Sajid Khan’s last film HUMSHAKALS was a debacle and it was highly criticised by the masses and critics alike. Saif Ali Khan, who was one of the actors in the films, reportedly also went onto say that it was a mistake. But unlike the nawab, Ram Kapoor, who was also a part of the film at a recent interview said that HUMSHAKALS was one of the biggest successes in his career.

When asked him how a film like HUMSHAKALS fits in his scheme of films, he said, “For me, HUMSHAKALS was the biggest success in a way. The reason I said yes to HUMSHAKALS was for a very detailed career move. Before HUMSHAKALS, I was getting a lot of scripts which were either very serious, intense, festival movies like an UDAAN or small urban films, multiplexers, metro centric like Bombay-Delhi audience. I was not getting offered a single massy, masala, commercial film, not even one.”
Telling us about the reason behind agreeing to do HUMSHAKALS, Ram said, “When I decided to do a Sajid Khan film, my manager and I discussed that if we said yes to the film and it doesn’t do well, then also we put out a clear message to the industry that I am available for anything. And if it would do well, then it would be just an icing on the cake.”
“I am not only wanting to do films like UDAAN or festival or serious films, I am available for everything. After HUMSHAKALS, the mainstream commercial films or the scripts that are coming to me, shows me on a month to month basis, what a big success HUMSHAKALS was for me. If it wasn’t for HUMSHAKALS, there would be no KUCH KUCH LOCHA HAI. People wouldn’t even consider a Ram Kapoor for this kind of a commercial film with Sunny Leone because they thought Ram doesn’t do films like these. Because of HUMSHAKALS they saw Ram Kapoor is willing to do anything. He is willing to a Sajid Khan film; wax his whole body, wear drag, anything, there is no restriction. So, HUMSHAKALS has been one of my biggest successes in my career,” he added.
Also starring Sunny Leone, Evelyn Sharma, Navdeep Chhabra & others, KUCH KUCH LOCHA HAI is directed by Devang Dholakia. Produced by K.K Agarwal, the film is set to release on 8th May, 2015.
