OMG! Will Saif Ali Khan’s Upcoming Film Kaalakaandi Release ONLY On Digital Platforms?

The buzz has created a flutter in the trade circles and a panic of sorts. But why is the film not releasing at cinemas? Find out... has learnt that Saif Ali Khan’s next film Kaalakaandi that was to release in theatres on November 8, might only have an ONLINE RELEASE now.

The decision is being debated over several meetings that have taken place at Cinestaan Film Company, after Chef fell flat on its face on Day 1 of its release, and never recovered. The film managed to make Rs 3-4 Crore over the first weekend, suffering huge financial losses.

Cinestaan Film Company that funded the project has been worried sick. Their earlier funded project was Mirzya, a film that’s box-office collections were nothing to write home about. This time, Cinestaan may not want to take a chance.

This is a big COLLATERAL DAMAGE. The Kaalakaandi news has created a flutter in the trade circles and a panic of sorts. Every actor goes through a rough phase but Saif’’s bad spell at the box-office has stretched a little too long for comfort, producers are worried. Why are his films not working? None of his recent films have clicked. Rangoon (2017), Phantom (2015), Happy Ending (2014), Humshakals (2014), Bullet Raja (2013) and Agent Vinod (2012) haven’t had a happy ending, financially. Race (2013) and Cocktail (2012) did well but unfortunately, the actor lost his way again.

What is the disconnect? Is the Nawab of Pataudi choosing the wrong scripts or is it just a spell of bad luck?

We are sure that Saif is not enjoying it, neither are we and considering his talent, it shouldn’t be long before he bounces back.

Produced by Cinestaan Film Company, directed and written by Akshat Verma, Kaalakaandi would have hit theatres on November 8, under normal circumstances. Now, let’s see what the final call is. A source from the production house, who did not want to be named said, “This buzz is not true. The film will hit theatres.” Wonder why this source spoke only on condition of anonymity.

We sent a long text to Raj Malik, head honcho of Cinestaan but he chose to NOT respond.

Saif too refused to comment.

We don’t feel that his debacles call for desperate measures and hope Cinestaan will give due justice to Kaalakaandi.
