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.
