Saif Ali Khan’s rough-hew avatar in the teaser of his upcoming ‘Laal Kaptaan’
The makers of Saif Ali Khan’s much-anticipated film ‘Laal Kaptaan’ has released the first look teaser of the actor who is celebrating his 49th birthday today.
Must say that Saif is just killing it in a fierce and raugh-hew avatar in ‘Laal Kaptaan’
In the minute-long teaser, Saif is seen as a Naga Sadhu donning the avatar of a demon who is all set to slay this Dussehra. He puts ash on his forehead and says, “Har Raam ka apna Raavan, har Raavan ka apna Dussehra” he says at the camera with an intense look in his eyes.
The first look poster for the film was shared in May. The film was earlier slated to release on September 6 but has since been postponed. The official handle of Eros Now shared the poster and wrote, “Raakh se janmaa…Raakh ho jaane ko #LaalKaptaan #HuntBegins6thSeptember.”
Moreover, Saif’s pictures from the film’s sets in Rajasthan had earlier leaked online. They showed him in a thick beard and dreadlocks which led to comparisons with Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow from The Pirates of Caribbean franchise.
A report quoted him as saying “My nephew Kiaan (Karisma Kapoor’s son] and son [Ibrahim] saw the photographs before they had leaked, and said, ‘Hey, that’s Jack Sparrow.’ The resemblance was because of the jacket and dreadlocks. While filming, I never thought about it. If I did, I wouldn’t have done it. But, everything will make sense when you see the film.”
Navdeep Singh directorial, the movie which also stars Mukkabaaz actor Zoya Hussain and Manav Vij. Saif plays one-half of two warring brothers, in the film that is being touted as a revenge drama.
