The Vito Project & Naz Project presents My Brother Nikhil (2005), Sunday 5th May @ 6pm
In this groundbreaking Indian drama, a famous swimmer, Nikhil Kapoor (Sanjay Suri) deals with the repercussions of announcing the fact that he has HIV/AIDS.
The Kapoors have been living in Goa for several years, and are a well-known and respected family. Navin Kapoor is now retired, and lives with his wife Anita (Lillete Dubey), his sportsman son Nikhil, and daughter Anamika (Juhi Chawla).
They are thrilled that Nikhil has been selected for a sports scholarship and will be representing Goa in a national swimming championship. But before that can actually happen, Nikhil is asked by his coach to take a break, seemingly to let some fresh youngsters take over. He is eventually dismissed from the swimming team, and the family begin to encounter hostile stares whenever they go out together.
Watch the climax as the Kapoors find out why the ground has been removed from under their feet, and if at all they are ready to accept the challenge together as a family or as embittered individuals who end up blaming each other.  Find out more here.
