Wanted Sajid to turn director 10 years ago: Salman Khan
Actor Salman Khan, who convinced producer Sajid Nadiadwala to don the director's hat for his upcoming film "Kick", says he has always wanted the producer to direct.
Salman and Sajid have been close friends for over two decades now and have worked together in films like "Jeet", "Judwaa", "Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega" and "Mujhse Shaadi Karogi." "Sajid's narrations are better than those of most directors, and I've been pushing him to make the switch for years.In fact, I wanted him to turn director 10 years ago when he came to me with a film called 'Kunwara'. Today, I'm still kunwara (bachelor) but he's finally turned director!" Salman said in a statement.
"Kick" was earlier supposed to be directed by Shirish Kunder but on Salman's insistence Sajid was brought on board. "Salman and I share a very special chemistry, which you will now get to see on the big screen. We've given big hits like 'Jeet', 'Judwaa' and 'Mujshe Shaadi Karogi' in the past. So at this stage of his career, if he's selected me as his director, I have to make sure I deliver to his expectations," Sajid said. PTI
