The war between Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan just hot hotter. Here's the inside story

This is straight out of a Bollywood pot boiler adherering to the old adage that ‘Dushman ka dushman dost hota hai' (enemy’s enemy is a friend). And ofcourse, there is no better way of getting back at your enemy than favouring his ex-girlfriend.

The cold war between Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid khan just got icy cool with Khan’s ex Jaquiline Fernandes being cast in the much controversial ‘Kick’ opposite Salman Khan. While Jacky may be basking in the glory of this big-budget film, her ex-beau Sajid is not smiling. The insiders claim that there is no merit involved in casting Jacky when names of Deepika Padukone were in the fray. Sources say that this casting coup was directed towards his erstwhile friend Sajid Khan and Shirish Kunder. 'Kick' which is a remake of a South Indian film was announced with much fanfare last year with Shirish as the director. That was before Joker bombed. With the film, Shirish’s fortune also dipped with Nadiadwala giving him the boot. Then 'Himmatwala' bombed and Nadiaidwala kicked Sajid out of the 'Housefull' franchise. Even his girlfriend decided to desert him siting his overpossesiveness as the reason. That may be true. Sources claim that his fathering Jacky resulted in her losing out plump roles in films like 'Jism 2' and 'Krrishh 3'.

Now, Nadiadwala has decided to direct ‘Kick’ and Farah Khan has taken to twitter to vent her ire. Few days ago, she wrote 'Sometimes all u hav 2 do is wait 4 Karma 2 catch up with certain peop2le… coz Karma is a bitch…• sooner or later that bitch coming 4 YOU!' Be scared, be very scared Sajid Nadiadwala.
