Sajid Khan has promised Arjun Rampal that his character of Major Rao in HOUSEFULL will look so fabulous on screen that his price tag would shoot up to as much as Rs. 5 crores post the release of the film. That's not all as he also made a loud and clear announcement that the film would do the same for Arjun Rampal what Manmohan Desai's multi starrer AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY did for Vinod Khanna.
"Well, uske moonh mein ghee shakkar agar woh aisa sochta hai", Arjun is a tad shy when reminded of the incident, "I hope the forecast of 5 crore tag is true. As for the character making an impact on screen, I can trust Sajid because he is one guy who is supremely confident about his work. He knows what he wants, he is very clear that he is making an entertainer and his target audience is an entire family. He makes universal films and wants people from different parts of India to follow his work. I love that confidence in him."
Another loud declaration made by the director has been that the film would be the biggest hit ever in everyone's career. Legend has it that on the first day of the shoot of HOUSEFULL, the young film maker handed over a letter to each of the stars that read - 'Welcome to the biggest hit ever of your career'.
"Can you believe that", says Arjun in an animated tone, "The moment he handed me over that letter, I was like 'Yeah man, this is really crazy stuff. But then when you get something like this in writing, it automatically instills similar energy in you as well. You really want to give your best because you know that he won't be expecting and accepting anything lesser from you."
