Andaz Apna Apna (1994), directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, is arguably one of the most successful comedy films in Bollywood. And Santoshi, who is writing a new story for the sequel to this Aamir Khan-Salman Khan starrer, is trying his best to rope in the two actors for it.
Karisma Kapoor was paired up opposite Salman Khan in Andaz Apna Apna. Her comic timing was perfect in the movie.
confirmation is yet to come, the director has revealed that the original film’s leading ladies, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor, will be part of the new project. “The film is not possible without Karisma and Raveena. I don’t want to reveal the story, but there is a scene in the beginning that features them, Santoshi says. However, the story moves ahead (in the sequel). It is about two characters (Amar Manohar and Prem Bhopali, played by Aamir and Salman respectively) and their new adventures.”
Santoshi adds that he is in talks with Aamir and Salman about the sequel. “I am working on the script. I have had discussions about it with Aamir and Salman. When I complete the script, I will hand it over to both of them. If everything falls in place, they will be part of the sequel too. But if, in case, they don’t have the time, I will get new actors on board,” he says.
