Saif Ali Khan is enjoying a golden phase in his career at the moment. After the global success of his Netflix series Sacred Games, the actor is all set to make a mark with his performance once again in Laal Kaptaan
Saif Ali Khan in ‘Laal Kaptaan trailer’ is all things deadly and gory! The new poster (which was closely followed by a trailer) shows Saif Ali Khan as a fierce Naga Sadhu. The revenge-seeking Naga Sadhu played by Saif went viral on the internet followed by a wave of hilarious reactions. As soon as the first trailer ‘Laal Kaptaan’ dropped on the internet, fans were quick to tag Saif as ‘desi’ Jack Sparrow, referring to Johnny Depp’s iconic character from the Hollywood film ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. From the dreadlocks to the red headscarf and the accessories, the similarities just couldn’t be ignored.

Talking about the physical transformation for Laal Kaptaan, Saif had said in an earlier interview, “I even got my ears pierced for the role, which I was worried about initially. My hair has grown a lot. It bothered me throughout summer when I was shooting in Rajasthan’s sweltering heat. It took me 40 minutes to two hours sometimes to just get into hair and make-up for the part.”
Furthermore, he added, “My part in Laal Kaptaan is that of a person who is an animal at heart a flat-footed wild fellow.”
Earlier, the film was set to hit the theatres on October 11. But now, it will be released a week later on 18 October 2019. The film stars Saif Ali Khan in the lead role.
Saif Ali Khan is an actor who has been pushing the envelope with each of his films. If he surprised everyone with his menacing act in Omkara, he didn’t hesitate to do a black comedy like Kaalakaandi. And now he is returning to the big screen in a new avatar.
Moreover, Navdeep Singh, who has collaborated with Saif Ali Khan for the first time for a film, told an entertainment portal, “‘Laal Kaptaan’ is that kind of film that is definitely going to generate a genre and narrative style of its own.”
