“While the film is titled Jewel Thief, it has got 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,” revealed a source close to the development, adding further that the shooting has been wrapped up and the film is slated to premiere later this year on Netflix. The film is essentially a heist focusing on the battle royale between Saif Ali Khan and Jaideep Ahlawat.

The film marks the reunion of Siddharth Anand and Saif Ali Khan after doing rom-com’s like Salaam Namaste and Tara Rum Pum. Robbie Grewal of RAW: Romeo Akhbar Walter fame is at the helm of affairs. Earlier, in an interview with Pinkvilla for the promotions of Fighter, Siddharth Anand had given an update on Jewel Thief. The filmmaker had said, “We are doing a fun action film with Saif Ali Khan and Jaideep Ahlawat. It’s a quirky film, and all my energy is directed towards that.”
