Nikkhil Advani's 'Bazaar' has been in a lot of news for its casting. Earlier there were several speculations that Hrithik Roshan will play the male lead. However Nikkhil brushed off those news and said that he never approached Duggu.
Lastly we heard that the director has approached Akshay Kumar for the film but we are yet to receive any official announcement. Recently Nikkhil revealed his directorial and production plans and was quoted as saying, "I will be launching two of my assistant directors who have just completed their scripts. One is a real-life story of prison inmates who start a band in jail. It happened in Lucknow, it’s called 'Lucknow Centric'. It’s very high in human spirit. Then there’s another small film called 'Jackfruit', which is like Hyderabad Blues. I am waiting for Nagesh Kukunoor to read the script as it’s right up his alley. Then my directorial plans are focused on 'Bazaar', which will start rolling in the middle of this year. We are also planning to produce a television show but we haven’t announced it yet. We are also looking at web series. So that’s what we have on Emmay Entertainment’s plate right now.”
