It's unusual that the cast and crew of Sajid Khan's directorial debut Heyy Babyy! have bonded so well. So much so, that they're throwing parties to catch up with each other now that filming is over!
Says Sajid Khan, "It was Fardeen's idea to have a wrap-up party at his bungalow in Juhu. He and Natasha (his wife) organised it."Says a guest present at the party, "It was an intimate dinner party with about 12 people present, including Sajid Nadiadwala, Sajid Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Akshay Kumar, writer Milap Zaveri, Hemal, the cinematographer, the first assistant director and a few more." Vidya was out of town and couldn't make it.
Back to TV
Adds Sajid, "We hung out, cracked jokes and played pool. It was a potluck party. Everyone brought food.
Natasha and Fardeen, who are great cooks, made some really good food. Akshay and Milap got vegetarian dishes. I brought my appetite!"
Sajid says that filming for Heyy Babyy! is over, and only some patchwork scenes and a song are left to be shot. He adds that the unit developed an amazing bonhomie during filming.
"During the shoot, we would sit in Riteish's palatial make-up van and eat each other's food. Akshay and Fardeen's ghar ka khana and Sajid's khichda were always awesome."
Now that Heyy Babyy! is nearly done, Khan is on the lookout for a job again. He says, "I'm itching to get back to work.
I need money. I'm looking forward to doing more TV shows, stage shows and hosting awards functions and corporate events.
I stopped doing TV for over eight months and I've missed it. Currently, I'm doing the Haff Hour Laff Hour Show. I recently started shooting."
