Everybody is hopping onto the filmmaking bandwagon. It’s good news. Nothing wrong with that. We need more and more people to make films, no matter if they come a cropper at the box office. Keep trying.

The latest aspirant in that regard is TV actor Sajid Hasan. News is that he wants to make a film based on the One Pound Fish guy Shahid Nazir’s life. It is indeed an idea worth giving a shot. The fact that Sajid H is going behind the camera for the project is reason enough to look forward to it. He is advised, though, that unlike the makers of Main Hoon Shahid Afridi who didn’t talk much to the cricketer during its production, he should keep Shahid Nazir in the loop all the way till the end.

I personally feel that amongst all he will come out as the most remarable..only if he goes by his natural incilnation and temperament but in case he lands into GEO hands like Bol {nonsense utter} than pity.

the guy has brains, and he's a natural with acting. I don't see many movies, but would like to see a movie he makes.
