All in the family for Jaan-E-Man

October 18, 2006
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala broke his usual policy of taking a very long time to decide on green-lighting a movie project and backed the $5 million Jaan-E-Mann in a matter of minutes. He was not at all worried either that his most expensive film yet - starring Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta - would be directed by a newcomer.

"When the choreographer happens to be my sister and the story-writer and the director happens to be her husband, I feel my film is in good hands," he said with a wide grin when he visited New York recently to promote the film.

He was talking about Farah Khan -- Bollywood's top choreographer who has also directed the hit Main Hoon Na, starring Shah Rukh Khan -- and her husband Shirish Kunder.

"Farah is more than a sister to me," Nadiadwala said, "and when she gave me a two-minute narration of a story idea Shirish had, I instantly said I will make it. I found the love story to be unusual. I felt we could make a film that was spectacular and heart-touching too."
