Looks like Salman Khan is on a promotional spree these days: After urging fans to watch Akshay Kumar’s Rustom next Friday, the Dabangg star has now shared the first look of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Freaky Ali. But here’s the catch: Freaky Ali is helmed by Salman’s brother Sohail Khan.
If there is one actor in Bollywood who could make any character come alive on the screen, it has to be Nawazuddin Sididiqui. After impressing fans and critics alike with Manjhi and Raman Raghav 2.0 this year, he’s back with another blockbuster role, as Freaky Ali in Sohail Khan’s film by the same name.
Sharing Nawaz’s picture, Salman tweeted, “The Freak Nawaz, poor man in the rich man sports who became the game changer #Freakyali”
The first look of the film was released on Friday. The picture has Nawazuddin ditch his usual rustic looks and play a suave golfer. The film traces the story of an extortionist who turns into a star golf player in a bid to win the love of his life, played by Amy Jackson. Arbaaz Khan will also be seen in the film.
Brothers Salman, Arbaaz and Sohaail will launch the first trailer of Freaky Ali on Sunday at a grand event in Mumbai.
“I’ve been practicing the game (golf) for the last one year and it has taught me the virtue of patience. That’s where the concept of Freaky Ali struck me. It was delighting to have wrapped up the film in 40 days with shoots in Mumbai, Delhi and Pune and within a certain budget. This is the first time my production costs have run into single digits,” Sohail said.
The film is slated to release on September 9, 2016.
