- Saif Ali Khan says commercial films are more believable
- Saif will feature as an antagonist in Bazaar
- His upcoming film is Kaalakaandi
Saif Ali Khan will feature as the antagonist (street-smart Gujarati businessman) in Bazaar. Of the film, Saif told PTI: "The intention of Baazaar was to create a human drama against the backdrop of the stock market. My character is like a nasty antagonist. Rohan Mehra (his debut film) is the hero. It is exciting to play strong and powerful roles. I don't distinguish between roles, it is funny. The idea is even if you play bad, if it is well-written, people don't think actors are being evil or nasty," Saif added.
There were reports that Saif's Bazaar is inspired by the Hollywood movie The Wolf of Wall Street but the actor rubbished the claims. The Wolf of Wall Street is a celebration and exploration of the extremes of money and capitalism. So you have a guy who is out of his mind on money and drugs, losing the plot in California, within the law, outside the law, nobody knows. We are nothing like The Wolf of Wall Street," Saif told PTI.
Produced by Nikkhil Advani, the film was scheduled to release in December last year but got postponed. The new release date is yet to be announced.
