It is heartening to see others getting happy for you and contributing to the celebration in their own little way. Same was felt by the ace producer of Indian cinema Sajid Nadiadwala some time back, when the news of him turning a director came out as a surprise to many. He is finally debuting as a director with his ‘close to heart’ story of the telugu movie ‘Kick’. He is making a remake to the film and also maintaining the same name. On being suggested and convinced by best friend Salman Khan to turn a director with Kick, who is also starring in the film, Sajid had no other option than agreeing.
Sajid Nadiadwala believes that all the people, who have been there for as well as with him in his growing years, are very lucky for him. He immediately met all of them, in order to attain the most needed inspiration and appreciation. The newly turned director says, “I know it sounds filmy, but I want the blessings of all the people who are important and close to me. I even met all my directors (David), my actors (Govinda), and Salim (Khan) uncle.” Good buddies and family friends, Sajid Khan as well as Shirish Kunder also gave their thumbs up to Sajid Nadiadwala as a sign of good luck.
Everyone also gave him the best advice they could give. Salim uncle (Salman Khan’s father) enlightened Sajid about ways to build a scene and how to get the maximum message sent out with the minimum lines. Director and friend David Dhawan told Sajid Nadiadwala to not to worry about the location, when he has Salman Khan in the movie, which is one significant thing to concentrate on. Director Imtiaz Ali, who is working with the talented director turned producer in two films, advised him, “Just feel it! Get yourself into it and you can’t go wrong.”
With all of this, it was showering blessings and advices for Sajid. He says, “For me, it was a nice basket of a lot of thoughts!”
