Sajid Nadiadwala finished 25 years in his producer role. It was in 1955 when his grandfather Abdul Karim Nadiadwala first came to Mumbai from a small village beyond Baroda in Gujarat called Nadiad and started producing films. He said how the banner name “Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment” came.
“My uncle’s banner was Nadiadwala Sons. Most companies were named ‘so and so sons’ so I registered ‘Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt Ltd’ as my grandfather was the reason we were in this line. The logo had the letters N and G and in between, it had a grandfather holding a grandchild’s hand that was meant to be me. Coincidentally, my son today feels that the little child holding the hand is him with his grandfather. I saw success as a producer for the first time in 1995 with back-to-back hits, ‘Jeet’ and ‘Judwaa’, and since then 90% of my films have been hits.” He said
