Saif's Kaalakaandi to release with Sunny's Poster Boys
The two films are set to clash at the box office on September 8
Saif Ali Khan's Kaalakaandi, which was in making for some time, has finally got a release date. The film is the directorial debut of Delhi Belly writer Akshat Verma, and it is set to release on September 8.
Saif says, "Kaalakaandi is a film I'm very happy to be a part of. Set against the backdrop of Mumbai, the film deals with underworld goons, doomed bankers and idealistic lovers, all mixed together in a karmic tale of love, crime and living a lifetime in one night."
"Akshat has written and directed this unique movie and he is probably the only one who can tell it like it actually is. Mumbai is a crazy, beautiful city and he is captured it perfectly in this very fun and very moving film," he adds.
There were reports suggesting that the makers were finding it difficult to get distributors for the film, post the Rangoon debacle, but it seems that the issue has been resolved. Apart from Saif, the film features other actors such as Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raz, and Kunal Roy Kapoor.
Meanwhile, releasing on the same day will be the Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol starrer Poster Boys, which is remake of a Marathi film. The original film was produced by Shreyas Talpade, who is directing as well as acting in the remake. The Poster Boys team declared their release date as September 8 a few months ago.
Meanwhile Vicky Kaushal’s film Love Per Square Foot, which also stars debutant actress Angira Dhar, is also releasing on the same day. The film is directed by Anand Tiwari and is produced by Ronnie Screwvala.
