Mumbai: It could be a casting coup of sorts. If rumours are to be believed, filmmaker Nikhil Advani has decided to bring together a bevy of Bollywood beauties for his next film.
Nikhil plans to rope in Madhuri Dixit, Dimple Kapadia, Shabana Azmi, Karisma Kapoor, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Genelia D`Souza and Deepika Padukone for his film!
The filmmaker, who has made films like ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’, ‘Chandni Chowk To China’ and ‘Patiala House’ in the past wants to make a female oriented film this time and pay his tribute to contemporary Indian women.
Speaking to a daily, a source informed, “Nikhil first approached Madhuri for this film when she was still living in the US. Then he was informed that the actress would be relocating to Mumbai. Madhuri who loved the script of the project seems to have made up her mind to make Nikhil`s film her comeback vehicle.”
Madhuri was even more elated that she would be able to work senior actresses like Dimple Kapadia and Shabana Azmi, both of whom have worked with Madhrui earlier.
The film is likely to depict women of all ages and generations. Madhuri, Dimple and Shabana will form the first generation.
Karisma Kapoor will be part of the second generation of screen queens in the film. Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta will form the third generation and Genelia D`Souza and Deepika Padukone will represent the fourth generation.
Much is being discussed about Nikhil’s ambitious project as the director is all set to pay tribute to these divas. But when the daily contacted Nikhil, he refused to comment and simply said, “It`s too early to talk about this project. I`m at present scripting the film.”
Let’s hope that Nikhil finishes the script soon and manages to rope in all the gorgeous beauties for the film. Their fans cannot wait for this one!
