After playing several roles in the Bollywood industry, Nikhil Dwivedi is all set to take up a new challenge. Nikhil decided to make a foray into production with one of the most interesting releases of 2018, Veere Di Wedding. Starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania, the upcoming chick flick, is a joint production between Nikhil Dwivedi, Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor. “It was an amazing experience collaborating with Sonam, Kareena, Ekta, Rhea and the entire team. Veere… has turned out to be a fantastic project and I can’t wait for everyone to watch it,” says Nikhil.
But there is no stopping for him, he has now also taken a nosedive into the world of web series. Nikhil will produce a web series inspired by the Mahabharata but with a modern day twist to it, The show will be set in the modern era and chronicle the life of a 21st century business empire through its good, bad and ugly phases. Just like the classics, Mahabharata the new one also promises to stand out because of its complex yet intricate characters, opulent setting and intriguing plot.
Sharing his thoughts on the same, Nikhil says, “Digital is not the future but the present. Storytelling formats and mediums have undergone a drastic change in the last few years. The way we consume entertainment and watch shows is no longer bound by a TV set or a movie theater, which is why web series is a right format to approach. Mahabharata with a modern day twist is an exciting idea. Given the fact that it’s the oldest story written centuries ago, the narratives and characters in the plot have potential to get a modern day makeover. The Mahabharata we are making will be set in the modern-day setting.”
