Tak­ing over “House­full 4” wasn’t tough: Farhad Samji

Financial Chronicle - - NONE OF MY BUSINESS -

Writer-di­rec­tor Farhad Samji, who re­placed Sa­jid Khan to helm the fourth in­stall­ment of “House­full” af­ter the lat­ter was named in the #MeToo move­ment, says tak­ing over the com­edy film mid-way was not a “big creative jerk”. “House­full 4” was be­ing di­rected by Sa­jid and was sup­posed to be his come­back to di­rec­tion af­ter his 2014 box of­fice de­ba­cle “Humshakals” but he stepped down from the project fol­low­ing mul­ti­ple sex­ual mis­con­duct ac­cu­sa­tion against him. Farhad, who also di­rected the third in­stall­ment of the hit fran­chise, said since he was in­volved in the writ­ing process of “House­full 4”, things were easy. “It (tak­ing over) wasn’t dif­fi­cult at all. I was al­ready writ­ing screen­play and di­a­logues for the film. I have a habit of nar­rat­ing a film with voice mod­u­la­tion, mimicry. I am also present on the sets. I was on sets even on the ear­lier sched­ules (of the film). -PTI
