Shenaz Treasury has now jumped into the nepotism controversy. She posted this picture with Saif Ali Khan on Twitter yesterday and wrote, “Nepotism and I. Hey don’t hate me, my mom was a teacher and dad a shippie. Don’t know how I ended up in this pic (sic).”

The two feature in Akshat Verma’s upcoming dark comedy, Kaalakaandi. Shenaz seemed to be in the mood to have fun at someone’s expense.

Is Kaalakaandi the film Saif Ali Khan has been looking for all this while?

Kaalakaandi is directed by Akshat Verma. He has earlier written the hit film Delhi Belly starring Imran Khan and Bijay Raaz.

Director Akshat Verma says the “unpredictable” ensemble cast, including Saif Ali Khan, of his film Kaalakaandi keeps him on his toes. The film also features actors like Kunaal Roy Kapur, Vijay Raaz, Deepak Dobriyal, Akshay Oberoi, Sobhita Dhulipala, Isha Talwar, Shenaz Treasury, Amyra Dastur and Neil Bhoopalam.

“The most interesting thing about working with an ensemble cast is that every day is unpredictable because all these actors have a different way of working, a different way of approaching their scenes and also a different pace to how they come at it,” Verma said in a statement.

It is indeed a very happy birthday for novelist Vikram Chandra, who turns 56 today. Netflix has announced only a week ago that Saif Ali Khan will play the lead in its original series based on Chandra’s award-winning Sacred Games.

When I met Vikram Chandra earlier this year, he had expressed full faith in the team behind the screen adaptation of his novel. A critically-acclaimed epic delving into Mumbai’s underworld, Sacred Games seems a propitious pick for Netflix.

Chandra spoke fondly of his bestseller. “Sacred Games was about crime. It was based on the SOP of police and went beyond a regular whodunit,” he said.

Kaalakaandi: One of the best movies I’ve been in, says Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Movies with tags , , , on July 21, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Dil Chahta Hai, Delhi Belly, Vicky Donor, Dil Dhadakne Do are all proof that Bollywood does not discourage off-beat movies. New-age films are not something that the Hindi film industry shies away from, having showcased the urban way of life on screen many a times.

Akshat Verma, who wrote the screenplay for the hit Aamir Khan starrer Delhi Belly is returning to the silver screen with his directorial debut Kaalakaandi starring Saif Ali Khan, and the film is touted to be yet another urban spectacle.

Saif Ali Khan Starrer Kaalakaandi’s Teaser Crosses 2 Million Views In Less Than 48 Hours!

Saif Ali Khan’s Kaalakaandi is a dark comedy which sees the actor in a very different avatar!

The Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s last few films have not been able to perform very well. His releases like ‘Happy Ending’, ‘Phantom’ and ‘Rangoon’ could not create a magic at the box-office.

But it seems that the actor’s upcoming project is going to be a hit. Saif Ali Khan is coming up with the film ‘Kaalakaandi’, whose teaser was released yesterday. While the film is a dark comedy, it sees the actor in a very different avatar.

Saif’s look in the film has managed to grab many eyeballs not only of his fans but the industry insiders too. His quirky look in the film has created a stir on all social media platforms. And the curiosity has skyrocketed after the teaser launch. It has managed to leave its audience in anticipation of what is going to happen next.

The teaser of the film is trending on YouTube and has gained more than 2 million views in less than 48 hours of its release!

Saif had earlier explained about the film saying, “It is a very intelligent and a very nice film made at a small budget and hence can be happily made commercial. It is a story about three people of different strata that run across Mumbai. It is the filmy underworld, by that I mean these two underworld boys – played by Vijay Raaz and Deepak Dobriyal, who are involved with the underworld and speak that language. So they have shot that story in a particular way and light. And then they have shot middle-class Mumbai and then a slightly upper-middle-class Mumbai. We are speaking Hindi, Marathi, English… So it is a smattering of what Mumbai is. I am very proud of that.”

Directed by Akshat Verma, ‘Kaalakaandi’ is slated to release on September 8, this year.
