Sajid Khan talks about Ram Gopal Varma, his alleged brawl with his watchman, his sexual inclination and much more…
Not many are aware of it but Sajid Khan made his directorial debut with the short film in Ram Gopal Varma‘s Darna Mana Hai. Interestingly, the man who is known for his comedy as a performer and a filmmaker chose to make his directing debut with a horror. And for all those who haven’t seen the film, it’s quite good. Anyways, when I caught up with Sajid Khan last month on the occasion of the 10 anniversary of Heyy Babyy, his first full length feature film, I asked him about his association with Ram Gopal Varma, how he surprised everyone by choosing to direct a horror film and why RGV shouldn’t be written off despite a slew of flops. In a BollywoodLife exclusive he said that Ram Gopal Varma shouldn’t be written off just because he gave few flops. He asserted that it all depends on a Friday. He even included Hollywood films as well and stated that every five years a big star is written off but once he delivers a successful film people go, “Oh he’s back!”
He however mentioned that it’s sad if people are saying that he’s finished and maintained that people might be saying the same about him. Giving examples of Hollywood stars like Nicholas Cage, Robert Downey Jr and John Travolta, he said that all it takes is one Friday for anyone to bounce back.
Further talking about his horror short in Darna Mana Hai, he revealed that he is a very “Bhoot fearing person”. He also revealed that he gets very scared of the paranormal activities. He also claimed that the day he decides to make a scary film, he’ll end up surprising many with the shock value in it.
He also spoke about the rumours that have been doing the rounds about his drinking habits, hitting his watchman or even his sexual inclination. He refuted all of it and went on to spell it out for each and everyone when he said, “Main Gay Nahin Hoon.”
