Salman - Ash in Nikhil Advani's next?

By Taran Adarsh, August 25th, 2004 - 0930 hrs IST

On July 13, exactly a month and a half ago, this writer broke the news of Nikhil Advani's new project. The talented director, who was responsible for one of the biggest hits in 2003 [KAL HO NAA HO], had turned independent and had approached Salman Khan and Saif Ali Khan for his forthcoming project.

Nikhil had denied it then. But he confirms it now. "I have narrated the script to Salman and he has agreed to do the film. He has liked the concept of the film immensely. We're presently working on the dates," Nikhil informs me.

A 2-hero, 2-heroine project, Nikhil had reportedly approached Saif for the other principal role. "If I had my way, I would never make a film without Saif," Nikhil states, "Saif and I got along very well during the making of KAL HO NAA HO. And I would like Saif to be a part of every film that I make. But it's premature to talk about the second role since I haven't spoken to him yet."

"By mid-October, I should be ready with the entire cast," Nikhil adds. Till then, let's keep our fingers crossed!

But the news doesn't end here. Here's the big, big scoop…

There are rumours that Nikhil has decided to cast Aishwarya Rai in this project. Opposite Salman Khan. So far, Salman and Ash had been teamed in two movies - HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM and HUM TUMHARE HAIN SANAM [Ash made a special appearance in the film] - and both proved hits.

"Mujhe picture banani hain," Nikhil jokes, but gets serious after a hearty laugh, "Are people really under the impression that Ash is a part of the project? Let me clarify, it's not true. I haven't even thought of casting the heroines simply because I don't have the dates of the two actors on my hand."

As for the leading lady opposite Saif, is it Rani Mukerji? After all, the chemistry between Saif and Rani was electrifying in HUM TUM. "I would love to cast Rani in my film. But she's an extremely busy actress and there's a possibility that her dates won't match with the dates of the actors."

A thriller, the film will be partly shot in London and partly in Mumbai

I don't think Ashwarya would want to work with Sallu (isn't that his nickname?) b/c of the way he has acted on previous movie sets (i.e. Devdas even though he wasn't even in it).  I think they should just stay away from each other.
