Farhad Samji is one of the writers credited for Ajay Devgan`s iconic dialogue in Singham (2011), `Atta maaji satakli`. A writer turned director, most of his work comes hand in hand with Sajid Samji, his older brother. In fact the duo started off their career as lyricists. They got their big break when Salman Khan heard their songs and recommended Farhad and his brother to David Dhawan, who in turn got them aboard for Hum Kisise Kum Nahin (2002). Soon they moved on to writing dialogues and screenplays, starting with Ram Gopal Varma`s Shiva (2006), and eventually got into directing with their debut film Entertainment (2014).

Farhad`s first taste of fame came with the Munnabhai MBBS song M Bole Toh (2004). His notable work as a director includes Housefull 3 (2016) and Simmba (2018). Farhad has also directed several web series, including Baby Come Naa (2018) for Ektaa Kapoor`s platform ALT Balaji. His 2019 project as a director includes Housefull 4. His 2020 releases include Baaghi 3 Laxmii and Coolie No 1.
