaar -- in the bag already. He has also signed Vipul Shah's next film reportedly. And now, he may give his nod to yet another film -- a sequel to his zombie comedy of 2013, Go Goa Gone.
Saif will collaborate with his former partner, Dinesh Vijan, for the film's sequel. Confirming the news, Dinesh told Mid-Day: "Saif and I are talking about a sequel to Go Goa Gone. He is leading the project and the script is now being developed. It'll be produced under Illuminati Films [which he co-founded with Saif]."
The first Go Goa Gone, which also featured Kunal Khemu and Vir Das in lead roles, didn't fare well at the box office but it was highly appreciated. As Dinesh said to Mid-Day, "The humorous dialogues in the original were appreciated by the audience. We are bringing the original cast together for the sequel."

Saif and Dinesh co-founded Illuminati Films and produced the super-hit Love Aaj Kal in 2009. They went on to collaborate on Agent Vinod and Cocktail in 2012, Go Goa Gone in 2013, and two average films -- Lekar Hum Deewana Dil and Happy Ending -- in 2014. Later, they parted ways and Dinesh went on to start his own production house, Maddock Films.
Talking about the rumours of his rift with Saif, Dinesh added, "It ended amicably. We met at work and became good friends. Our friendship has always gone beyond work and we have shared a great bond. He has been instrumental in my growth."
Dinesh stated that it was difficult for them to "meet and bounce ideas off of each other" because of their busy schedules. "But I wished Saif before Rangoon's release and when Taimur (son) was born," he said.
Meanwhile, Dinesh is making his directorial debut with Raabta, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon. Calling it his toughest film till date, he said: “We are having a crazy schedule editing the film, but it's fun.”
