The trailer of ‘Kaalakaandi’ narrates the life of a man, who hasn’t had any addictions in life but is diagnosed with stomach cancer. The remaining story is about how the actor gives his life a new meaning

After back-to-back releasing Saif Ali Khan starrer, Kaalakaandi’s teasers and posters, the makers of the film have released the film’s official trailer at a private trailer launch event in the suburbs. The film’s trailer takes you to a never-seen-before avatar of Saif Ali Khan. The trailer shows Saif’s character as someone who realises that he is suffering from a deadly disease and how he wants to live his life to the fullest. The character starts living a hippie-life with getting himself involved in drugs, alcohol, and prostitutes. Also, there is an encounter of Saif shown with a transgender prostitute and how they make a narrow escape from the cops.

The poster, which was released on Wednesday morning, sees Saif in his character from the film, in which the actor seemingly looks zonked in his weird hairdo. With a fury shiny yellow scarf, he’s seen opening his arms wide with a gun in one hand and a glass of alcohol in another one, with the outline of the city.

Kaalakaandi‘s teaser poster was released on Tuesday. The colourful teaser poster had a silhouette of the lead actor, Saif Ali Khan resembling Michael Keaton’s ‘Birdman’. Talking about the teaser, which was released earlier, Saif’s character is pretty evident of being on an all-time high nature. Whether the excitement is infused with drugs or it’s his natural vibe, energy; that question can only be answered once the film releases on January 12, 2018.

Akshat Verma, the writer of the cult film ‘Delhi Belly’, promises to take you on another roller-coaster ride with his directorial debut. If ‘Delhi Belly’ exposed Delhi’s underbelly, ‘Kaalakaandi’ will reveal Mumbai’s underbelly and crime imbibed in it. Produced by Cinestaan Film Company and Ashi Dua Sara of Flying Unicorn, the film stars Saif Ali Khan along with the eclectic ensemble of Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz, Kunal Roy Kapur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Akshay Oberoi, Isha Talwar, Shenaz Treasury, Shivam Patil, Amyra Dastur and Neil Bhoopalam in a special appearance.

In an earlier interaction with mid-day, the ‘Chef’ actor had admitted that he badly needs a hit and would want to know what is going wrong (with his career). “It affects my image of being a star, because, a star is supposed to be bankable. Yet, it doesn’t affect my confidence,” admitted Saif.
