After the disastrous Chandni Chowk To China, Nikhil Advani has moved on and has officially announced Patiala House starring Akshay Kumar in the lead.
Most actor – director combos, would break after disasters, but Akshay and Nikhil seem to have a lot of belief in each other and this move also shows how secure Akshay Kumar really is.
Joining them is Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi actress Anushka Sharma, in her first film outside the Yashraj banner. Rishi Kapoor too has been signed on to play a key role, while there are rumors of Dimple Kapadia being a part of the project.
So what is the movie all about? “It’s a father-son story. The son gives up his dream to save his father’s reputation, until he meets a girl who gives him the strength to stand up for what he believes. It’s about second chances” says director Nikhil Advani.
The shooting begins in December and should finish by June 2010. Music will be composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy.
What do you think? Will Akshay – Anuskha make a good onscreen pair? Is Nikhil Advani a capable director?
