Headed for a Dussehra (11th October, 2019) release, the first look of the movie is finally out.

The first look of Laal Kaptaan showcases Saif Ali Khan in a never-seen-before avatar and it is seriously captivating and simultaneously spine-chilling. It features a dialogue, “Har Ram ka apna Raavan, har Ram ka apna Dussehra”, which hints towards the fact that Saif is playing a grey shaded character.
According to reports, Saif is also said to reunite with his Dil Chahta Hai co-star, the ever so talented, Aamir Khan for Vikram Vedha‘s remake. The Hindi remake will be titled “Vikram Veda“.
“Vikram Vedha” draws inspiration from the folk tale of Raja Vikramaditya and the spirit, Betaal, and imagines the tale in more of a modern day interpretation. In the film, Vikram is a top cop in search for a wanted criminal named Vedha. The cop manages to capture the criminal several times through the story, but each time the criminal gives him the slip by distracting him with an interesting new story about his life. The stories also alters the cop’s perception towards his life and duty.
