With India reaching the finals of T-20 by defeating mighty South Africa yesterday evening, one goes back to the India-Pakistan match when Sajid Khan had introduced his Humshakals to the viewers. Soon after India won its match, Sajid had predicted that not only would the winning streak continue match after match, India will also win the cup.
“Guess his prophecy has pretty much come true till this point at least,” says a close associate of the filmmaker, “India weren’t really favorites when they entered the tournament, courtesy their recent drubbing overseas. However Sajid, just like countless fans of Indian cricket, stood by the team. He was happy that First Look of Humshakals was launched on the day when the country was celebrating. He just had an inkling that there would be no stopping Indian cricket team now.”
With an unbeaten record so far and a major victory in the semi – finals too, one now awaits the final frontier being crossed when India take on Sri Lanka tomorrow. With a repeat of ICC World Cup 2011 finals expected, it could well be celebration time again for Sajid and his entire team of Humshakals tomorrow evening.
