BAAGHI 2 DIRECTOR AHMED KHAN ON JACQUELINE FERNANDEZ’S EK DO TEEN: WE’RE TAKING IT TO ANOTHER GENERATION, GIVING IT A LIFE
Ahmed Khan made his directorial debut in 2004, but Ahmed Khan says soon after his second film, Fool n Final, he decided to take a break from the direction as he did not want his creativity to be a “salve of Friday”. Ahmed is finally back in direction with Baaghi 2. Sajid says he took up the project as he wanted to work with Tiger Shroff and producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
Ahmed said; “I was quite done with direction. I did not want to be a slave of ‘Friday’. I had an ongoing career in choreography and I also produced two films in between. I had ad films to do. Almost every year I was offered three-four films, the offers were good but somehow I did not feel like doing it or was caught up with other work. After over nine years I got offer from Nadiadwala, who is like my elder brother and Tiger was there too, so I said yes”.
Ahmed Khan also talked about the reprised version of Ek Do Teen song by Jacqueline Fernandez, which originally featured Madhuri Dixit. Ahmed said; “It is my personal love for the song and so we got it. Now that we have taken the song people should appreciate it. Today’s audience generation now knows about ‘Ek Do Teen’. I am not saying we have done a great job, even we are doing business as it is a hit song so we have taken it. At the same time see the benefit, we are taking it to another generation, giving it a life.”
“If I would not have been a choreographer or a filmmaker I would have been a martial artist teacher. I am a black bet in Taekwondo, Taichung, I have done MMA. I have gone for tournaments. I have broken all parts of my body. Two-and-half-years back I was kicked in my neck and I got tinch of a vertigo and after that I stopped. I wanted to increase my level but my wife stopped me saying I need to relax now,” he added.
Baaghi 2 is the sequel to 2016 hit Baaghi. Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani starrer Baaghi 2 will release on March 30.
