After Rangoon, Chote Nawab Saif Ali Khan is back on celluloid with his upcoming film, Bazaar! While we were still recovering from the hysteria of Salman Khan’s Tubelight teaser, netizens again went into a frenzy when the first poster of Bazaar was revealed this morning. Looking fierce and suave, the actor has donned a salt & pepper look for this Nikhil Advani thriller. All set to hit the theatres this December, Bazaar will be Saif Ali Khan’s third film of the year. Before Bazaar, Saif’s Chef is due for release in July. After failing to ring in the cash registers at the Box Office with Rangoon, Saif hopes to revive his charm with this thriller.
Saif Ali Khan is likely to play a stockbroker in this film, which is said to be based on the dangerous world of stock trading. If rumors are to believed, Bazaar is inspired by the 2013 film, The Wolf of Wall Street. Saif’s character has been inspired by the folklore of the stock market. The first poster of the film has him dressed in a formal business suit, donning a serious and perplexed look. The caption reads, “Yaha paisa Bhagwaan Nahi, par Bhagwaan se Kam Bhi Nahi”. The film is being directed by Gaurav K Chawla, who is said to be a protege of Nikhil Advani.
Bazaar is also the launching pad for Karan Mehra, the son of yesteryear actor, the late Vinod Mehra. Along with Saif, Karan will be seen playing an important role in the film. It was Gaurav Chawla who convinced Nikhil Advani to cast Karan in this film, which is interestingly Gaurav’s directorial debut as well. Karan’s role has been carefully kept under wraps. The name of the leading lady of the film has also been kept a secret.
The film is produced by Nikhil Advani’s production banner, Emmay Entertainment, and Kyta Productions. The shooting has already begun and the film will be ready for release in December. It is being speculated that it might clash with Salman Khan & Katrina Kaif starrer, Tiger Zinda Hai and Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor. However, the date of release is not out yet.
December is going to be a big one! With three big movies booked for the month, this year will end on a high note for sure!
