His sister worked with Shahrukh Khan in MAIN HOON NAA and OM SHANTI OM before roping in Akshay Kumar for TEES MAAR KHAN. He himself has worked with Akshay Kumar in HEYY BABYY and now HOUSEFULL. However, Sajid insists that there are no uncomfortable moments for him when it comes to Shah Rukh Khan and he continues to share great relationship with him till date.
"In fact all these talks about Farah choosing to rope in Akshay instead of Shahrukh is nothing but media hype", says Sajid, "Ever since the news came about Akshay doing Farah film, I have had dinner with Shahrukh and gang 4-5 times. There is no strain in our relationship."
While he is close to Akshay Kumar, he had requested Shah Rukh Khan to come on board for a special song and dance number in HEYY BABYY. Is there something bigger and better for King Khan on the anvil?
"In fact my dream project is to get him and Akshay together for a film. They have been seen earlier in DIL TO PAAGAL HAI and HEYY BABYY but never as parallel leads. I am confident one day I would be able to conceive a project where both would be seen together in equal roles", concludes Sajid hopefully.
