Nikkhil Advani, who is making Baazaar with actor Saif Ali Khan kshay Kumar or Hrithik Roshan before signing Saif. The D-Day director said that every time he is photographed with Akshay, rumours of them collaborating for a film crop up. “I have done three films with Akshay and I can meet him for dinner. Hrithik and I want to do a film together and have been talking about several films,” he said. The Patiala House director also said that he may discuss his upcoming projects with several people that doesn’t mean he’s signing them. “I discuss films with several people, at several times. It’s not as if Akshay or Hrithik were supposed to do the film. It didn’t even reach a stage where I told them the story. It was just a dinner conversation,” he said.

Baazaar, directed by Gauravv Chawla, is about the world of stock markets and trading. Of the film’s story, Nikkhil said that Baazaar’s plot is not the same as Leonardo DiCaprio’s critically acclaimed The Wolf of Wall Street. He added: “But I hope when you see the film you say we have matched up to that scale and achieved something brilliant. Why do we have to go to the West when everything is in the books over here.”

Nikkhil said that Baazaar is about “Mumbai which controls everything, where debauchery happens.” Nikkhil told PTI: “Baazaar is about ‘dhando’, Saif is playing a Gujrati businessman. He looks very suave on the poster but he is a Gujurati businessman in the film. It is about this businessman who crosses lines left right and centre.”

Nikkhil said that Saif Ali Khan had just one condition to work in the film, which was that he doesn’t want people to say, ‘This does not happen.’ So, Nikkhil narrated the film to a set of businessmen. “They heard it and the only comment they made was, you are talking about Rs 200 and 300 crore, but we don’t talk in less than Rs 10,000 crore. Increase the numbers please,” he said.

The film also stars late actor Vinod Mehra’s son Rohan and actress Radhika Apte. The film is scheduled to release this year in December.

Nikkhil Advani Clarifies If Saif Ali Khan Starrer ‘Baazaar’ is not inspired by Wolf of Wall Street

A lot of fizzle is doing rounds in the B-town ever since the First Look poster of Saif Ali Khan starrer ‘Baazaar’ was released a few weeks ago. More so, as many industry people pointed how the movie could be well INSPIRED a lot by Hollywood film ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’. But now producer Nikkhil Advani denies all of it.

The basic story plot of the movie does revolve around stock market and trading but that clearly doesn’t mean that the movie grabs INSPIRATION from Leonardo Di Caprio’s Hollywood flick ‘The Wold Of Wall Street’. This is cleared away by the movie’s producer Nikkhil Advani who says, “Baazaar is about people who will always choose money over love and has a lot of research work behind it.”

On being asked if it is inspired at all, Nikkhil says, “Absolutely not. Not at all. But I hope when you see the film you say we have matched up to that scale and achieved something brilliant. Why do we have to go to the West when everything is in the books over here.”

‘Baazaar’ will show Saif Ali Khan playing the role of a street-smart and agile Gujarati business man and the movie also marks the Bollywood debut of late actor Vinod Mehra’s son, Rohan Mehra. He is there in the silhouette of the poster and plays an important role in the movie.

Says a close source, “Recently, the producer Nikkhil Advani, and Saif’s talent agency received a threat call from an unknown individual.”

Saif Ali Khan’s next, Bazaar, is based on the cocktail of a city life and stock trading, and the actor seems excited about it. The director Gauravv K. Chawla announced the film , and we even saw a glimpse of Saif’s formal look and grey hair do with the first poster. However, not all seems to be well with the movie. Says a close source, “Recently, the producer Nikkhil Advani, and Saif’s talent agency received a threat call from an unknown individual, who isn’t very happy with the movie.”

A spokesperson of Emmay Entertainment confirmed in an official statement, “We understand that our colleagues at Exceed Talent Management have received threatening emails, whose contents are untrue and unsubstantiated. It appears to be the mischievous work of troublemakers. We have reported the matter to the authorities and are allowing them to address the manner appropriately. There is no disruption caused by this in our relationship with Exceed, its management and talent. We are grateful and excited that our film Baazaar is under aggressive production and are looking forward to its completion soon.”

Through his 24-year-long film career, he has played a variety of parts in a number of movies. But what Saif Ali Khan hasn’t done till date is donning grey hair on screen. But now, the actor has done that too, as visible in the first-look poster of an upcoming film, Baazaar.

“What’s interesting is that it was the actor, who had suggested to the makers about greying his character’s hair. Saif as well as makers knew that it (greying his hair) will make audiences anticipate as to what his character could be. It seems to be an intense outing for him,” says an insider.

Makers found Saif ’s suggestion “interesting”, especially because it goes “very well” with Saif ’s character that is supposed to “intense” and “powerful.” “Also, since Saif is well known for setting style statements with panache, makers knew that he can pull off the grey lock very easily,” says the insider.

The actor is also believed to be excited about his new look and the film since the new film will be a part of “a very diverse” line-up of films starting with a Hindi adaptation of the Hollywood hit Chef and Akshat Verma’s Kaalakaandi.

Known for playing bold, feisty characters, Radhika Apte will next be seen in Saif Ali Khan-starrer Bazaar.

Producer Madhu Bhojwani says, “It is a performance-oriented character and we wanted someone who could take the audience by surprise. Keeping that in mind, we thought Radhika fits the bill. She is a fine actress.”

Touted to be a thriller, Nikkhil Advani-directed Bazaar is set against the backdrop of stock market. The film will also see yesteryear actor Vinod Mehra’s son Rohan making his acting debut.

The producer, however, refuses to reveal who the actress will be paired with. “All I can say is that she has an important and interesting role, which the audience will enjoy.”

While the film has been in the making for long, the first look poster was unveiled only last week. Madhu claims there hasn’t been any delay.

“I can’t comment on media speculation, but it is a script that we have been working on for quite some time. We wanted to announce it when everything came together.”

The makers hope to take the film to theatres later this year. “We will start shooting next week. Hopefully, if things go as per schedule, we will be able to release it by this year-end or early 2018,” she signs off.
