David Dhawan: Sajid Nadiadwala gives his directors the freedom to follow their vision
As producer Sajid Nadiadwala's 'Dishoom' opens in cinemas, it further consolidates his relationship with good friend, director David Dhawan. The action adventure, which is helmed by Rohit Dhawan and stars John Abraham, Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Akshaye Khanna, sees David's sons collaborate with their father's producer buddy.
Recalling his equation with Sajid, David says, "My friendship with him goes back a long way, when 'Shola Aur Shabnam' (1992) had released. At that time itself, he had the makings of a big producer. I was helming a couple of films simultaneously. Salman (Khan) and he were good friends when I did Judwaa (1997) with them. Sajid has always been an amazing guy to work with. He has struggled a lot to take his company where it is today." They later collaborated on 'Mujhse Shaadi Karogi' (2004).
Talking about his friend working with his sons in 'Dishoom', he says, "When Rohit narrated the script to Sajid, he loved it. He gives his directors the freedom to make a film as per their vision. Sajid took Rohit and Varun's responsibility and has taken good care of them. He loves Varun and is all praises for his sincerity."
David, who is making 'Judwaa 2' with Sajid and Varun, says the former continues to have strong ties with his old distributors and friends. "The fact that his old associates are also there with him shows how good he is," he says, adding, "Over the years, we have become like a family. I'm looking forward to making 'Judwaa 2' with him. He's a wonderful person and a great producer to work with."
