Kiara Advani signs her next film ‘Indoo Ki Jawani’ with Nikkhil Advani
Kiara Advani may have started off her career with a couple of forgetful films like ‘Fugly’, ‘Machine’ and a blink-n-miss appearance in ‘Dhoni: The Untold Story’. However, she has managed to pull up her socks and given some great performances ever since. Ever since she came into the Karan Johar gang, she has been bagging projects one after the other, and her brand value has increased immensely. With so much happening in her life, she has now gone ahead to sign another film, ‘Indoo Ki Jawani’.
Talking about why she decided to join the film, (speaking to Mumbai Mirror) Kiara said she is all fired up about her first female centric film. “Indoo is edgy, lovable and quirky. The dialect is completely new so I’m going to do a lot of workshops to get it right. I can’t wait to start shooting,” she said.
She went on to add that the story is very relevant in the current era. Her character’s background and setting makes the film even more interesting for her. When Mumbai Mirror prodded her for more details into the story of the film, she went quiet and only spoke about how she ended up signing the film with producer Nikkhil Advani. “This is such a special script, I think we were meant to do it together,” she said.
Nikkhil Advani spoke highly of the film to Mumbai Mirror. He said, “Some time ago, my daughter Keya came to my office and while looking at the posters of the films we have made so far asked matter-of-factly why all of them had only men and no women. Around the time, I heard this story that Niranjan and Ryan brought to us and fell in love with it. Thankfully, it revolves around a female protagonist.” Nikkhil and Kiara have been wanting to collaborate since a really long time, and finally they have managed to do so with ‘Indoo Ki Jawani’.
From what we hear, the film maybe revolving around a girl who finds love on a dating app. When Mumbai Mirror asked Kiara about her presence on dating apps, she said, “Nope, but I have friends using these apps and have heard a lot of fun stories of their experiences. But nothing compared to what we have for you.”
To be directed by Bengali writer-filmmaker Abir Sengupta, the film is set to go on floors in September.
Kiara is currently busy with the shooting of ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ and ‘Sher Shah’. She will also start promotions of ‘Kabir Singh’. After ‘Kabir Singh’, she will be next seen in ‘Good News’.
