Kaalakaandi, a dark comedy starring Saif Ali Khan to release this September!
The writer of Delhi Belly, Akshat Verma, will be making a directorial debut with Kaalakandi starring Saif Ali Khan and Vijay Raaz!
Bollywood fans are always up for decent comedy and even film critics also hang their claws and enjoy comedy films, if they are made right! Delhi Belly is undoubtedly one of the cult-classics in Bollywood cine-history and the writer of this laugh riot, Akshat Verma will be making a directorial debut with Kaalakaandi, starring Saif Ali Khan in the lead role and, it will be produced by Cinestaan Film Company and Flying Unicorn. Though Akshat Verma didn’t reveal anything about the plot of the movie but judging by this first glimpse of Saif Ali Khan in this candid frame, it is more likely to be a dark toned comedy.
Saif Ali Khan was last seen doing comedy in Happy Ending (2014), which though failed at the box office but his double role was appreciated in the film. It would be interesting to how Kaalakaandi being a dark comedys turns out for him. Akshat Verma has been working on this film for quite a long time, post success of Delhi Belly, which is still touted as an ideal mould for any Bollywood dark comedy and it how should be made.
Considering its genre, Akshat Verma chose smart casting of Neil Bhoopalam, Akshay Oberoi, Sobhita Dhulipala, Amyra Dastur and Deepak Dobriyal along with Delhi Belly actor Vijay Raaz, who despite playing a short but negative role gave a memorable performance, and also Kunal Roy Kapoor. The film is scheduled to be released on 8 Sept 2017 in theatres and trailers.
