Sajid Khan’s Next on Revenge Drama

After directing two comedy flicks, Heyy Babyy and Housefull, Sajid Khan wants to direct a revenge action drama in his next , for which he is collaborating with director Shimit Amin, writers Shiraz Ahmed (Race, Wanted) and Sameer Sharma (Bhoot, Swades) for the script.

Vashu Bhagnani will produce the film. Khan says that Sharma and he have been friends for 12 years. Sajid says,

“I was taken aback when Shimit, whom I’ve only met once or twice, said he’d like to write the film with me.”

I was impressed with Race. I think it’s one of the best-written thrillers in three decades. So we got Shiraz to join the team. We sit together, brainstorm and write.”

“After completing the first draft, I can say we had a great time working together. One guy would be walking all over the room. Another would be slouched on a couch and another keying the script away. Apart from writing, we ate lots of food.”

When asked about the cast members, Sajid says,

“No one has been approached yet. Only after locking the script we’ll be sure which actors to cast.”

Khan will also direct the Housefull sequel for producer Sajid Nadiadwala with the original cast. The director says,

“It’s a challenge to create a screenplay five times funnier with more actors and more chaos. Both the films will take off next year, but I don’t know which one rolls first.”
