"It was long due for him", says a close associate, "Other than the Khans, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Hrithik Roshan are already in this club while Ranbir Kapoor is
the youngest lot. Now with the entry into the 100 crore club, Saif has finally got rid of the monkey from his back."
"Saif was quite disappointed when Agent Vinod didn't do well last year. In fact he had put his money on the film to be a 100 crore eairner. There was good respite though with Cocktail turning out to be a clean hit. Now with Race 2 doing well too, he has consolidated his position in the big league", adds a source.
However as they, picture abhi baaki hai. The next big target for Saif is to deliver a 100 crore biggie where he is a solo lead.
"His Bullet Raja with Tigmanshu Dhulia follows next while a biggie with Sajid Khan is also in the pipeline. These films feature him as a solo lead should allow him to get there", the associate adds.
We too would love to see the 'Nawab' get there. After all, more the merrier.
