Though he started off with a bang with the Shahrukh Khan starrer KAL HO NA HO, Nikhil Advani had couple of back-to-back disappointments in SALAAM-E-ISHQ and CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA. Now after more than seven years, Nikhil Advani is smiling again with PATIALA HOUSE turning out to be redemption of sorts.
"Do you know that Akshay announced his next with me within 12 hours of the release of CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA", says Nikhil who has also worked with other top actors like Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Priyanka Chopra in the past, "When many would have questioned his decision then, now they can see what was so special about PATIALA HOUSE that he came on board immediately."
With gratitude in his tone, Nikhil is elated about the fact that he didn't let Akshay down with PATIALA HOUSE.
"Today the same people are saying that this is Akshay's finest performance in years. From the low that we saw in CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA, this is one big high to have your work stand out as one of the best ever in someone's career", he smiles.
"While the positive reviews are always most welcome, the ones that I cherish most are the comments which have come from Akshay's wife and sister", he continues, "They are his biggest critics and if they are saying that the film is good, it is a rewarding for sure."
Well Nikhil, hope audience continues similar sentiments in the coming days well!
