Because only he was mad enough to make his first film on Animal, jo ek mechanical shark thi. Ek kahavat, ek rule hai that for a first-time director, don't work with Animal and kids. Maine dono rule tode hain, jo Spielberg ne tode the."
The clip was shared by a Reddit community, and netizens roasted Sajid Khan brutally. A user wrote, "There is something so universally terrible about him." Another comment read, "Of course, he's a narcissistic psychopath. After Housefull 2 he just went berserk."
