The makers took to Twitter to reveal the first look, where Saif was seen in an intense avtaar as naga saadhu. The film is slated to release on September 6, 2019, and will star Zoya Hussain, Deepak Dobriyal and Manav Vij in pivotal roles.


Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan has impressed us with many distinctive roles in his films and webseries, and after making a mark as a police officer in Netflix's 'Sacred Games,' he is all set to win hearts with his next film 'Laal Kaptaan.'  The makers released his look as a naga sadhu and fans have responded to it positively.

The actor is seen in an intense look with a red tilak, dark eyes with a man-bun and a face smeared with ash. The message on Twitter read, "Raakh se janmaa...Raakh ho jaane ko, 'Laal Kaptaan' (He was born from the ashes only to return to ashes). Hunt begins. September 6." 

Talking about the film, Saif in a statement said, "I even got my ears pierced for the role, which I was worried about initially. My hair has grown a lot. It bothered me throughout summer, when I was shooting in Rajasthan's sweltering heat. It took me 40 minutes to two hours sometimes to just get into hair and make-up for the part." 

Produced by Eros International and Aanand L Rai's production house, directed by Navdeep Singh, the film also features Zoya Hussain, Deepak Dobriyal and Manav Vij. Laal Kaptaan is slated to release on September 6, 2019.
