Nikhil Dwivedi is someone who does not fall in to the typical synonym of the typical tall, dark, handsome Bollywood hero. He is someone who can rightly be called as the ‘Thinking Man’s Actor’, for he is not just artistically oriented but academically as well… as he holds a dual MBA degree, wherein, one MBA stands for ‘Masters in Business Administration’ while the second stands for ‘Masters in Bollywood Acting’.
Armed with films like My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves and others, Nikhil is someone who is surely a name to watch out for in the days to come, for his stellar and much-talked about performance in the flick Shor In the City. Satish Sundaresan of Bollywood Hungama caught up with this actor wherein he talks all about his dream role, his favourite movies and his take on Mumbai. Over to you, Nikhil!

The big news
Now this development really gets the antennas stand right up with all attention reserved for what next is really in the offing. Believe it or not but a major Hollywood-Bollywood collaboration is right up in the anvil and two of the bigger superstars from different ends of the world are all set to share screen space. The film in question is Xtrme City and the men in question – hold your breath – Shah Rukh Khan and Leonardo Di Caprio.
Yes, even though all of this seemed like a dream till a few years back, it is indeed turning out to be a reality since work is progressing on brisk speed to get the scripting in place for the film. There is quite some action on pre-production front as well and Xtrme City is looking positive at going on floors by end of 2010. If that indeed happens, Shah Rukh can well be expected to be really busy all through 2010 and 2011 with Ra 1 and the sequel of Don required to be wrapped up before Xtrme City starts taking a shape.
How it happened
Informs our source, “Not many know but when Shah Rukh visited Berlin for the premiere of My Name Is Khan, his agenda also included a groundbreaking movie deal. He was power-dining with Hollywood bigwigs like director Martin Scorsese and screenplay writer Paul Schrader over the project which is touted to star Bollywood’s reigning superstar with Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo Di Caprio.
