The internet received a series of pictures last year where Saif Ali Khan was almost unrecognizable in his character. The fans went curious of what he is up to. The audiences were eager to know the reason of filmmakers choosing such look for Saif Ali Khan. Finally the cat is out of the bag! He will be seeing in an epic action drama Laal Kaptaan and it is going to have a worldwide release on September 6.
The Sacred Games actor came in an interview in Mid Day where it was learned that he had given 2 hours of his days for the makeup. It was not less than a war for Saif Ali Khan going to the shoot on such get-up. He also revealed that they get filmed in heat and mud. He further talks about his character playing the role of a revengeful Naga Sadhu- one of two warring brothers who eventually kills a British soldier and then wears a bandana just because it looks cool. His look as the Naga Sadhu on the sets had already been leaked and people had already started comparing his look to Jack Sparrow. Saif even admitted that his son Ibrahim and Karishma’s son Kiaan felt the same about his new look.
The fact that etched inside our heart is when Saif Ali Khan said by himself that the film is going to create a whole new genre. The wakers had already shared a new promo a few days back and the crowd cannot stop talking over it ever since. The director Navdeep Singh feels confident and has a lot of faith in the film. He said “Laal Kaptaan is that kind of film that is definitely going to generate a genre and narrative style of its own”. The Managing Director of Eros International had shared with the PTI that “Saif is a gifted actor and this script allows him to showcase his talent like never before. Laal Kaptaan boasts of a larger-than-life landscape, dramatic characters and a gripping story that makes it a first of its kind,”
