Saif Ali Khan has unveiled the teaser of his upcoming film, Akshat Verma's Kaalakaandi. While the teaser transports us to a familiar dark world, Saif is at his unfamiliar best.

Saif's look from the film which is quirky to say the least. Saif is seen sporting a crisp white shirt but it is the accessories that lend quirk to the picture.

He is wearing three accessories - hairbands of a myriad range of colours, a yellow shrug and bruises on his eyes. While his expression is grim, his getup is comic. This contrast is what makes his look immensely fascinating.

This look makes the viewers revisit Saif's look from Raj and DK's 2013 zombie comedy Go Goa Gone. In that film, Saif played a zombie hunter, who had a loaded gun by his side at all times.

But his blonde hairstyle made his character come across as rather caricaturish. Since Verma is the writer of the 2011 film Delhi Belly, known for its toilet humour, Saif is all set for a quirky collaboration with Verma in Kaalakandi.

Kaalakaandi also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Akshay Oberoi, Amrya Dastur and Kunaal Roy Kapur. It is produced by Rohit Khattar and Ashi Dua's Cinestaan Film Company Pvt Ltd. It is slated to release on 8 September.
