Sajid Khan to direct Akshay only for Nadiadwala
By Subhash K. Jha
Mumbai, Sep 2, Akshay Kumar only for Sajid Nadiadwala — that’s the amicable agreement that Sajid Khan has reached with his friend and producer before walking into an outside project.
“I think it’s only fair that I give my directors the freedom to work with other producers. If I showed trust in Sajid Khan by giving him a break in ‘Heyy Babyy’ and then ‘Housefull’, Akshay Kumar also showed trust in Sajid Khan. So we’ve decided not to break the team. Whenever Sajid Khan will direct Akshay, I’ll produce,” said Naiadwala.
The trio already have a project ready to go on the floors in the middle of 2011.
Nadiadwala confirmed, “Sajid Khan is working on a script for Akshay. And we hope to start in mid-2011 after Sajid finishes his film for Vashu Bhagnani.”
Both Bhagnani and Sajid took Nadiadwala’s consent before working together.
“They both took my blessings. And I was most happy to give it to them as long as their project didn’t star Akshay.”
