- The film also stars Radhika Apte and Chitrangada Singh
Of Baazaar and his character in the film, Saif Ali Khan earlier told PTI: "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."
Produced by Nikkhil Advani, Baazaar was earlier scheduled to release in December last year but will now release in April, this year.
There were reports that Saif's Baazaar is inspired by the Hollywood movie The Wolf of Wall Street but the actor rubbished the rumours. "We are nothing like The Wolf of Wall Street," Saif told PTI.
Saif Ali Khan, who was last seen in Chef, will also feature in Kaalakaandi, which releases on January 12th. Radhika Apte will soon star in PadMan, co-starring Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor while Chitrangada Singh has Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 in the pipeline with Sanjay Dutt.
