Saif and I compliment each other’s strengths and weaknesses, says Dinesh Vijan!
So, finally with the success of Cocktail, Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan’s partnership has been declared a hit. Earlier they both with their banner Illuminati Films have produced two hits and one miss. Despite having different tastes in movies, they turn out to be compatible business partners. Saif’s interest lies in action while Dinesh has a fetish for romantic films.
“We like all kinds of films. I like love stories a lot. Saif likes action and horror. So, between the two of us, we would like to make all kinds of films. We complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses,” said Vijan.
Finalizing a project solely depends upon the script. The banner’s latest release is the Saif-Deepika Padukone-Diana Penty-starrer Cocktail. “We look at the story and if we connect with it, we take it up no matter what genre it is. The idea is to connect with the story and to bag the director who can make it in the best possible manner,” he said.
Their first production Love Aaj Kal, about confused youngsters and their complicated relationship fundas, wooed the box office and turned into a hit. Spy thriller Agent Vinod, which didn’t do well, followed. They have struck big again with Cocktail, a youth-centric urban drama.
Cocktail has grossed Rs.36 crore in the opening weekend. Cheers to their union!
