Nikhil Advani’s next film Patiala House, starring Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Akshay Kumar, and Anushka Sharma is getting ready to hit theaters next year! The film is about Cricket, about family, about the generation gap, about living your dreams and more! We were able to visit the sets of Patiala House when they were shooting in the London. Director Advani told us, “Patiala House is such a diverse film in terms of the layers we are trying to explore. There is a father and son story. There is the story of an immigrant coming to England to work and achieve his dreams. Then there is cricket. There is also a story of a family and generations. Of an older generation trying to hold onto tradition, and a younger generation trying to break free, and attempting to show that by assimilating with the so called western world does not mean you have to give up on Indian values.”
Synopsis: At Patiala House lives the Kahlon family ruled by Bauji. They follow his diktats as he tries to hold onto his “Indian values” in the land of the “goras”.
The younger generation at the Patiala House wants to assert themselves and follow their dreams but are held back by their respect and love for Bauji and the shining example of Bauji’s eldest son, Parghat Singh Kahlon aka Gattu. Gattu gave up his dream at the altar of Bauji’s biases.
His reward: For the last 17 years he has been working in a corner store.
Will Bauji loosen his hold and let the youngsters find their own dreams instead of following his?
Will Gattu get a second chance to live his life?
What’s more important: family or dreams?
And why must we choose one or the other?
We have been waiting for that first look and now we have it, the first trailer has been released! Check it out here, first on BollySpice.com!
