After remixing Amitabh Bachchan's
hit song Apni to Jaise Taise for Housefull, filmmaker
Sajid Khan is all set to work with the megastar in his next
Sajid, 41, who is an ardent fan of Amitabh Bachchan, said his
upcoming comedy will also see Saif Ali Khan and good friend
Riteish Deshmukh in pivotal roles.
"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 told PTI.
Sajid's latest release is Ajay Devgn starrer
Himmatwala, a remake of 1983 film of the same name starring
Jeetendra and Sridevi.
"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 started his career with an anthology film Darna
Zaroori Hai with six other directors and then shifted to
comedy and 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 looking forward to work with Ajay in more films
because he feels that they share same sensibilities.
"Ajay is one the finest actors our industry has produced.
I am also writing my second script keeping him in mind. We are
friends since our college days and I have been wanting to work
with him for ages," he added.
