Saif Ali Khan was in London earlier this week to promote his home production Go Goa Gone.
In an interview with Bollywood reporter Sunny Malik, the actor-producer recalled a time when his business partner Dinesh Vijan (Illuminati Films) jokingly asked him whether he is making the film just for Kunal Khemu, who is in a relationship with Saif’s younger sister Soha Ali Khan.
“I always wanted to do something different and new in production. I did not just want to make regular films that we make. That was maybe the influence behind it. But I do strongly remember that no one wanted to make this film, at all. There were many times when Dinesh told me ‘Are you making this film for Kunal? Why don’t you just give him the money? Why do you have to make a movie?’ (Laughs) It is really funny,” said the Race 2 actor.
“But you know, there are a lot of films that start of this way. At least, everyone got behind it. I think, they backed the film because I was asking them to do so. I am happy that it worked out. Maybe next time I’ll say something they won’t run away (laughs). It’s always a risk,” added Khan.
Go Goa Gone is out this Friday.
