Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh has become an all-time blockbuster. The film is a remake of South super hit Arjun Reddy however, not many know that filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala initially had the remake rights of the movie. In fact, he also has the remake rights of RX 100 and is launching Suniel Shetty’s son Ahan Shetty with its remake.
When asked why did he part with the remake rights, Nadiadwala said, “I bought the rights of two films, Arjun Reddy and RX 100. I have never made an adult certified film in my life, so when I saw it, I loved the film but I had issues with a lot of scenes. Murad Khetani is a very good friend of mine, so I gave him the rights of Arjun Reddy as a gift. Murad also loved the film a lot and when I gave him the rights of the film, I told him that this film will cross Rs. 100 crores at the box office and I was honestly not aware that it will do this kind of business.”
Talking about RX 100, he stated, “RX 100 has the same kind of passion and people even say that the characterization of the protagonists in both the films is very similar. RX 100 is a cult film and the action in it is very intense showing how madly in love the lead actor is. I might be one of the only producers who has launched both the father (Suniel Shetty) and son (Ahan Shetty).”
Sajid’s last two releases, Super 30 and Chhichhore performed well at the box-office and now, the filmmaker is looking forward to the release of Housefull 4 and Baaghi 3. He will soon start working on his second directorial Kick 2 starring Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez.
