Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 9, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

After starring in Rangoon and Chef this year which didn’t do well at the box office, Saif Ali Khan has once again stepped up and will star in a very different role in his upcoming film, Kaalakaandi. The film marks the directorial debut of Delhi Belly writer Akshat Verma and stars Khan in a quirky role.

On Wednesday, we had a fun chat with Saif Ali Khan at the trailer launch of his upcoming film Kaalakaandi, the film which was earlier supposed to release on September 8 this year. The release date was pushed as Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had demanded over 72 cuts in the film. The trailer, which released a day ago, has a lot of cuss words with a lot of intimate scenes between the onscreen couples. Talking about the film being stuck at the CBFC, Saif revealed how they were wondering whether they should release the film on a digital platform before sending it to Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT). He said, “They (CBFC) said, at one point that it (the film) had over 60 cuts. We actually thought we should sell it to somebody thinking that maybe it would work better on a different platform. But it’s not cool either because we didn’t make it for that platform. So, Cinestaan guys listened to me and we decided to see what FCAT says. They gave us one replacement and a U/A certificate.”

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Unleashing his quirky and unconventional side yet again in this dark comedy is Saif Ali Khan and we received a glimpse of the same in the recently released teaser of Kaalakaandi. The actor will turn a year older on August 16 and just two days before the same, the makers of this film are planning to release the trailer of the film.

As of now, Saif Ali Khan has taken off on a vacation with his family – wife Kareena Kapoor Khan and his son Taimur to Gstaad in Switzerland. However, the actor is expected to be back this weekend, right in time to attend the trailer launch of Kaalakaandi. It seems that director Akshat Verma and the rest of the film’s team thought that having this trailer launch before Saif’s special day will be a great pre-birthday gift for the actor.

The trailer launch, we hear, will have the entire ensemble cast of Kaalakaandi, which includes Vijay Raaz, Sobhita Dhulipala, Akshay Oberoi, Shenaz Treasury, Kunaal Roy Kapur and Deepak Dobriyal. As for the film, it is slated to release on September 8.

Saif Ali Khan and I have similar tastes: Akshay Oberoi on working with the actor in Kaalakaandi

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , on August 3, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Directed by Delhi Belly writer Akshat Verma, the film has Saif and Akshay playing brothers

Akshay Oberoi is teaming up with Saif Ali Khan in his next, Kaalakaandi. Directed by Delhi Belly writer Akshat Verma, the film has Saif and Akshay playing brothers. “It’s a one night story wherein Saif is going through his problems and I am going through mine. As the sun rises, the two of us solve or don’t resolve our problems. There’s also a love story going on, there are gangsters — we don’t necessarily interact with them, but there’s a cause and effect. It’s a crazy Bombay thing, one night’s pagalpan,” explains Akshay.

Akshay, who is sharing the screen space with Saif for the first time, says the latter is the most giving actor on the planet! “Saif is amazing. He has been great to me, absolutely supportive, gives great advice and connects with me every so often,” he says, appreciatively adding, “Saif has had his share of struggle. I know this whole debate (on nepotism) is rife, but he has worked really hard — see how long it took him to get somewhere — he has paid his dues, so he understands somebody in my position,” says Akshay, who made his debut in Isi Life Mein in 2010 and has since then done films like Pizza, Fitoor and Lal Rang, that haven’t done well at the box office. Kaalakaandi will be his big outing with a star.

Interestingly, Akshay has a lot of things in common with the Rangoon actor. “We share similar tastes. It could be because he spent a lot of time in England and I was in the US for the major part of my life. We have the same music tastes, we find similar things funny — our sensibilities are in line. The fact that he chose to do Kaalakaandi it’s incredible. For me, there was no question, it’s a great role and I would die to do it. Saif has so many different commercial things to choose from, but he chose this — I am not saying this is not commercial — but it’s in a different space,” he gushes.

Prod him on the kind of music he and Saif like and he says, “I have been to his house and he has this amazing music system with a record player attached to it. Both of us like Rock and Roll, the ’70s classic rock, Jazz, Blues, etc. We even like the same artistes!”
