The much-awaited trailer of Saif Ali Khan starrer Kaalakaandi released today. In the trailer, Saif is hilarious; be it his dialogues or acting. He proves once again he is so fine when it comes to doing comedy scenes. His funky and cool-dude avatar is the plus point of this funny trailer.

The movie is slated to release on 12th January, 2018. However, Saif cautions that there may be a change of plans owing to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. ‘’If Padmavati comes in (on that day), we will think of shifting our release date. I hope we don’t have to do that. Kaalakaandi is a film I am proud of,’’ Saif told a leading daily.

The actor believes that different films releasing on the same day go on to show the diversity that cinema can offer. He said, ‘’It would have been nice to see Kaalakaandi releasing with Padmavati, as it shows that we have a film industry which makes a different kind of movies. Recently, we saw Secret Superstar and Golmaal Again releasing on the same day and both films did well. Personally, I feel it’s good time to have films releasing alongside one another. But filmmakers are wary about it and you need to take that into consideration.’’

Talking about the failure at the box-office, Said said, ‘’It’s easy to think that people no longer want to see me in a film. But I don’t do that, I get my confidence back every time, irrespective of whether my film works or not. I’ll keep working and hopefully, things will fall into place.''

Talking about Kaalakaandi, Saif had earlier said, "The film is a cross-section of Mumbai with underworld goons, doomed bankers and idealistic lovers all mixed together in this karmic tale about love, crime and living a lifetime in one night!! I truly consider it to be one of my best films and am really forward to the release." 

The movie also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Akshay Oberoi, Isha Talwar, Vijay Raaz and Deepak Dobriyal.

Oh good!! But we dont get the same confidence to keep watching your movies

finally he said the right thing

Yet Bollywood wonders why everyone thinks they are entitled!??

In no other job would a horrid performer be allowed to stay on for years, like 99% of Bollywood has hung on to the last 3 decades

Mr Saif Ali Khan you possess no acting skills
Please do us a favor and quit

It's so sad to see people dissing an actor for a few box office failure and write him/her off the history, even though these actors have given us so many brilliant cinematic moments. Saif Ali khan has been and will always be an amazing performer. Actors will always want to work in movies despite their age or their box office record, otherwise we wouldn't get to see Amitabh Bacchan, Om puri, Nasiruddin Shah anymore.

Saif is a flop actor and has become so boring. If not for nepotism he wouldn't be getting film offers after ten straight flops

Didn't he say the same about Chef? I hope at least he will go out and promote Kaalakaandi. The fact that people are liking him in the trailer shows that audience likes him in quirky roles. I hope he finds his groove.

He is a good actor but his time is up

He is a good young.. But his days are over

Good that you realized it. Please stop making movies and end our torture.

I've been a Saif fan since I was like 3 and saw him in Hum-Saath-Saath... he's still the best part for me in movies, Shahid was sleepwalking through Rangoon, Saif was trying. He's been picking experimental movies, not the kind that would pull huge crowds. If he wants BO, go back to Hum Tum and Kal Ho Na Ho. But these movies, Chef, Kaalakaandi, Baazaar, seem more unique.

Saif is a GREAT actor. Pick another Omkara or Kal Ho Na Ho on either sides of the spectrum, guy. You might not be the main star, but you'll be remembered as the best part.
