Saif Ali Khan was last seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon that also starred Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut. Though the film failed to get the cash resisters ringing at the box-office, Saif managed to impress the audience and critics alike with his stellar performance. Saif seems to be very sleective when it comes to the films he is doing. The actor will be next seen in Baazaar. The first look poster of the film was dropped earlier in the morning. In the poster Saif is looking serious and stylish. He is seen sporting few grey streaks and wearing formal attire. The city landscape of Mubai forms the background to this poster, with a slogan ‘Yahaan Paisa Bhagwan Nahi, Par Bhagwan Se Bhi Kam Nahin‘. Late Vinod Mehra’s son Rohan will be making his acting debut with the film.
The film’s director, Gauravv K Chawla, took to Twitter and wrote, “It’s been a long journey, which has just begun! #Baazaar – This December is gonna be all about the Money!! #BaazaarPoster.”
Bazaar has Saif playing a businessman who deals with stocks. The film is rumoured to be a remake of either Michael Douglas’ starrer Wall Street or Leonardo Di Caprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street. ALSO READ: Kareena Kapoor will NOT been seen in Saif Ali Khan’s Chef!
Not many know this, but Hrithik Roshan was first offered the role of Saif’s, and then Akshay Kumar. When both the actors rejected the movie, it was rumoured to be shelved. However, Saif showed interest in the script and that revived the movie. The film will be shot in a start-to-finish schedule from August this year and will hit the theatres in December this year. As for the leading lady, the makers have kept it under the wraps. Since Baazaar is releasing in December, it will have a tough competition from Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s Tiger Zinda Hai and the Sanjay Dutt biopic, which has Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role and is being directed by Rajkumar Hirani.
Saif will also be seen in Chef which is the Hindi remake of a Hollywood film.
