Writer-director and also a producer, Nikkhil Advani is going great guns in the digital space. After delivering his career-best critical and commercial success, Batla House, the director has shifted his focus on web series.
Nikkhil Advani will be producing a new web series by the name Shekhawati. It is a female-centric show where the leads are going to be Lara Dutta and Kritika Kamra. For the former, it will be the second outing in the webspace. It will be the same for Kritika as well, but it will be so even before the release of the first one. She is part of biggie Tandav starring Saif Ali Khan, which is yet to stream.
Shekhawati set in the Rajasthan backdrop is about the issues women face in the region grappling with patriarchy and modernity at the same time. Gaurav K Chawla, the director of Nikkhil Advani produced Bazaar will direct the series.
Apart from Shekhawati, Nikkhil Advani has two more shows. They are Bombay Diaries for Amazon Prime Video and Moghuls for Hotstar. Unlike Shekhawati, which Nikkhil produces, the other two will be helmed by him. One look at them and one has to appreciate the director for picking such diverse subjects.
