Saif Ali Khan gets inked for the second time, albeit with a twist

When it comes to expressing love for the close ones, Saif Ali Khan is the best. Who can ever forget the tattoo of her wife Kareena’s name that he got done? A couple of years have passed since then, and today, we have an update that the actor is all set with another tattoo on his right hand, albeit with a slight twist. Well, the actor is getting a tattoo of name Shakun which is his character name in his upcoming film ‘Baazaar‘.

Talking about the same to a leading daily, Saif has said, “When Nikkhil (Advani, producer) told me I have to get my character’s name tattooed, I asked him the reason. He told me in small towns, parents get their children’s name inked on their wrists because if they get lost in a mela or elsewhere, people can trace them with the help of the tattoo.” [sic] (Also Read: Shooting of Saif Ali Khan-starrer ‘Baazaar’ kick-starts with debutant Rohan Mehra)

And since the character of Saif will be seen playing a rural character in the film, the makers thought it would be apt to get his character’s name inked on his wrist. His character’s name in the film is Shakun Kothari, who is a stock marketer.

Talking about the film ‘Baazaar’, it will mark the debut of actor Rohan Mehra, who is the son of late veteran actor Vinod Mehra. The film also stars actresses Radhika Apte and Chitrangada Singh playing the female leads. Reportedly, the film is a dark thriller that is set against the backdrop of the stock market.

Directed by Gauravv K Chawla, the film is targeted for a release in the month of December 2017.
