Film­maker Sa­jid Na­di­ad­wala has signed Farhad Samji (of the Farhad–sa­jid wri­ter­di­rec­tor duo) to di­rect his next pro­duc­tion. In a span of seven years, Farhad has di­rected as many as 11 films that have en­tered the ` 100-crore club. Sa­jid-farhad were the writ­ers for Gol­maal Re­turns, Gol­maal 3, Gol­maal Again, House­full 2, House­full 3, Sing­ham, Sing­ham Re­turns, Dil­wale, Bol Bachchan, Ready, Chen­nai Ex­press, and Jud­waa 2. The two col­lab­o­rated with Na­di­ad­wala on House­full 2, House­full 3, and the re­cently re­leased Jud­waa 2. Con­firm­ing the news, Sa­jid says, “I en­joy work­ing with Farhad, and our pre­vi­ous films have been ap­pre­ci­ated by the au­di­ence. I be­lieve we have one thing in com­mon: our pas­sion to keep the au­di­ence en­ter­tained through our films. We hope to cre­ate great con­tent this time as well.” Talk­ing about sign­ing his first solo film un­der the Na­di­ad­wala Grand­son En­ter­tain­ment ban­ner, Farhad says, “Sa­jid sir is one pro­ducer any di­rec­tor would love to work with. His con­tri­bu­tion has been cre­ative and that can be eas­ily chalked out from the past records of Na­di­ad­wala Grand­son.” Elated by the suc­cess of Jud­waa 2 and Gol­maal Again, the writer says, “I feel like I’m on top of the world, but I share the credit with ex­tremely tal­ented di­rec­tors like David Dhawan sir and Ro­hit Shetty. This is just the be­gin­ning, be­cause the road to suc­cess is un­der con­struc­tion. Suc­cess comes be­fore work only in a dic­tionary.” Speak­ing about the new film, Farhad says “A full-on en­ter­tain­ment masala block­buster is what Sa­jid sir and I have de­liv­ered in the past when­ever we have worked to­gether, and we will con­tinue this trend.” Are any more films in the off­ing? “I have two or three scripts in mind, and Sa­jid sir and I will zero in on those in about a month, and we will an­nounce it soon,” Farhad says.
