Nadiadwala started his career as a production assistant in his uncle's production house before establishing his own production company called "Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt Ltd". In 1992 he produced his first film Zulm Ki Hukumat starring Dharmendra and Govinda. In 1993 he produced Waqt Hamara Hai which marked the first pairing of action stars Akshay Kumar and Sunil Shetty. The production company produced several hit films including Jeet (1996), Judwaa (1997), Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega (2000) and Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004).
Despite being heavily hyped, his 2006 film Jaan-E-Mann failed to do well at the box office. His next release, the 2007 film Heyy Babyy, was one of the year's biggest hit. His 2009 production Kambakkht Ishq included the casting of American actors such as Sylvester Stallone, Denise Richards and Brandon Routh. His first film of 2010, Housefull starred Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta and Boman Irani. On 30 September 2010, he announced a sequel to Housefull which would again star Akshay Kumar and be directed by Sajid Khan. His film Anjaana Anjaani starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra released on 1 October 2010. His film Housefull 2 was released on 5 April 2012. On 23 May 2014, his first movie starring two debutantes in lead roles Heropanti released. The movie stars Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon and has the second highest opening for a movie starring debutantes.
Nadiadwala married actress Divya Bharti on 10 May 1992. After 10 months of their marriage Divya died on 5 April 1993, after she slipped and fell from their fifth storey window at their Tulsi residency at age 19. After Divya's death, he met his second wife Warda Khan, a journalist. Khan eventually proposed to Nadiadwala and on 18 November 2000, the two were married. The couple later had two sons.
