As per the latest media reports, the makers have also roped in Jaideep Ahlawat to play the antagonist in the film. Touted as a heist film, the upcoming thriller has been titled 'Jewel Thief'.

Jewel Thief is not inspired by Dev Anand's film

While the title may suggest otherwise, the Saif Ali Khan-Jaideep Ahlawat starrer does not take inspiration from Dev Anand's 1967 film 'Jewel Thief', a source close to the makers told Pinkvilla. The source further said that Robbie Grewal, known for 'RAW: Rome Akbar Walter', will be registered under Siddharth Anand's banner for the project. It said, "While the film is titled Jewel Thief, it has nothing to do with the original film starring the legendary Dev Anand. Siddharth Anand had this title registered under his banner and believes that the tile is apt for the subject of this Robbie Grewal directorial."
