Filmmaker Karan Johar, who, along with three other directors, has collaborated to make Bombay Talkies, a movie celebrating 100 years of cinema, has now suggested that they make it into a franchise.

We’ve been informed that the director feels that there’s so much more to the movie, that making it once every two years will offer the audience a lot more.

A source close to the filmmaker reveals, “The project deals with four different short stories and the concept has been received well by the audience. Also, each story is very close to reality, which is why people have been able to relate to them. Karan is sure that the idea will do well.”

Ask Karan about this and he says, “Yes, all four of us have enjoyed the Bombay Talkies experience as individuals and as filmmakers. All of us have felt liberated and the fact that we have also become friends in the process calls for a sequel. We want to visit this again soon and I’m sure Anurag (Kashyap), Zoya (Akhtar) and Dibakar (Banerjee) will agree with me.”
