In the course of Welcome to the Chippendales, Steve Banerjee is driven to the point where, to put it bluntly, but without direct spoilers, it turns out to be really dangerous for the main players in the Chippendales organization. In an interview, Nanjiani was asked to explain what it was about Nick that hurt Banerjee so much that he went to such drastic measures. In short, “Nick is everything he knows he can never be,” Nanjiani said.
It’s not just one simple aspect or trait, rather, De Noya exemplifies a range of traits that Banerjee would like him to have. “Nick is very creative, but Steve is not,” Nanjiani explains. “Nick is very good with people, but Steve is not. Nick is very charismatic. He has his own room. Steve can’t do this.” Steve Banerjee is no match for De Noya in any aspect of the attributes that develop the show or open up new business opportunities.
What’s worse for Steve, Nanjiani explains, is that Banerjee is not comfortable with his own libidinal self, which is an ironic limitation for the founder of a world famous men’s revue. “Nick loves himself, Steve hates himself,” Nanjiani explains. “Nick is very attached to his body and his s*xuality, and Steve is very cut off from everything that is around his neck.” While Banerjee wants the company to succeed because, frankly, it has a lot of money, he doesn’t have the ability needed to make it work on its own… ability that De Noya has in abundance.
