Sajid-Farhad to direct serious film post ‘Housefull 3’
Mumbai, May 25 (IANS) Filmmaker duo Sajid-Farhad, who are gearing up for the release of “Housefull 3”, are hoping to work on a “serious” movie which will be high on entertainment quotient.
Sajid told IANS: “There are two scripts which we are working on and one of it is a serious film. If things go well, then our next film would be a serious film. Though it will be a serious film, we can’t leave our commercial touch.”
“Even if it’s a serious subject, there will be an entertaining touch. We have grown up watching films like ‘Sholay’ and ‘Khuda Gawah’, so our film will be high on entertainment quotient.”
Sajid-Farhad, who had written films like “Golmaal Returns”, “Golmaal 3”, “Chennai Express” and “Singham Returns”, turned director with the film “Entertainment”.
They are currently busy promoting their film “Hosuefull 3”, which stars actors like Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon.
Sajid said while comedy is something they enjoy, adult comedies is a space they are not convinced by.
“We want to stay away from adult comedies. For us, family audience is the most important thing. An entire family should enjoy the film together. We can’t do this… Due respect to films like ‘Grand Masti’, but we brothers try to stay away from it.”
