Sajid Nadiadwala and Salman

Filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala was overwhelmed when at the stroke of midnight, his friend and leading man of ‘Kick’ rolled in a cake shaped like a camera to celebrate his birthday.

To top it all, Sajid’s family also dropped in to wish him on the sets of his directorial debut ‘Kick’ in Film City here.


Said Sajid: “I am a year away from 50 and I guess I am getting more emotional. This was a very special birthday because I was shooting for my directorial debut and also my very prestigious production ‘Highway’ is being released. Family and friends like Salman made this birthday even more special.”

Sajid turned 49 on Tuesday.

Said a member of Sajid’s core crew: “It was just too overwhelming for Sajid. Salman, Jacqueline Fernandes, choreographer Ahmed Khan and the entire crew sang ‘Happy Birthday To You’ and other birthday songs tapping their feet, clapping and dancing. It was very heartfelt, spontaneous and unplanned.”
