Saif Ali Khan’s is back with his flick Bazaar. The poster of his movie got released today.The movie is based on the Indian Stock Market in which Saif looks stylish entrepreneur with shades of grey.
After Rangoon, the next movie expected from Saif Ali Khan was the remake of the Hollywood movie Chef that he was doing with director Raja Krishna Menon. However, in a surprising twist, we get the first poster of Bazaar, a movie that we expected to have been shelved since we didn’t get to hear much developments on this.
Bazaar has Saif Ali Khan playing a businessman who deals with stocks and trading and is rumoured to be a remake of either Michael Douglas’ starrer Wall Street or Leonardo Di Caprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street. I am betting to go with the former, since the poster that came out certainly hints at dark themes, while Leo’s movie was humorous, though in a dark way.
The film’s director, Gauravv K Chawla, took to Twitter and wrote, “It’s been a long journey, which has just begun! #Baazaar – This December is gonna be all about the Money!! #BaazaarPoster.”
The poster has Saif Ali Khan, looking serious and stylish, with grey hairs and moustached look and a cool business suit. He is standing against the silhouette of a boy’s face, who the poster is introducing as Rohan Mehra, the late actor Vinod Mehra’s son. However we did not get any confirmation from Rohan upon this.
The city landscape of Mumbai forms the background to this poster, with a slogan ‘Yahaan Paisa Bhagwan Nahi, Par Bhagwan Se Bhi Kam Nahin‘ (Here the money is not God, but it’s not lesser than God too). This can be the Bollywood equivalent of the iconic Wall Street quaote, “Greed, for the lack of a better word is Good!’
Bazaar is directed by Gauravv K Chawla and is co-produced by Kal Ho Naa Ho and D-Day director Nikhil Advani. As per the poster, the movie is releasing in December 2017, a month that also has Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai and perhaps Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanjay Dutt biopic. As per earlier reports, Hrithik Roshan was first offered the role of Saif’s, and then Akshay Kumar. When both the actors rejected the movie, then Saif was offered the movie. However, Saif showed interest in the script and that revived the movie.
The team of Bazaar has decide to start their shoot schedule from August this year.
