The first look poster of Saif Ali Khan starrer Laal Kaptaan has been unveiled and it looks brilliant. In this Navdeep Singh directorial, Saif will be playing the role of a Naga Sadhu. This film was tentatively called ‘Hunter’ till date and now an official announcement regarding its new title has been made i.e Laal Kaptaan. Since 2018, Saif made all public appearances donning long hair and heavy beard look, all of which were for this film for sure. In addition, several of his photos got leaked as he was busy shooting in the streets of Rajasthan.
Now, Laal Kaptaan makers are over with their surprises and have ultimately unveiled Saif’s look which will give you an instant chill. In this, his half face is shown smeared in ashes and long red vermillion that goes beyond his long locks. His Kohled eyes and intriguing look are both scary and exciting at the same time. This poster shows a man being dragged above Saif’s face.
Below have a look at the poster for yourself:
During the latest sitting with Mid Day, when queried about his character in the movie, Saif shared,
“I play a revengeful Naga Sadhu. He kills a British soldier and wears a bandana to look cool.”
When asked about the striking resemblance with Johnny Depp’s iconic character Jack Sparrow, Saif replied,
“I can’t believe I let that happen. 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.”
The movie is jointly bankrolled by Eros International and Anand L Rai Production. It is slated to hit the theatres on September 6, 2019.
