2006 Shakespearean drama Omkara was a turning point for Saif Ali Khan. After
playing suave lover boys for years, here he was playing a rustic villain with a
coarse vocabulary and an even coarser appearance.
But Saif’s character, Langda Tyagi, turned out to be the best part of the film that also starred Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Konkona Sen Sharma, Vivek Oberoi and Bipasha Basu.
And now according to reports, Bhardwaj is planning a spin-off of the film which will explore the back story of Tyagi and Saif is on board.

The film is reportedly in its pre-production stage. Along with Bhardwaj, Robin Bhatt and Abhishek Chaubey, who directed Udta Punjab last year, will reunite to pen the script.
This will mark Saif's third collaboration with Bhardwaj after Omkara and the period drama Rangoon which released this year. Saif is currently shooting for Raja Krishna Menon's comedy drama Chef, the official Bollywood remake of Jon Favreau’s hit of the same name.
As Saif gears up to get into the shoes of Langda Tyagi yet again, it will be interesting to see whether any other member of the Omkara star cast will reprise their role in the spin-off. Will we see wife Kareena in the film too. Let’s wait and watch!
