Mumbai: Sajid Khan, whose third directorial venture ‘Housefull 2’ is ready to release, says he and his producer Sajid Nadiadwala never make films to earn money.
"I know when he produces films, he doesn`t do so to earn money. Whenever someone has made films to earn money, they have never worked. He loves movies, I love movies," the 39-year-old said in an interview.
"We want to make films which we can look back at, our kids can enjoy, our families can enjoy," he added.
The host-turned-actor-turned-director says he tries to keep the budget tight.
"He (Nadiadwala) trusts me a lot. He goes with my vision. I fight with him a lot that why are you giving such a huge budget and spending so much, I will save money. But he says spend. He spends a lot," said Sajid.
Sajid, whose directorial debut ‘Heyy Babyy’ and his second film ‘Housefull’ were produced by Nadiadwala, feels bonding between a producer and a director is important.
"Fortunately, we don`t look at each other as producer and director. We always believe we are best friends. He is like an elder brother. We are like family and I know he`ll give his life for me and I will give my life for him," he said.
The star cast of the film is described as the dirty dozen and Akshay Kumar, Asin Thottumkal, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez, Ritesh Deshmukh, Zarine Khan, Shreyas Talpade, Shazahn Padamsee, Mithun Chakraborty, Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor and Boman Irani feature in it.
‘Housefull 2’ is releasing April 5.
