Producer Nikhil Panchammiya, who in the past has made films like Dil Maange More
and Anthohy Kaun Hai
is going prolific this year. While two of his productions are already
on floors, he plans to bring his third film on floors before the year
comes to a close. Now that must be keeping him really busy considering
he is an independent producer.
"Yes, I am busy but then who is complaining", quips Nikhil who has also been the Executive Producer for films like Chal Mere Bhai
, Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega
. "I have waited for this moment and now that Tum Milo To Sahi
and Mastang Mama
are on floors, I already am looking forward to get my third film
rolling soon," adds Nikhil.
Tum Milo To Sahi
is a multistarrer comprising of actors
ranging from seniors like Nana Patekar
, Dimple Kapadia
Shetty to relatively new entrants like Vidya Malvade
, Rehan Khan and
. Incidentally composer/singer Raghav Sachar, too, makes
his debut as an actor in a guest appearance role which sees him playing
"The shooting for the film has been on for close to one month and we
plan to bring it to theaters around the month of November", informs
Nikhil, "Mastang Mama
too, is close to 80% complete and I am quite happy with its progress so
far. Yes, it does become hectic to keep hopping from one location to
another due to both the films being on the shoot simultaneously but I
am enjoying every bit of it."
stars Ruslaan Mumtaz in the lead along with Kulraaj Randhawa, child artist Tanay Chheda (of Taare Zameen Par
fame) and Gulshan Grover
. The film is directed by debutant Vikram Singh
who has also written the story and screenplay of the film.
"Once the shooting of these two films is complete, I would get started
with my third film somewhere around October. I am already in the
process of signing people and should be revealing the star cast soon",
Is he also in a hurry to get the cast of the film in place since it
would be good to 'catch them early' before their price skyrockets, as
has been the case with so many other stars?
Says Nikhil after a hearty laugh, "I promote good films and good
actors. At the end of the day good script matters and not star fees. I
am in no mood to pay astronomical fees to my actors just because they
seem to be in scarcity. When an actor agrees to my film, he/she knows
quite well that it is the script which would have the project rolling.
Nothing else matters!"
