Did Saif Ali Khan recently have heated argument with Nikhil Advani over the release of their upcoming project Baazaar? Well, that’s what several media reports said on Monday.
A report by Times of India had said that Nikkhil and co-producer Ajay Kapoor had visited Saif’s house to discuss the release of Baazaar. Nikhil, the report had said, was keen on releasing the film on a digital platform with an intention to recover the investment on the film through a digital income. But contrary to his belief that Saif will be on the same page, the actor reported lost his cool on the proposal of having a digital release for his film.
Some reports even said that Saif had even started looking for exhibitors for the film.
But now Saif’s spokesperson has denied the reports of his heated argument with Nikhil. “The rumours are ridiculous. Everyone is excited about ‘Baazaar’ and the way it has shaped up. There was no argument whatsoever as Nikhil Advani and Saif are friends and have shared a great equation over the years,” ANI quoted a statement by Saif’s spokesperson.
The much talked about film also features Radhika Apte and Chitrangada Singh in axial roles and is set against the backdrop of stock trading. It is reportedly inspired by ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.
Not so long ago, Saif was involved in a legal fight initiated against his daughter Sara Ali Khan by Abhishek Kapoor after she failed to honour the terms of her agreement. Saif’s intervention had seen the smooth resolution of the dispute.
Saif is in desperate need to have a hit film under his belt. His last few movies such as Happy Ending, Phantom, Rangoon, Chef and Kaalakaandi have been big flops. Whether Baazaar will be his lucky charm, we will only know if Saif’s differences with the film’s producer are resolved amicably.
Recently, his old interview had gone viral where the actor had talked about facing public ridicule and financial difficulties immediately after his divorce with Amrita Singh.
