After a guest appearance in an Akshay Kumar film in 2015, the actress returns to the spotlight with Nikkhil Advani’s next.
Saif Ali Khan is set to play a businessman in Gauravv K Chawla’s Baazaar and the story revolves around the Indian stock market. Joining him is Chitrangda Singh who will be playing the role of Mandira, Saif’s wife.
There were reports that Chitrangda replaced Prachi Desai for the role but Nikkhil Advani who is the producer insists that Singh was always the first choice.
“I’m happy that the cast is looking so exciting. We have Saif, Chitrangda, Radhika Apte and Rohan Mehra (making his acting debut). The shoot has just begun and will be wrapped up by mid-August while the film is slated for a December release. Prachi has expressed interest in working with my production house but that is for another project. As far as the role of Mandira in Baazaar is concerned, Gauravv K Chawla, my director, came up with the idea of casting Chitrangda,” Nikkhil says.
Chitrangda will be seen after a gap of two years so is Baazaar a sort of comeback for the actress? Nikkhil said, “I won’t call it a comeback but just the fact that she hasn’t done anything for quite some time was instrumental in us considering her because it’s a powerful character that’s silent and simmering, like a volcano about to erupt.Casting her opposite Saif makes the film about strong actors and characters.”
Baazaar features Saif in the role of a businessman while Radhika apte plays his secretary. The poster of the film, that released earlier this month, saw Saif in character with salt and pepper hair.
