Sajid Nadiadwala turns director

MUMBAI: Sajid Nadiadwala, who has produced over a dozen films with various top stars and given break to some new directors, will wield the megaphone for his next production, Kick.

Kick will star Salman Khan in the lead, while the other star cast yet to be finalised.

Nadiadwala, who started out as a production assistant in his Uncle Habib Nadiadwala?s production company over 30 years back, turned producer in late 80 with Zulm Ki Hukumat starring Dharmendra and Govinda. The film, which faced a lot of hurdles, finally saw release in 1992. After braving some setbacks in his early productions, he finally saw his first hit, Jeet in 1996 followed by Judwaa the very next year.

Since then Nadiadwala has produced 14 films with a tremendous success ratio as well as establishing his banner, Nadiadwala Grandson, as one of the top three independent production houses in the Hindi film industry.

When asked what made him take this decision, Nadiadwala attributes it to Salman Khan who first made this suggestion almost 10 years back and has been doing so often. "I am now ready to take the plunge," he said.

For Nadiadwala, who has produced five films with Salman Khan and is known to be actively involved in all aspects of his home productions, turning to direction was inevitable and a matter of time.
