Amitabh Bachchan to star in Sajid Khan’s next venture
Sajid Khan whose latest movie ‘Himmatwala’ drastically failed at the box-office is penning his next script keeping in mind his all time favorite and megastar Amitabh Bachchan. He has also Saif Ali Khan and Ritiesh Deshmukh in mind for a pivotal role. The film is going to be a comedy.
Sajid as usual is optimistic about his film’s success. "I am making my next film with Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Amitabh Bachchan. It will start in July. The film is untitled and it is an out and out comedy. It will be a big success at the box-office," Sajid said.
Sajid relived his childhood with ‘Himmatwala’, "I grew
up in this era as a teenager. I am reprising the cinema of 80s, which was one
of the least experimenting and boring era of our industry.
"Personally, I don`t endorse remakes. I have nourished this childhood desire of mine with this film. I always wanted to make the film in my style," he said.
Sajid ventured into direction with `Darna Zaroori Hai` with
six other directors and then went to made, `Heyy Babyy`, `Housefull` and
`Housefull 2: The Dirty Dozen`
"With `Himmatwala`, I stepped out of comedy genre for the first time and entered into drama and action. I don`t want to make films to make a statement. I also don`t make film to gain personal respect. I would rather feel loved by making popular cinema which makes my audience happy," he said.
Sajid is also looking forward to work with Ajay.
