Since 1955, his family has brought out more than 200 films. Suleiman Nadiadwala was his father and Abdul Karim Nadiadwala, his grandfather. He is married to Wardha Khan, a former journalist and they have two sons- Subhan and Sufyan. Career in brief: NGEPL is a third generation film production company. It traces its foundation to a family celebrating over 50 years of cinema, and has given the Indian film industry some of its most notable films. Having successfully produced hits, such as 'Inspector' – its first film, 'Taj Mahal' and 'Chitralekha' (all produced by Sajid Nadiadwala's grandfather, Abdul Karim Nadiadwala), the production banner has produced over 200 films, since its inception in 1955. Sajid Nadiadwala has carried on the legacy of the family with numerous hits under the banner of Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, including ‘Judwaa’ (1997), ‘Jeet’ (1996), ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ (2004), ‘Housefull 2’ (2012), ‘Housefull’ (2010) and ‘Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega’ (2000).  His 2006 released film Jaan-E-Mann was an all time blockbuster and was thoroughly critically appreciated. His 2007 release Heyy Babyy was amongst the year's biggest hits. Continuing with the hit saga his Housefull (2010), Housefull2 (2012) and many more became much loved and successful movies of all times. Bollywood graph: His first successful breakthrough came up with the 1996 action romantic drama, ‘Jeet’, starring Salman Khan, Sunny Deol, Karisma Kapoor and directed by Raj Kanwar. Post ‘Jeet’ most of his movies are starring majorly Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. The ups and down continued in his career graph. The 2006 film titled ‘Jaan-E-Maan’ despite having lots of expectations and critical appreciated, failed to create much of an impact at the box office. However subsequent year in 2007, the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Heyy Babyy’ became a huge hit. In 2009, Sajid came out with an international rom-com titled ‘Kambakkht Ishq’. This movie initially received a lot of media exposure due to the presence of renowned Hollywood actors like Denise Richards, Sylvester Stallone and Brandon Routh. Following this average –rated flick, was a huge success gaining movie Houseull (2010) starring Deepika Padukone, Ritesh Deshmukh, Akshay Kumar, Boman Irani and Lara Dutta. That same year on the 1st of October, 2010, Sajid released ‘Anjaana Anjaani’, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. This movie as well inspite of having high expectations did not create much excitement at the box-office. ‘Housefull 2’ which he released on the 5th of April, 2012 was in turn another successful and a declared blockbuster.  

Sajid Nadiadwala: He who dares to dream…   Taking a 50-year old banner and spinning an all new dream around it, Sajid Nadiadwala is changing the rules of the Bollywood game on his own. His Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, a third generation film production company, has been a force to reckon with in the Hindi film industry for some time and now Sajid is driving the banner into a full-fledged studio with their new productions, by co-producing films with other big banners and presenting much-awaited entertainers.   "To consistently provide exceptional entertainment and to bring together people of all ages, caste and creed, with our promise to entertain" has been Sajid's driving vision for his banner. Despite film production being a family business, the scion has had to work his way up from scratch, handling big multistarrer productions before turning an independent producer himself. Sajid struck gold in the rocky 90s with entertainers like Jeet, Judwaa and Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega.   The last decade has seen Sajid taking Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment from strength to strength, delivering box office blockbusters like Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Heyy Babyy, Housefull and Housefull 2. In this period he has also launched successful directors like Sajid Khan and Shirish Kunder. For one of his productions Kambakkht Ishq, Sajid managed to rope in Hollywood superstars Sylvester Stallone and Denise Richards for cameos.   Now in this all-new phase in Indian cinema, Sajid plans to expand his banner into a full-fledged studio. A cursory glance at his projects over the next 18 months will tell you that his dream is galloping on the right track. With projects like Judwaa 2, Housefull 3, Imtiaz Ali’s next film with Ranbir Kapoor and Kabir Khan’s yet untitled project with Saif, or their co-production with Karan Johar's Dharma Productions in 2 States or the film that the banner is presenting, Imtiaz Ali's Highway, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment is set to soar higher.    What's more, Sajid plans to turn director himself with Kick, starring Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez. The small boy who used to watch the same film a dozen times in the projection room and went on to reestablish a prestigious film banner and spend endless crores on new directors, is going to come a full circle by helming a film himself as director. "The genre of entertainment will remain unchanged; the only difference will be in the style and narration," Sajid says.   "Nadiadwala Grandson has remained rock steady because of its single desire to entertain," Sajid sums up. "The banner has always made films which are universal with dedication and creativity at the highest level. Our new mantra is that no consumer, no market, no opportunity, no genre is beyond reach. Today it maybe television, tomorrow it could be new media. The sky is the limit."        About Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Private Limited   With a vision "to consistently provide exceptional entertainment and to bring together people of all ages, caste and creed, with our promise to entertain", Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt Ltd has been wowing Indian audiences for over half a century.    A third generation film production company, the Nadiadwalas boast of stalwarts like Abdul Karim Nadiadwala, Abdul Gaffar Nadiadwala, Farruk Nadiadwala, Habib Nadiadwala and Suleman Nadiadwala, who have between them produced over 200 films from as early as 1955. The company has successfully produced hits starting from its first film 'Inspector' and moving on to Taj Mahal and Chitralekha.    Sajid Nadiadwala has continued the legacy of the family starting with Jeet in 1996 and going on to produce some of the biggest Bollywood hits in the last couple of decades including Judwaa, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Heyy Babyy and Housefull. Sajid is currently one of the top producers in Hindi cinema and has become synonymous with big films boasting of high production values.    The keen cinematic acumen of Sajid is now readying a slate of upcoming feature films starring some of the biggest names in Bollywood. In the next 18 months with projects like Kick, Judwaa 2, Housefull 3, Imtiaz Ali’s next film with Ranbir Kapoor and Kabir Khan’s yet untitled project with Saif, or their co-production with Karan Johar's Dharma Productions in 2 States or the film that the banner is presenting, Imtiaz Ali's Highway, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment is all set to transform from a successful banner to one of the top movie studios of India.
