Mumbai, Nov. 21 -- This year has been quite fruitful for film-maker Sajid Nadiadwala's production house - Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment (NGE) - with films like Highway, 2 States, Heropanti and Kick faring well at the box office.
And as the company enters its 60th year today (November 21), Sajid, an emotional man. "We have entered the 60th year of operations, but it feels that we have just begun. It's a special and emotional moment for all of us. I'm thankful to a lot of people, who have been part of this wonderful journey. I feel truly blessed," says Sajid.
There are many production companies that have been dominating the business since the inception of Hindi cinema. While Bombay Talkies was one of the earliest production houses, many others like RK Films, Navketan Films, Sippy Films, Rajshri Productions and the Nadiadwalas joined the business in the'50s. "These companies made some remarkable films, and Hindi cinema wouldn't have been the same without their contributions," says Sajid.
While many of these yesteryear companies don't make films anymore, Rajshri Productions and NGE are active even today.
Some highly anticipated Bollywood films, which are being produced by NGE, and will hit the theatres in the coming months include Phantom, Tamasha and Housefull 3.
