IANS  |  Mumbai 

Sajid Khan is known for his one-of-a-kind comedy. He has used one of his famous dialogues from his show "Sajid No.One" in his forthcoming film "Humshakals".

Sajid has included a few of his famous one-liners and dialogues from his TV show that was aired in the 1990s in his forthcoming comic caper that features Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Esha Gupta and Tamannaah.

"'Hum paagal nahi hain, hamara dimaag kharaab hai' is a dialogue that was used by Sajid himself when he was part of the TV industry," said a source.

"The very lines were uttered by him in English in the famous TV series from the early 1990s 'Mai Bhi Detective' and later on in Hindi in the popular TV comedy show 'Sajid No.One'.

"When he was making 'Humshakals', he realised that those lines were very apt to suit the character of Saif and Riteish," the source added.

Produced by Fox Star Studios and Pooja Entertainment, "Humshakals" is set to release June 20.

Anu Malik gifts his ring to commoner

Singer-composer Anu Malik happened to get so touched by the talent of a teenager from Delhi that he gifted the young boy, Rushabh Sharma, his own ring on the talent hunt show "Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega".

In an upcoming episode of the Sony Entertainment Television show, 15-year old Rushabh will be seen mesmerizing the audience by playing the sitar. Moved by his performance, judge Anu will make his way on stage and remove the ring from his finger and gift it to Rushabh as a token of appreciation.

He later reveals that the ring is no ordinary one as it is the same one that his "Entertainment Ke Liye..." co-judge Farah Khan had gifted him when they worked together during "Main Hoon Na".

That made the gift even more special for Rushabh.
