Sajid Khan Reveals His Father Became An Alcoholic As He Lost All His Money Due To Sanjeev Kumar

Sajid Khan is an eminent personality in the Indian entertainment fraternity known for his jovial nature and hatke filmmaking skills. He is also the brother of entertainment queen, Farah Khan and the son of ace filmmaker, Kamran Khan. For the uninitiated, Kamran Khan was a filmmaker, actor, and director who has made popular movies like Watan Se Door, Ilzam, and Beqasoor, among many others. However, the glorious and celebrated filmmaker had a severe downfall after his finances suffered and he succumbed to alcohol.

Sajid Khan revealed the main reason for his father’s downfall

In a recent conversation with Timeout With Ankit , Sajid Khan revealed that he and his sister, Farah Khan’s life changed after their father lost all his money. Talking about the events that led to his father’s downfall, Sajid revealed that after his birth, his father decided to make an A-grade film and cast Sanjeev Kumar in it, but the latter left the film midway. This caused a financial loss for Kamran Khan, who then succumbed to alcohol and soon became an addict. In Sajid’s words:

“My father used to make B-grade timepass mazedaar films with Dara Singh. When Farah was born, my father was going through a very good time. When I was born, he gave his first flop! Hence, I say, ‘I started my life with a flop’. He must have thought that since he now has a son, he needs to make bigger films. He decided to make an A-grade big film with Sanjeev Kumar. That film never got made. Aadhi picture karke Sanjeev Kumar bhaag gaya. My father lost all his money. Then my father became an alcoholic and my parents got divorced.”
