David Dhawan is having the time of his laugh. Fans of David Dhawan's cinema are bound to get withdrawal symptoms. But the King Of Comedy is taking a long break from filmmaking.
"It's been a while since I've been making films back-to-back. I need to rejuvenate my energies. When Nach Baliye was offered to me I just grabbed it as a chance to move away from direction for a while. This is my first television assignment and my first acting assignment. And I was introduced by Salman Khan and Govinda on Nach Baliye. What better beginning to my acting career could I hope for? Now I'm completely consumed by the whole process of watching these young people dancing .We've all become like an extended family. When a couple leaves the show it's heartbreaking for me."
David won"t direct another film probably until June 2008. "I'll continue to do my scripting. But no direction for a while. I've been working very hard."
His next feature film will probably feature Govinda and Salman again. "It will be a kind of sequel to Partner. Everyone wants to see the two of them back together. And we can't disappoint the audience."
