The much-awaited trailer of Saif Ali Khan starrer Laal Kaptaan was finally released today and we have to say that it is mind-blowing. Keeping it very dense and vivid, the makers have managed to create intrigue and people are eager to know what happens next. But it was not just Saif Ali Khan’s character that surprised us.
In the 1 minute long trailer, one can hear Sonakshi Sinha’s voiceover and that confirms that she is a part of this film. She delivers a hard-hitting dialogue giving an insight into what Saif’s character actually is. While we would have loved to see her in the trailer as well, director Navdeep Singh earlier revealed to Pinkvilla that they want to keep her character a secret.
The NH10 director said, “It’s a special appearance but a very pivotal one. I wanted somebody who would leave an impression, someone with star quality and appeal. Sonakshi fit the bill perfectly. I’ll leave her part as a mystery!!”
“All I’ll say is she’s the most glamorous thing in the film. She was fabulous to work with! I was a little apprehensive the night of the shoot. I hadn’t met her before and we were already mid schedule. I had no idea what to expect. It was a pleasant surprise! She is super smart, tuned in, a fab actor and totally professional.” said Navdeep.
The film is helmed by NH 10 director Navdeep Singh and backed by Aanand L Rai. Laal Kaptaan was was earlier scheduled to release on October 11 but now it has been postponed to October 18.
Apart from Laal Kaptaan, Sonakshi will also be seen in Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 3. She will return as Rajjo after 9 years in the third part of the Dabangg franchise. She is also a part of Ajay Devgn starrer Bhuj: The Pride OF India also starring Parineeti Chopra.
