Nikkhil Advani on working with Saif Ali Khan for Bazaar

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , on June 23, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

While talking about his upcoming project, Bazaar, starring Saif Ali Khan, filmmaker Nikkhil Advani opens up about his entertainment company Emmay Entertainment and how it is not a ‘Bollywood Camp’, rather it works out talents to churn out content-driven films.

Meet Nikkhil Advani and you’ll know why progressive content on digital plays an important role in the making of our country. The director-general opens up about how his entertainment company Emmay Entertainment is not a ‘Bollywood Camp’ and works out with talent to churn out content driven films, and how Indian filmmakers are taking the next step by making web-series.

Since you have jumped into making digital content too, do you think the content available on Indian digital platforms is progressive enough?
I definitely think digital content in India today is progressive. I mean I may not agree to a certain things as a viewer, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have progressive content on the internet in India. Look at the Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor roast, they pushed those boundaries which you can’t push do when it comes to feature films or Indian television. Even the other stuff that TVF guys are doing, or couple of short films that Rasika Dugal has done, or this short film called School Bag I saw last night, it’s good! So progressive in other terms, like the way it is shot or the actors they shoot with, these actors would normally confine to standing three rows behind a big star or a side role but they are too good, so they are getting good roles to play in this space, not necessarily it should always be the content, nonetheless good content is churned out on the internet.

Saif Ali Khan spills the beans on Baazaar

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , on June 9, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

It is very uncommon to see Indian filmmakers make movies based around the adrenaline-pumping world of the stock market. Producer Nikkhil Advani (Airlift and Hero) has chosen to walk down the seldom-trodden path with his latest venture Baazaar, which features Saif Ali Khan, debutant Rohan Mehra and Chitrangada Singh in the lead. The last time we had seen Nikkhil and Saif come together for a film, it was for Kal Ho Na Ho (2004) which had Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta in the lead.

While talking about the film, Nikkhil said “It’s been 13 years since Kal Ho Naa Ho, when I last shared creative space with Saif. So, this movie is special for us.”

This movie will see Saif play a shrewd businessman with a rags-to-riches story, who is deemed the uncrowned king of the Indian stock market. If reports are to be believed, Saif had met some real world power sharks of the business world.

Saif Ali Khan’s Baazaar – A thriller set in Mumbai’s stock market

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

While the stock market plays a significant role in our economy , not many films have been made around it. Producer Nikkhil Advani walks the seldom-trodden path with his latest venture, Baazaar . Helmed by Gauravv K Chawla, it stars Saif Ali Khan, debu tant Rohan Mehra and Chitrangda Singh.
When they began filming, Nikkhil stood watching with pride. He says, “It’s been 13 years since Kal Ho Naa Ho, when I last shared creative space with Saif. So, this movie is special for us.“ Saif plays a cut-throat rags-to-riches businessman, who rules Mumbai’s share baazaar.

As part of prepping for the role, we hear that he met with some real-life power sharks in the busi, ness world. The story of `dhandho’ and `vyaapar’ , -as director Gauravv calls the film -is pro duced by Dheeraj Wadhavan and Ajay Kapoor.

“It’s a story about ambition, greed, betrayal, loss and redemption. The movie is a suspense thriller set in the world of big deals and high finance,“ says Saif.

Ajay Kapoor, Managing Director, KYTA Productions, adds, “We are very happy to back Baazaar; it has been highly appreciated right from its first look. We look forward to making more such high-concept and entertaining films with Emmay Entertainment.“

Baazaar , produced by KYTA Productions and Emmay Entertainment, releases this December.

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , on May 30, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

After a guest appearance in an Akshay Kumar film in 2015, the actress returns to the spotlight with Nikkhil Advani’s next

While Saif Ali Khan kicked off shooting for his next, Nikkhil Advani’s Baazaar, last week at a mall in Mumbai, Chitrangda Singh has now been brought on-board by the makers to play his wife, Mandira. The actress, who was last seen in a special appearance for the song “Aao Raja” in the Akshay Kumar, Shruti Haasanstarrer Gabbar is Back in 2015, has reportedly replaced Prachi Desai in Nikkhil’s film. However, the filmmaker insists that Chitrangda was always the first choice for the part.

“I’m happy that the cast is looking so exciting. We have Saif, Chitrangda, Radhika Apte and Rohan Mehra (making his acting debut). The shoot has just begun and will be wrapped up by mid-August while the film is slated for a December release. Prachi has expressed interest in working with my production house but that is for another project. As far as the role of Mandira in Baazaar is concerned, Gauravv K Chawla, my director, came up with the idea of casting Chitrangda,” Nikkhil says, adding that script was going through revisions before the team started shooting and Gauravv wanted to ensure he had the script locked before he approached an actress for the role.
