Heyy Babyy director Sajid Khan is always there when it comes to his best buddy and favourite producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
The director has been turning down offers by other production houses only because of his loyalty to Sajid Nadiadwala his first producer.
Recently, Sajid turned down a 9-crore offer to direct a film for Shailendra Singh of Percept Picture Company!
Sajid confirms, "Yes. I did get that offer but I declined. I told them I had to direct Sajid Nadiadwala's film as he was the only person to give me a break with HB. Not just Percept, other corporates have offered me 11 crore and a percentage of the profits."
But Sajid has turned it down because he is very attached to Nadiadwala. " He's my best friend and I have a three film contract with him"
After Sajid finishes his three films which he says in his typical Khan candour are ' future blockbusters" only will he think of working for outside producers.
" I will definitely work outside but only after I finish my commitment to Nadiadwala Grandson."
He is all set to direct his next venture for the same company titled Housefull.
" It will be the biggest hit of 2009. it's called Housefull because that's what all the theatres playing the film will be."
Housefull stars his favourite hero Akshay Kumar with Riteish Deshmukh and Deepika Padukone.
