According to a DNA report, Saif Ali Khan's upcoming dark comedy Kaalakaandi might also be affected if Padmavati finally releases in January. Personally, I feel it's a good time to have films releasing alongside one another. Speaking about it, Saif said, "It's easy to think that people no longer want to see me in a film".
On personal front, Saif Ali Khan and begum Kareena Kapoor Khan are busy preparing for their little munchkin Taimur's first birthday on December 20th. I get my confidence back every time, irrespective of whether my film works or not. I think they would have wanted to see more food, working in the NY kitchen or the high-pressure job.
"I liked his (Raja's) attempt, it was a little European in flavor, and the drama could be a bit more, and I think he generally avoids drama". I also got some good reviews, but then some things are out of your control.
But yesterday, at the trailer launch event of Kaalakaandi, Saif asserted that there may be some changes in the release date if Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati hits the theatres on January 12.
"I don't think it was even publicised correctly". He feels they could have sold it to be released in another medium. I didn't see enough buzz around the film. Directed by Akshat Verma, Kaalakaandi is a dark comedy starring Saif, Vijay Raaz, Deepak Dobriyal, Shobita Dhulipala, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Isha Talwar, Shenaz Treasurywala, Nary Singh and Akshay Oberoi. He said, "Sometimes, these days, I think people don't want to spend money on marketing".
Before the release of the trailer, the makers unveiled a funky poster of the film which shows Saif, decked in a furry yellow coat, with his hair tied in multiple ponytails and a gun in hand. "But filmmakers are wary about it and you need to take that into consideration", he tells DNA.
