Sajid Khan is dedicating his second directorial venture
Housefull to the seven filmmakers who have inspired him
Says the excited director, "It came to me in a flash this week
that there are many directors to whom I owe my career as a
filmmaker. I short listed the seven directors who have made the
maximum impact on me. And I'll be putting in a credit card thanking
them in Housefull."
The lucky 7 are Manmohan Desai, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, K.
Raghvendra Rao, K Bappaiah, Narendra Bedi, Prakash Mehra and Blake
Says the enthusiastic director, "These are the directors who
have most inspired me, provoked me into becoming a movie director.
I love masala movies. And these directors made the films I can
never get tired of watching. I had dedicated my first film Heyy
Babyy to all the girls who agreed to make guest appearances in
the title song."
Sajid is aware some names in his list of 7 would surprise
people. "But I feel someone like Narendra Bedi who made Jawani
Diwani and Adalat shaped our commercial cinema. Both
me and my sister Farah are hardcore commercial directors."
Though Farah has started directing her film Tees Maar
Khan, Sajid is keeping as far away as possible from his
sister's project. "I haven't read her script. She hasn't read mine.
Though we'd give our lives for one another, we're two different
individuals. She is extroverted. I am more into myself. I like to
spend my evenings alone at home watching films every evening."
Sajid's greatest joy these days is exchanging Bollywood trivia
with Boman Irani. "Boman and Viveck Vaswani are the most
knowledgeable movie people I know. Add me to the list. If Boman was
not an actor I'd still be friends with him just to share movie info
