Promos of HOUSEFULL have managed to attract eyeballs soon after they were seen with KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK and TEEN PATTI. A fun film in the offering, it has reaffirmed the statement that its maker Sajid Nadiadwala has made time ands again, which is that he always has an eye on the commercial aspects of films and believes in entertaining audience.
"I have made all kind of films. Some of them have been love stories, others have been comedies, a few have also been action dramas. JEET, JUDWAA, HEYY BABYY - they all have belonged to different genres but then they all have been commercial to the core. I know for sure that my films can't be dark cinema", smiles Nadiadwala.
Since his is one of the few production houses which have managed to stay afloat despite the bad times that the industry has faced in last few years, doesn't he too feel like getting multiple projects on floors, pick up small budget films as well and take an experimental route?
"See, till the time we don't become studios and start making 15 different films, it won't be feasible to get experimenting", says Nadiadwala in an honest tone, "In any case, I have always been part of big cinema. My father also used to make only big films. Do you know that he had made TAJ MAHAL way back in the 60s? Our family just can't think small."
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.
