Mumbai: Riding on the wave of two back-to-back blockbusters – ‘Heyy Babyy’ and ‘Housefull’, filmmaker Sajid Khan is a relieved man, exuding with confidence.
Bollywood’s funny-man turned director, who seems to have cracked the secret formula of making comedies, recently spoke at length in a TV interview on how he gets B-town stars to work in his projects.
A self-proclaimed movie buff, Sajid, loves making farcical films because they are extremely entertaining as he says, "I don`t want to bore the audience."
When enquired about how he gets to rope in some of the biggest stars of Bollywood to act in his film, Sajid was at his witty best, "I just tell them listen, your last two films haven`t done well, do you want a hit? (laughs), don`t care about critics, this movie will be a hit, you`ll be liked, your price will go up, your fan following will go up, so they say OK."
For Sajid, Bollywood and politics has something in common as, "You abuse each other, next day you form a coalition or work together, there are no permanent friendships or enmities," he said.
