After the much-acclaimed role of Sartaj Singh in Netflix' Sacred Games, Saif Ali Khan's next career choice that has been in the news for a long time is filmmaker Navdeep Singh's Laal Kaptaan (whose working title was Hunter). Saif will be seen playing a Naga Sadhu, out for revenge in the action-adventure drama, that also stars actors Manav Vij, Zoya Hussain, Saurabh Sachdeva and Deepak Dobriyal. While the movie was first scheduled for a September 6 release, it was pushed to October 11 and now, the final date that has been locked in is October 18.

Back in August, the first teaser of Laal Kaptaan was revealed and received some powerful reviews. When quizzed about his role, Saif had said in an interview, "It’s my most ambitious project till date. I don’t think I have been part of a film that has been made on this scale. It’s about a fight between two brothers and my character, who’s almost like an animal, fights for his rights." Saif Ali Khan's Laal Kaptaan Is Not Releasing On September 6 Anymore; Here's Why
