Saif Ali Khan was considered as a credible actor with a good box office standing. He never delivered solo blockbusters but yet his films used to do decent business because of which he was quite in demand. But over the last few years, his commercial prospects have taken a beating after few of his films didn’t do well at the box office. 2017 particularly has been bad. Vishal Bhardwaj’s magnum opus Rangoon, co-starring Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut, emerged as a huge disaster due to its high costs. Chef, on the other hand, had lower costs and yet, became a huge flop. His upcoming film Kaalakaandi’s release is also in the limbo and there are talks that it might directly release on video streaming platforms.
Baazaar also marks the acting debut of Rohan Mehra, son of yesteryear actor Vinod Mehra. Chitrangda Singh and Radhika Apte are the other actors in this cast. The film is produced by Nikkhil Advani and deals with the happenings in the stock market.
