Nikkhil Advani's ambitious project Baazaar was in the news for a pretty long time has finally got it's leading man in the form of Saif. Last night, the director of the film Gauravv K Chawla took to Twitter to release the first official poster of the film.
Have a look at it here...
The poster features Saif sporting few grey streaks and dressed up in a formal business suit. It also has an intriguing caption which reads, "yaha paisa Bhagwaan nahi, par Bhagwaan se kam bhi nahi" while Saif is seen gazing into the camera.
The film is touted to be a thriller based in the stock market. Baazaar also marks the acting debut of Late Vinod Mehra's son Rohan.
Earlier while talking to a leading daily, Nikkhil had said, "'Baazaar' is a story of this city (Mumbai). It's a film which likens to a 'Trishul'. But the backdrop is business and share bazaar (market). It's about the city because intoxication of the city drives me crazy.
He further added, "I can't understand why people come into the city and live on sewage, really we're living on sewage. There is no infrastructure. Yet people stay back and stay for long which sparks an instant fire in you. So, 'Baazaar' is a story of two men, one who's made it and one who's trying to make it, how they come together and what they do."
Meanwhile the makers are yet to announce the leading ladies but several names like Nimrat Kaur and Fatima Sana Shaikh has been doing the rounds since a very long time.
