Nikhil Dwivedi and Anurag Kashyap were getting ready to unveil the poster for their upcoming film, a Bollywood adaptation of Uma Thurman’s Kill Bill. It stars Kriti Sanon in the lead role. This week was supposed to be the poster launch. Nikhil, on the other hand, has put the plan on hold, according to IndiaToday.in. His relationship and association with Shah Rukh Khan is the basis for this. Following a raid aboard Cordelia Cruises’ Empress ship, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) detained Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan, in the Mumbai cruise drugs case. The Khan family has had a difficult time since then. The bail application of Aryan Khan will be considered on Wednesday, October 13.
Following Aryan Khan’s arrest, a plethora of Bollywood celebs have come out in support of Shah Rukh Khan. Nikhil Dwivedi, a producer and actor, has also expressed his support in a unique way. An associate close to the project, on condition of anonymity, told IndiaToday.in, “Nikhil was all set to put out the first look on social media. He and Anurag are quite excited about this film. But Nikhil has been upset since the day of Aryan’s arrest and decided to postpone the poster launch. He spoke to Anurag who agreed and both have decided to do the launch at a later date. Nobody is in the mood to celebrate given what SRK and his family are going through.”
Nikhil Dwivedi will produce and Anurag Kashyap will helm the Bollywood adaptation of Kill Bill. The film has yet to be given a title. Uma was introduced in Kill Bill (2003) as the world’s deadliest woman, ready to exact vengeance on a group of assassins and their leader after they attempted to murder her and her unborn child. She travels to Japan, where she fights organised crime gangs. The film was a major success, and the 2004 sequel was just as successful.
