After the teaser for the newly renamed, A Gentleman, by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK came out yesterday, actors Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez promised that the first look of the film will be out soon. As promised, Malhotra released the first poster of his character in the film at midnight on Monday.

The poster features Malhotra as the 'sundar', 'susheel' and 'risky' gentleman on a mission. Posing with a pressure cooker lid and a smoking gun, Malhotra typefies his character's dual personalities of being homely, as well as a daredevil.

While his first poster might have been dapper, the actor promised something more to come in his tweets. Messaging his co-star, Jacqueline Fernandez on Twitter, Malhotra wrote, 'Hey @Asli_Jacqueline I want to show you off to the world ! You did some sick stuff in #AGentleman'

Quick to the button, Fernandez replied saying, 'Hey @S1dharthM let's do it in an hour?'

In an hour's time, the second poster from the movie was released on Twitter. The latest one features both Malhotra and Fernandez firing off into the horizon.

The second poster carries touches of Bang Bang (2014) with the arm in arm pose, and the firing guns. A Gentleman is a sequel to the Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif-starrer. The film was initially titled 'Reloaded' before the change to 'A Gentleman'.

A Gentleman is directed by Nidimoru and Krishna DK. The film is scheduled for theatrical release on 25 August.
