Saif Ali Khan’s promising crime thriller ‘Baazaar’ has been delayed from its planned release of December 2017. Buzz suggests that the Gauravv K Chawla project has a few changes to be incorporated due to which, the film may not meet the deadline of 2017 and has been pushed to 2018. Interestingly, this is not the only film of Saif Ali Khan that’s facing a delay. The much talked about ‘Kaalakaandi’ too has not seen the light of the day. The makers are now planning for a complete digital release of ‘Kaalakaandi’, which is directed by Akshat Verma.

Saif Ali Khan has had two big screen releases this year, ‘Rangoon’ and ‘Chef’. Both these films performed poorly at the box office. Moving away from Bollywood, Saif recently bowed out of mini-series based on Subhash Chandra Bose, directed by Kabir Khan. The actor will soon feature in a Netflix original ‘Sacred Games’, with Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane working on the project.

The poster of Nikhhil Advani’s ambitious production Baazaar that released few months ago featured Saif Ali Khan in not just salt pepper look but his shrewd demeanor did give us a sneak peek into his character. Let us tell you that Saif Ali Khan plays a Gujarati businessman in this socio-economic drama and he will also be seen speaking the language in the film.

While Saif had already practiced Gujarati accent for the Sajid Khan comedy Humshakals, the actor maintained that the lessons he learnt then not only made him familiar with the language but also helped him for Baazaar. The actor asserted that he has tried to add justice to his character by adding some more Gujaratiness to it. On the other hand, Saif revealed that his character in the film will be a strong, dark one with a streak of meanness.

Saif Ali Khan further described his character as that of a ruthless businessman who is apparently said to do distasteful things. He expects the audience to receive his character with hatred because according to him, that is how it is supposed to be. Saif Ali Khan, however, confessed that he was a little scared about doing it when he read the script but realized that was exactly what was so beautiful about his role. Saif, who has portrayed grey roles in films like Omkara and Ek Hasina Thi, also reminisced about how he is essaying such a dark character after a long time.

Baazaar, is also said to mark the debut of veteran actor Vinod Mehra’s son, Rohan Mehra and is directed by Gauravv K Chawla. Set against the backdrop of Mumbai’s dynamic and ever-fluctuating stock market, the release date of the film is yet to be revealed.

“It’s a bit early to talk about Baazaar, but I have to say it was very nice getting into that space,” Saif says. “My character is that of a Gujarati businessman. So, again, it’s a different look that I have. I will also have a little white in the hair!” He adds, “There were many lines to learn. I have to go through a lot of pages of dialogues and it’s very interesting and challenging. I thoroughly enjoyed it. ”

Saif’s known to be on good terms with most people in the industry, but unfortunately he ended up having a showdown with Sajid Khan after Humshakals. He even went on record to say that the movie was a mistake. Now, however, he says that he really likes Sajid.

“I really like him, and I hope he’s not upset that I keep saying that I really like him!” smiles Saif. “I would like to say that Humshakals is just another film that didn’t do well, but still made Rs 60 crore.

Is there any real life personality whom you would like to play?

I would love to do a biopic but can’t think of who. There are so many ideas but we are limited. We can’t keep doing films bashing Pakistan, it’s like America making war films against Germany. A real life character like Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar would be great. I would certainly love to play him.
