The ultimate film buff

The ultimate film buff

Set Max has conceived a contest called Sabse Bada Deewana — of movies of course — across six cities and has very aptly selected Sajid Khan to meet the contestants and choose the big movie buff. Khan is the right choice we say because he really knows his movies well. And if you think he watches only the big banner movies then let’s tell you he’s watched even the crappiest ones with the same gusto.

For Sabse Bada Deewana, Khan kick-started the ground activity in cities like Mumbai, Kolkata, Bhopal, Jaipur, Surat and Lucknow last week where he will meet the aspiring deewanas and gauge their madness for the 70-mm magic.

“Mind you, we are not looking out for the craziest movie fan. We are looking for somebody who worships movies and and is a film purist. And since I am a complete film buff, I can easily sift the fake ones from the real deewanas. They just have to prove that their love for the movies is unquestionable.”
