Nadiadwala, a true mentor in Bollywood
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala is currently gearing up for the release of Varun Dhawan, John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez-starrer Dishoom. After years of experimenting and casting new faces in films, he has received feedback from his actors that he should begin a talent wing.
While producers like Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar have invented their talent pool, and are known for binding actors in a three-film contract, creating their own talent wing with actors they launched, Nadiadwala chose to work differently. He has introduced new talent and faces in Bollywood without multiple film contracts. With a lot of hits at the box office, actors such as Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shraddha Kapoor and Varun Dhawan have been pushing the producer to have a wing of his own. Despite that, he continues to mentor and advise these actors without any binding.
Trade analyst Amul Mohan says, “Sajid has been a go-to producer for the young talent. He is one of the few mentors who doesn’t bind his actors with contracts towards the studio or him and lets them explore the world of cinema which helps them be independent in this field”
Presented by Eros International and Produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Dishoom — directed by Rohit Dhawan — releases on July 29.
