He has not driven any film to box office success in the recent past. Neither has he signed on a host of new roles. But actor Fardeen Khan explains that it’s not his acting capabilities (or lack thereof) that are behind this decision. Instead, it’s because he plans to turn producer in 2010.

“I will be turning producer this year. In the next few months, I will be announcing two movies. I will be featuring in them.”

Asked if one of them will be the remake of the hit film


, Fardeen replies, “The


remake will happen but not right away. The film is very close to my heart and I’d like to make it when I have a little more experience. I’ll start with two other entertaining films before that.”

And is he a part of his uncle Sanjay Khan’s mega epic film,


, which features Hrithik Roshan in the lead? Fardeen responds, “He’s not spoken to me about it, so I would not wish to say anything on this apart from the fact that it is an ambitious project and I wish my uncle all the best.”

The actor, who stars in

Dulha Mil Gaya

, recounts his own wedding day. “It was pretty straightforward — a registered wedding in church. I remember Natasha (his wife) walking down the aisle towards me, followed by her bridesmaids. We then read out the vows we’d written to each other. That made the ceremony really meaningful.”

Apart from production plans, Fardeen is also starring in a fair share of sequels, including sequels to

All The Best


No Entry

. About the latter, he says, “Since producer Boney Kapoor has announced that

No Entry 2

will have the original cast, it’s safe to assume that I’ll be a part of it.”
