Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan will be seen essaying the role of a Naga Sadhu in Hunter, Navdeep Singh's tentatively titled tale of revenge. Saif’s look from the film has been leaked and, people can’t stop talking about it. The 48-years-old actor’s look has gone viral on the social media in which he can be seen looking raw and messy like a sadhu. His entire attire and look indicate rawness which is deadly yet scary.
Saif Ali Khan’s Hunter look has obviously made us draw parallels between Johnny Depp and him. The Hollywood actor’s getup in the Pirates Of the Carribean series has been the talk of the town. It is now seen as a yardstick for anyone who wants to look like a pirate.
Navdeep Singh, who directed Manorama: Six Feet Under (2007) and NH10 (2015), has also roped in Mukkabaaz actress Zoya Hussain for the film.
However, R Madhavan had to opt out of the project following his shoulder surgery after he injured himself in the gym. The audience was especially looking forward to the film as it marked a potential reunion between the Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein co-stars after 17 years.
Saif Ali Khan is one actor who is intelligent and aware and therefore he recently admitted that sometimes, his choices don’t necessarily reflect well at the box office and he is okay taking that risk after re-calculating his choices. But inadvertently he is drawn towards playing edgy and dark characters.
He spoke about his character in the film saying his role is that of a Naga Sadhu. The story, which is essentially based against a war backdrop, needed the Sacred Games star to pick up sword fighting and different forms of action. "There’s a lot of post-production and VFX work involved in this project as it will have many war sequences," he elaborated.
Saif confessed having an urge to continuously experiment with his roles and not play safe. But he admitted that the average or low box office collections often make him question his own decisions. "There have been times when I felt that the audience might not want to watch me anymore. But as an actor, I don’t like to do similar-looking roles or films; I’m drawn towards darker, edgier scripts," reported DNA.
Meanwhile, Saif Ali Khan has garnered a lot of appreciation for his web series Sacred Games. His portrayal of a Sikh cop has been lauded by fans and critics alike.
