|Filmmaker Sajid Khan has learned a lot after the failure of his last film Himmatwala.
Director Sajid Khan's "Himmatwala" remake was a flop and now he blames the film's failure on his arrogance.
"I am a changed man now. I was very arrogant then and I was talking anything to get attention and make statement. Now I am back on track and thank god 'Himmatwala' flopped. In the middle, I lost it completely," Sajid Khan told reporters during the press conference of his next "Humshakals".
"I wanted people to respect me as a filmmaker. 'Heyy Babyy' did well, then 'Housefull' did well, so I wanted people to take me seriously. I am glad 'Himmatwala' didn't work," he added.

Though his "Humshakals" is yet to hit the screens, it is under scrutiny for being a remake of "Comedy Of Errors".
But shooting down the reports, Sajid Khan said his film has "nothing to do with that film".
The star cast - Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukkh, Ram Kapoor, Tamannaah Bhatia, Esha Gupta - was present at the event.

However, Bipasha Basu skipped the event and Sajid said that she is "unwell", but she will "attend other events and interviews".
It is being reported that Bipasha Basu will not join the promotional activities of the film.
When asked about it, Sajid's response was that "it's not true at all. Truth will come out one day. No one can hide it."
"Humshakals" is slated for a June 20 release.
