Akshat Verma’s Kaalakandi has Saif Ali Khan in a one-night story



Now it can be told. Saif Ali Khan features in one of the 3 stories that comprise Delhi Belly writer Akshat Verma’s feature-film debut in Kaalakandi. Revealing this, actor Akshay Oberoi who also plays a role in the film says, “Saif and I are cast as brothers in one of the three stories in Kaalakandi. He has a fabulous role. So have I. It’s a story that unfolds in the course of one night. We’ve almost finished wrapping up the shooting. It is a completely wacky film and I loved shooting it.”

Akshay who earlier formed a special bonding with Randeep Hooda when they worked together in Laal Rang, says Saif is the best co-star he has worked with. “We shot our scenes together in a hurry since Saif needed to move on to his next project, a remake of the Hollywood film Chef. I am thrilled to be in the film and to be working with Saif. He's the best co-star I've had yet. Extremely giving as an actor. And Akshat can write dialogues better than some international people. I hope the film is a game changer for me. I've never had more fun playing any part.”

Shedding more light on Akshat’s film Akshay says, “Akshat's film is a bit different than Delhi Belly. It's darker, but still absolutely hilarious. The film has three stories. And it spans one night in Mumbai. It's hard to even give a one-liner of the movie; it's too complex/layered a film. Could be truly path breaking though.”

When asked why Akshat’s film is titled Kaalakandi, Akshay Oberoi laughs, “Now that's something only a mind as wacky as Akshat’s can answer. I think Kaalakandi is a crazy title. And that is what Akshat wanted. The title matches the film’s zany tone.”
