After playing a police officer in Sacred Games, Saif Ali Khan is set to play a stock market hotshot in Baazaar. The actor, who has been experimenting with various characters onscreen, will be seen in this drama which also stars Chitrangada Singh, Rohan Mehra and Radhika Apte.
Baazaar, which releases today, revolves around the stock market with a mentor-protege relationship as its spine. Set in the backdrop of money, power and business, it shows the rise of the anti-hero.
Speaking about playing a seasoned stock trader Shakun Kothari in Baazaar, Saif told PTI, “There might be a little grace to the character. I think when I was a kid I used to watch Alain Delon movies. He was the best looking guy that’s ever been. This French actor used to play these slightly darker roles but he used to give it a little style and in my head I thought, that’s cool. I’ve always been slightly intrigued by darkness more than the light side of things.”
