SAJID NADIADWALA and IMTIAZ ALI
Post the super success of LOVE AAJ KAL, it's a problem of aplenty for film maker Imtiaz Ali. Keeping his sanity intact and picking up fewer but far more prestigious projects, Imtiaz has green lighted a film for Sajid Nadiadwala. The film is expected to go on floors in the latter half of this year and is expected to release in 2011.
"Yes, Imtiaz would be making a film for my production house later this year. It would be after my next film KICK which is soon going on floors", confirms Sajid Nadiadwala who is looking forward to an eventful 2010 ahead with as many as four films in different stages of production.
While HOUSEFULL, which has been directed by Sajid Khan (of HEYY BABYY fame) is complete and all set for 30th April release, shooting of ANJAANA ANJAANI, which has Siddharth Anand at the helm of affairs, is progressing fast as well. KICK is going through scripting while plans are being put together for the Imtiaz Ali film.
Since Imtiaz Ali has made three back to back romantic comedies in the form of LOVE AAJ KAL, JAB WE MET and SOCHA NA THA, does one expect an outing belonging to similar genre from the film that he would be making for Sajid Nadiawala?
"It would be too early to divulge on the subject as we are yet to lock it", states Nadiadwala who has stayed on to be one of the most prolific independent producers in the country for 25 years now, "Imtiaz takes his own time to script a film and that's good because what he delivers at the end is simply superb. We will make other formal announcements at the right time."
