Nikhil Advani directed the films Salaam- E-Ishq(2007), Chandni Chowk To China (2009) and Patiala House (2011) and co-produced them along with Mukesh Talreja under the banner of People Tree Productions.
Salaam- E-Ishq was a hit, Chandni Chowk To China was a box office disaster and Patiala House is doing reasonably well.
Now, Nikhil is floating his own production house and wants to produce and direct a romantic film titled Guppie- Mein Liar Nahih Shayer Hoon. The story and screenplay for the film is being written by Anuja Chauhan whose novels The Zoya Factor and Battle of Bittoria were best sellers. Akshay Kumar, the director’s best friend, is likely to star in this film.
At present, Advani is giving finishing touches to Delhi Safari, which is an animated movie about four animals that travel from Mumbai to Delhi to meet the prime minister.
