Ajab Gazabb Love director Sanjay Gadhvi is fed up of Dhoom!

I’m not here only to make films for the Dhoom franchise, cries the director who has also made films like Kidnap and Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai but is best remembered for the bike movies

Director Sanjay Gadhvi considers himself lucky to be associated with the Dhoom franchise of Yash Raj Films, but says that he is not here to make only such films. From action thriller he shifted to romantic comedy with Ajab Gazabb Love, and wants to try his hand at other genres as well. “I want to make a pure drama, a horror film, and a musical after this. I don’t see myself making 20 films. I just feel that only four-five are there left inside me, and by the end of it, I want to know myself. I am not on planet Earth to make Dhooms. I have done it twice, I consider myself lucky to get the opportunity. At the end of the day, it’s just one of my films,” said Gadhvi in an interview.

The director made Kidnap after Dhoom:2, which didn’t garner much success at the box office. “I realised and understood the power of Dhoom when Kidnap released. It was like a slap on the face,” he said. “Kidnap was a serious film and now I have made an out and out comedy so that there is no way that this fails… I haven’t heard of a film failing because it’s too funny,” he added.

Even after making films like Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi HaiTere Liye and Kidnap, the director is still known as the one who made Dhoom. “That’s the one which had maximum impact. No matter what kind of films you make, the one that has maximum impact stays in people’s minds. Dhoom had a bigger impact than Dhoom:2. So that’s why I will be known as the guy who made Dhoom. I can be misinterpreted that I make only Dhoom kind of films. But I doubt the viewers even care so much,” he said.

According to Gadhvi, filmmaking is a very “personal skill”, and he makes films on certain subjects because he “likes” them. “At the same time I am conscious that it should be liked by everybody. As I go on spending time in the show business, I realise that I need to be more assertive. I am very much a producer’s director and want to make popular cinema. But I also want to get to know myself better and what better way to do that than to make films,” he said.

Ajab Gazabb Love, starring Jackky Bhagnani and Nidhi Subbaiah, releases on Friday, October 26.
