Sajid Khan: I’m arguably Mithun-da’s biggest fan

Sajid Khan, who has brought together three veteran actors – Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty in Housefull 2, says his personal favourite is Mithun-da whom he has idolised ever since he was a kid

“Dada is my number one star since I was born. I have never ever hero-worshipped anyone more than Dada. Arguably, I am Mithun-da’s biggest fan. I used to do his mimicry, I used to talk like him, I have seen every film of Dada,” said the 40-year-old director. “The only person in this entire film and in my all three films, whose first shot I took and touched his feet, that is my Dada. I love Dada so much,” he added.

Meanwhile, Sajid says the public sees him as a brand. That’s why after delivering a hit like Housefull, he feels a slight pressure of not disappointing his audience. “There is always pressure. If you make a flop film then you are under pressure to make a hit film. If you make a hit film then you are under pressure to surpass your own standard or at least deliver another hit because the audience also has expectations. “You know that Sajid Khan is a brand name and that you will get a family entertainer from him. I will never change that. The only pressure on me is that I should never disappoint my audience,” he added. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the film also features Boman Irani, Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, John Abraham, Shreyas Talpade, Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez, Zarine Khan and Shazahn Padamsee. It hits theatres on April 5.
