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.

A special song, recently shot for Akshat Verma’s directorial debut featuring Saif Ali Khan, broke all cinematic rules

On Tuesday, the ensemble cast of Kaalakaandi, featuring Saif Ali Khan, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Akshay Oberoi, Shenaz Treasury, Neil Bhoopalam and Sobhita Dhulipala shot for a wild and wacky song, an impromptu addition to the film. Delhi Belly writer Akshat Verma, who is making his directorial debut with the satirical comedy, was keen on a song that would introduce the characters without revealing their identities and welcome the audience into their mad world.

Mumbai is really cinematic: Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

The 46-year-old actor will be seen portraying Rileen in the film.

Actor Saif Ali Khan, who is gearing up for his next film “Kaalakaandi” which is widely shot in Mumbai, says the city has a cinematic vibe to it.

He feels the movie’s director Akshat Verma has shown the city in the film wonderfully.

“I think Mumbai is really cinematic, and Akshat has shown it wonderfully. Bandra particularly has a lot of character and personality. You feel it’s shot in a real place and you feel that instant connect to the place,” Saif said in a statement.

The 46-year-old actor will be seen portraying Rileen in the film.

“Kaalakaandi” is a Marathi slang for when things go disastrously wrong. The film is a dark comedy about life, death and karma.

It also stars Amyra Dastur, Akshay Oberoi, Sobhita Dhulipala, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Deepak Dobriyal, Neil Bhoopalam and Vijay Raaz.

Kaalakaandi: The story of Saif Ali Khan-Akshat Verma’s film, visualised as 8-bit games

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

Ever since the Kaalakaanditeaser released, we’ve been trying to figure out just what the film’s plot could be.

Director Akshat Verma cryptically mentioned that it’s all about ‘what happens one night’. And from the brief glimpses we’ve seen, we imagine it has something to do with Saif Ali Khan’s character navigating one wild adventure after another. Let’s not forget that Verma is the same filmmaker who gave us the pretty crazy Delhi Belly.

Using 8-bit imagery and Saif’s kooky look from the Kaalakaandi poster, here’s a visual imagining of what might be in store for his character.

Here’s Saif’s character, if he was part of the ping-pong ball hit and break-the-brick game ‘Arkanoid’. Who can forget this game, which used to be one hell of a time-killer back in those days of TV video games and even later in PCs! More than a pastime it used to cater to fidgety, anxious souls when there was no WhatsApp and Facebook to distract us.

Saif Ali Khan finally found female lead in Chef

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , on November 20, 2016 by saifalikhanonline

Raman Raghav debutante Sobhita Dhulipala will join Raja Krishna Menon’s Chef as the female lead

It has earlier reported about South actress Padmapriya playing Saif Ali Khan’s ex-wife in the Raja Krishna Menon directorial Chef. Now, we have learnt that Sobhita Dhulipala of Raman Raghav 2.0 fame plays a close friend with a love track between them.

A source in the know reveals, “Sobhita is expected to join the team by December. She recently had a meeting with Raja who is convinced she fits the role perfectly.She starts off as a friend of Saif’s character but later they fall for each other. The film is being shot all over India, from Kerala to Goa, followed by Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab and Delhi, and Sobhita is most likely to join the Delhi schedule.“ Raja, when contacted, confirmed the news, saying, “Her character is loosely based on Scarlett Johansson’s role in the original but it’s a much more evolved character and a much longer role as compared to that.Sobhita, besides being extraordinarily attractive, is a natural when it comes to acting. I wouldn’t go so far as calling it a love angle between Saif and her, but there are insinuations of what could have been between them.

However, I wouldn’t want to reveal which part of the journey she joins him at.“

Chef is an adaptation of the Hollywood Jon Favreau starrer of the same name that released in 2014. However, Raja had earlier told Mirror that it isn’t a complete remake, explaining, “It’s a story I felt I could adapt enough to make it my own. Writers Ritesh Shah, Suresh Nair and I have truly adapted the original. It’s definitely not a remake.“

If memory serves us correctly, the remake of Chef has been in the pipeline for a couple of years now. While the makers had Saif Ali Khan on board since day one, due to several issues the filming couldn’t go on floors sooner. The wait is now over though. The leading ladies of the film have been finalised – southern siren Padma Priya and Miss India 2013 title holder Sobhita Dhulipalia. Team Chef took off for Kerela a few days ago and has now rolled the cameras. It’s going to be a 35 day schedule for the trio.

Moreover, Padma Priya will also be seen in the upcoming Striker alongside Sidharth Malhotra.
