Sajid Khan


Sajid Kamran Khan (born 23 November 1970) is an Indian film director, television presenter, comedian, and actor who works in the Hindi film industry. He is best known for the Housefull film series, Heyy Babyy (2007) and Humshakals (2014). Khan also served as a judge on the Indian reality television show Nach Baliye. He is the brother of choreographer Farah Khan.


Sajid Khan was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, the son of former actor Kamran Khan and his wife Menaka Khan (née Irani). He has one sister, Farah Khan, who is a choreographer, director, producer, and actor. Farah is married to Shirish Kunder, also a producer, editor, and director of films.


 Khan has other connections to the film industry: former actresses Honey Irani and Daisy Irani are his mother's sisters and filmmakers Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar are his maternal cousins.


Khan completed his primary education at Maneckji Cooper School in Mumbai and then graduated from Mithibai College. At age 16, while still a college student, he started DJing at various parties and social events.


Khan began his career as a host of the TV show Main Bhi Detective in 1995.

He then hosted a music countdown show Ikke Pe Ikka in 1996. The show entered the Limca Book of Records as the longest-running countdown show to be aired on Indian television with the same host.


In Kehne Mein Kya Harz Hai he played triple roles; the show made 200 episodes which were aired from 1997 to 2001.


He also did a stand-up comedy show Sajid No. 1 in the late 1990s. His next show was Super Sale in 2005. In 2008, he hosted a talk show, Sajid's Superstars, and also judged India's Got Talent season 2.


Along with Terrence Lewis and Shilpa Shetty, Khan was a judge on Nach Baliye Season 5 (2012–2013) and Season 6(2013-2014).


Khan started his directorial career with the movie Darna Zaroori Hai (2006), which had six short stories, in which he directed one story – the story about a man going to watch a movie passing through a graveyard (starring Manoj Pahwa and Sarita Joshi) called The Graveyard. He then directed Heyy Babyy (2007), his first full-length effort. This was followed by Housefull (2010) and Housefull 2 (2012); all three were successful. 


But after these three hits, he directed two films that were box office failures. The first was Himmatwala (2013), a critical and commercial failure, one of the worst Bollywood movies, and a remake of the 1983 movie Himmatwala. His next directorial venture was Humshakals (2014), which is generally ranked amongst the worst Indian films of all time by critics. All the five movies he directed alone started with H.


Khan acted in the movie Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate (1998). He also made a brief appearance in Main Hoon Na (2004), Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004), and Happy New Year (2014).

His last project (as a screenwriter) was Housefull 4 (2019), and he has since taken a break from filmmaking being vexed by sexual harassment accusations. His comeback project is as a director of a yet-to-be-titled film.


In 2022, he participated in Colors TV's reality show Bigg Boss 16. He walked out of the show on day 106 due to professional commitments.


While filming Housefull 2 in 2011, Khan began a romantic relationship with actress Jacqueline Fernandez. The relationship attracted media coverage in India and there was speculation of an impending wedding. However, the relationship ended in May 2013.
