From an unapologetic wife-beater in TV drama Jackson Heights to the slickest henchman we've ever seen in Deepa Mehta's Beeba Boys, Ali Kazmi plays the part of the bad guy like it's second skin.

In the recently released trailer of Beeba Boys, we see Kazmi as equal parts sinister and stylish in his role as one in a crew of six sharply dressed gangsters led by a 'proud Sikh', Jeet Johar (Randeep Hooda).

With his eyes set on ruling the arms and drugs scene in Vancouver, Jeet Johar locks horns with the current kingpin Garewal, making it a brutal drama to watch. This is Mehta's first action flick, which is based on a real-life story.

Kazmi has a string of upcoming releases: in addition to Beeba Boys, he will star in Punjabi rom-com, Rohit Jugraj’s Sardarji, Ajay Devgn’s action-packed Shivay and Pakistan's latest sci-fi film Sedare. Beeba Boys will be the first of these to release on October 16.
