Director Nikhil Advani made a great start with Kal Ho Naa Ho
(1993), directing for Karan Johar's home banner, Dharma
Productions. But his first attempt to break away from Karan's
shadow, Salaam-E-Ishq, ended in a failure.
However, the big-canvas director is undeterred and is now moving
on to his next few projects, starting with his big-budgeted
animation film, about which we have already told you.
Next on the anvil for Nikhil is the Akshay Kumar-Deepika
Padukone project, tentatively titled, Mera Naam Chin Chin
Choo. The action flick may well be shot in Shanghai, China, but
only next year and as early as January. The actual shooting date
will depend on Akshay's availability as the much in demand star
will first shoot for Nagesh Kukunoor's sci-fi thriller, Tasveer (in
September) and Yash Raj's action extravaganza, Tashan.
