The one thing that you need to hand over to Housefull director Sajid Khan is his confidence. His new statement - "Housefull will be the biggest Hit of 2010" - has raised eyebrows, but knowing Sajid and his penchant for providing entertainment, the statement has only enhanced the curiosity for the film.
"It's not over-confidence, mind you. I know that Housefull will work big time at the box-office. This one's purely for the entertainment-seeking audience," Sajid explains his stand, "The reason why 95% of films fail year after year is because we aren't providing the audience with what they want: Loads of entertainment. Housefull will do that. Housefull will bring 'house full' boards back."
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar, the lead man of Housefull, is so gung ho about the film that he gifted a watch to Sajid, after the actor watched the final cut of the film.
While on Akshay, there's talk that Sajid was instrumental in getting Akshay on board in Tees Maar Khan, which Sajid's sister Farah Khan is directing. Reportedly, when Shahrukh Khan was toying with which project to start first - Anubhav Sinha's or Farah's, Sajid suggested that Farah shouldn't wait endlessly and decided to arrange a meeting with Akshay and Farah.
"Farah and I don't discuss work. In fact, I don't even know what the script of Tees Maar Khan is," Sajid states, "I swear, I didn't even know Farah had met Akshay and spoken to her about the film, till Sajid (Nadiadwala) and Farah called me over and broke the news. Nor did Akshay ever discuss Tees Maar Khan with me. Farah has a mind of her own." Point noted!
