Nikhil Advani-directed film sold at announcement stage!
By Manisha Deshpande
He's only a one-film director but Nikhil Advani's name carries a good deal of value both in the production and distribution market, so much so that an Advani-directed film is considered a safe proposition any day, even if it is at the announcement stages. So when producer Boney Kapoor, who has shared a consistent relationship with Mumbai distributors Raksha Distributors, offered the Mumbai rights of a soon-to-be launched Advani film, the latter immediately obliged. "The fact that the KAL HO NA HO director is behind the film is an asset in itself. Besides the film will have some big names in it and we felt it was best to confirm the Mumbai rights of the film, even though it was at the announcement stages," says Rakesh Sippy of Raksha Distributors, who also clarifies that he is not producing the film. "There are some people in the trade who have got this impression that I am producing the film but the fact is that I am only distributing it. I have no plans of getting into production either now or in the future. The film is being produced by Boney Kapoor and I am looking forward to it," smiles Rakesh.
