Sajid Khan was keeping a low profile after the release of his directorial ‘Humshakals’ (2014) was slated by the audiences and critics. However, when talking about it recently, Khan said it wasn’t that bad a film at the box office.
“After��Humshakals, the Sajid Khan bashing which followed, that was a little unnecessary. Genuinely. But I wasn’t like ‘I’ll show everybody’, No, I have made fun of film industry for 20 years on TV so that much is justified,” said Khan in a recent interview, as reported by Pinkvilla.
He added, “For 20 years I did that- this film is��flop, that song is stolen, but I used to do that in jest.��Humshakals��wasn’t that big a flop. It did a business of 65��crore… With me, people were reviewing me and not my films, which is okay”.
Khan also revealed that his bold statements have made people react a certain way to him. “I used to make those statements without realising it’s going to come back to me someday. I thought, take it (criticism), enjoy it, they (people) will forget after six months. But if you make statements, they will come back. I realised I have to be politically correct and easy. I was taking myself too seriously, I had become rude. Which I don’t think I am anymore”, he stated.
Khan is said to be readying himself for a new project based on a Korean film.
