Sajid Nadiadwala is a well-known film producer and the owner of the banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt Ltd. He has been associated with Bollywood entertainers like Judwa, Heyy Baby, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Highway and many more. He has been a part of the industry for 2 decades and has made a lot of friends. One of Sajid’s very close friends is superstar Salman Khan. The two have been friends ever since they worked together for the very first time in Judwa. Sajid was the producer of the film while Salman was seen in a double role. The two have worked together in 4 films since. These are Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega, Jeet and Jaanemann.
Sajid and Salman will be working together after 8 years, Janemann being their last film together in 2006, in the movie Kick. Sajid Nadiadwala is remaking a south Indian film with the same name, which released in May 2009. Ever since the film released, Sajid had shown interest in making the film in Hindi. This film has already been made in Tamil and its hindi remake Kick is going to release on the 25th of July 2014. When Sajid Nadiadwala could not find a suitable director to direct this movie, he decided to take matters in his own hand. Yes! Sajid is directing the movie too. This has a lot to do with Salman Khan. Apparently Salman has been trying to convince his good friend for many years to become a director, but his efforts were in vain. Finally, Sajid agreed to his friend’s suggestion and decided to direct Kick.
Their friendship is such that the actor does not even need to read the script that Sajid Nadiadwala offers him. He simply hears the story and signs the movie. He trusts Sajid’s sense of judgment and believes if Sajid feels he is suitable for a certain role, he does not need to challenge that. Sajid also has similar belief in Salman. He said “Salman has signed 80% of my films without reading the script, and almost all our films have done well.”
