After the debacle of Chandni Chowk To China, everyone has come down really hard on director Nikhil Advani. The fact that Nikhil's earlier film Salaam-e-Ishq was a big dud didn't help his cause either.
While Nikhil seems to have taken things in his stride, the media and gossip-mongers don't seem to stop with their Nikhil-bashing. Recently, there has been a lot of talk doing the rounds that Nikhil's forthcoming directorial venture Chand Bhai (supposedly starring Akshaye Khanna and Vidya Balan) has been shelved.
We decided to check with Nikhil if there is any truth to this story or whether it is just a figment of somebody's imagination. "No there is no truth to this story whatsoever. Chand Bhai is very much on. It's just that we have pushed the starting of the film to somewhere around July as a very close family friend has taken ill. You will hear an announcement on the status of the film very soon", says Nikhil.
Well, we hope, at least this clarification from Nikhil would put all rumors to rest.
