His foray in to film production, WOH TERA NAAM THA, did not get the expected response at the box-office but Vijaypat Singhania seems eager to continue his association with Bollywood or at least that's what appears. Singhania is presenting the much-talked about Gulshan Grover-Diana Hayden starrer, AADA - WILL KILL U, being produced by Alok Srivastav and directed by Ajeet Sinha, former assistant to Indra Kumar. Besides Grover and Hayden whose pairing in the bold film has elicited a lot of curiosity, the film also stars supermodel Rajeev Singh, Vasundhara Das and former Miss India Reshmi Ghosh. Apparently, Singhania has not yet taken a decision whether his name should appear as the official presenter of the film. He was not available for comment but the director of Radhakrishna Films, P R Jain revealed that the film was being financed by Singhania. "We are funding the film but we have not yet taken a decision about how we'll officially associate with the film. We are also looking at other proposals for funding projects, though we have no plans to produce any film at the moment," Jain revealed.
Meanwhile AADA... is generating the right amount of curiosity among buyers in the trade. A few weeks ago, the film was the talk of the trade when its bold and sizzling publicity designs were flashed in a leading trade magazine, which reportedly generated an excitement in the distribution market.
While on AADA..., the film is also being eagerly awaited by Gulshan Grover who plays the role of an industrialist and is being paired opposite close friend, Diana Hayden, is a happening man these days what with the interesting projects lined up on the home and international front. "It is a very interesting role that I am playing after a long time," Grover reveals. There were rumors that the story of the film was inspired by Prince Charles and Lady Diana's life, where Grover's character had shades of Prince Charles. "The reports are slightly exaggerated but the character of Diana does have a semblance to Lady Diana's life in that she plays the role of a middle class girl who falls in love with a multimillionaire and realizes her dream of marrying him. The story is also about love and betrayal," Grover adds.
