Producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who made his directorial debut with Kick last year, says Salman Khan encouraged him to direct films and that the superstar has a quality of spotting talent.
Apart from Kick, the duo worked together in films like Judwaa and Har Dil Jo Pyar <g data-gr-id="24">Karegaa</g>, and they have a “great” relationship”.
“Our families know each other and share a great relationship. On the work front, the success ratio has been 100 percent. Salman encouraged me to be a director.
He has this trait to find talent in people,” Nadiadwala, who has been a producer for about 25 years, told reporters after picking up the Best Debut Direction award at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend and Awar <g data-gr-id="27">ds</g> here on Sunday.
“After I reach Mumbai, the teams of our successful films like ‘Heropanti’ and ‘Kick’ will celebrate together,” he said.
Despite winning the award, he isn’t too keen on directing another film <g data-gr-id="23">any time</g> soon.
“I am still not ready to direct films. There are <g data-gr-id="25">lot</g> of projects on my plate right now, so I won’t direct any film as of now,” he said.
As a producer, he has films like Housefull 3 and a Baaghi in his kitty.
