Failure of 'Himmatwala' my fault: Sajid Khan
Mumbai: Sajid Khan, whose 'Himmatwala' remake starring Ajay Devgan tanked at the box office, said he chose the wrong project at the wrong time and the failure of the film was his sole responsibility.
"As the captain of the ship, it is entirely my fault. I let down my audiences and I hope I will never do that again. Somewhere you have to take responsibility for doing things. I did not commit a crime. I did not make a bad film I made a wrong film," Sajid told us.
Sajid started his career as a full-fledged director with blockbuster 'Heyy Baby' and repeated the performance with 'Housefull' and 'Housefull 2'.
"The times have changed very fast. A lot of films made on the lines of 'Himmatwala' have not done well as the cinema is changing. I made the wrong film at the wrong time. But I have decided to move ahead," he said.
Sajid thinks his name is associated with comedy films and that went against the film.
"Somewhere people couldn't digest and understand whether this film was a comedy or not. They were in shock that this is not a comedy. So I will make sure my next films are comedy," he added.
The failure of the film did not jolt Sajid but surprised him.
"I was happy it (film) covered the money and did not incur any loss. But it did not achieve the kind of success I had hoped. I am a fast-learner. (Though) I don't take myself seriously, I take my work seriously. I have moved ahead and I am making a typical Sajid Khan, funny entertainer film," he said.
