Bullet Raja lets Saif do a Butch Cassidy...

The George Roy Hill classic Western Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. In Bullet Raja, director Tigmanshu Dhulia has relocated the original buddy film’s concept from the Wild West to Lucknow.

While Saif plays one of the trigger-happy protagonists, the talented Jimmy Sheirgill plays the other lead in Bullet Raja, so named because of Saif’s character’s penchant for firing bullets and riding the Bullet brand of motorcycle. ‘Saif and Jimmy are akin to Paul Newman and Robert Redford’s roles in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Irrfan comes into the story midway as a ruthless cop who is summoned to stop Saif’s no-holds-barred outlawry,’ said a source.

Bullet Raja portrays Saif as the fastest gun in Lucknow, the source added, saying: ‘And he loves it.

He is exploring the adventurous royal side of his personality, firing guns, screeching down dusty roads on his trademark Bullet mobike, looking for a new adventure every day.’ Saif is completely into getting out of his cultured accent and royal habits to get a hang of the colloquial Uttar Pradesh dialect.
