MUMBAI — Days after unveiling “Jazbaa’s” first look at the Cannes Film Festival with a poster of the movie’s leading lady Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Bollywood director Sanjay Gupta has made public a second poster featuring actor Irrfan Khan.

In the new poster, the “Piku” star is donning a black leather jacket and aviators with a cityscape behind him. He plays a suspended cop in the Sanjay-Gupta-directed action drama.

Khan’s stylish new avatar in the film is a departure from his unkempt look in previous outings.

“HERE IT IS. Presenting Irrfan in ‘JAZBAA.’ I’ve always enjoyed doing a complete makeover with all my heroes. Amitji, Sanju, Anil, Jackie, Ajay, Saif, Sunil, John and now Irrfan,” Gupta posted on Twitter.

“Jazbaa” is Bachchan’s comeback project after a five-year gap.

Gupta is also returning to the silver screen after his 2013 multi-starrer crime drama “Shootout at Wadala.”

The trailer of the film, which also stars Shabana Azmi and Anupam Kher in pivotal roles, will be unveiled in Mumbai soon.

The movie is hitting theaters October 9.
