interviews, Clint mentioned that he was planning to start a production
house. Thats when Clints friend told him ” Mal Paso ” , which means a bad step in Spanish.Cint thought a lot about it and one day he woke up and decided to be a producer.Later, he launced Mal Paso Production. When saif read this,he was quite inspired by it. He was shooting outdoors and the next thing u know, in the middle of the night he called up Dinesh Vijan and told him about the whole idea of launching a production house. Saif had worked with Dinesh during his movie Being Cyrus and thats when they had become quite good friends.”
