Laal Kaptaan BTS video: Watch Saif Ali Khan transform into Naga Sadhu

After Kaalakaandi, Saif Ali Khan will be back to the big screen in quirky avatar in Laal Kaptaan. The actor is playing the role of a Naga Sadhu in the film.

Right from the release of the film's trailer, Saif Ali Khan has been in news for his look in Laal Kaptaan. In the trailer, Saif is seen sporting a red jacket and white dhooti with long hair. He is seen dragging a body behind his horse in the trailer.

Now, the makers of the Laal Kaptaan has released a BTS (behind-the-scene) video of the film, decoding Saif's look and showing the actor's transformation into a hunter.

The video tells how Saif learnt sword fighting for the film. He also brushed up his horse riding skill and worked on his body to look like a pehelwan.

Earlier, makers of Laal Kaptaan released the trailer of the film. The 1-minute-22-second video begins with Saif talking about life and death. "Aadmi ke paida hote hi, kaal apne bhainse pe baith ke chal padhta hai use vaapis laane. Aadmi ki jindagi utni, jitna samay laga bhainse ko us tak pohonchne," he says as he covers himself in ash.

Talking about Saif's performance in the film, Navdeep Singh, director of Laal Kaptaan, said, "It wasn't difficult to get Saif on board. The first time he heard the narration and got to know it's a Western, he was super excited. He loves Western and said he always wanted to play something like this since he was 18. A man riding on a street, dragging a dead body behind kind of a thing."

"If you've watched Westerns as a kid, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, naturally you'd find those guys cool and would want to be like Clint Eastwood," Navdeep told PTI.

Laal Kaptaan is set to hit the screens on October 18.
