One finds Sanjay Gadhvi in a rather candid mood as his film Ajab Gazabb Love gears up for release in a few days from now. While the musical romcom is making its presence felt already with good buzz building around the Jackky Bhagnani-Nidhi Subbaiah starrer, Gadhvi explains the reason behind opting for a film of this genre instead of the action oriented themes that he had excelled in till a few years back. He also reveals that he was sure about not doing anything remotely similar to Dhoom, the franchise which he helmed for two instalments, for some more time to come at the least.
“See, I am trying to do every kind of movie because the process by itself is so much fun. Every film makes you know yourself better so why to repeat yourself? If that was the idea, I would have made Dhoom:3. I wanted to move on and explore something else. Otherwise after Dhoom:2, the most natural thing would have been to do Dhoom:3“, he says.
He doesn’t hesitate in admitting that the non-performance of his last release, Sanjay Dutt-Imran Khan starrer Kidnap, did play in his mind.
“The backlash that came after Kidnap made me sure that I want people to come, have a good time in my film, forget worries and don’t worry about something serious to ponder over. My next film had to be light hearted. After the lack of intended response from Kidnap, the idea was to have some fun. This is where Ajab Gazabb Love came in handy.”
Now here is hoping that the right intentions also translate well on the big screen once this Vashu Bhagnani production releases all over on Wednesday, 24th October.
