Fans of the cult comedy film, Andaz Apna Apna, can never have enough of the film that brought Salman Khan and Aamir Khan together for a laugh riot. So, each bit of information about the sequel to the 1994 film is lapped up with a lot of excitement.

A still from Andaz Apna Apna starring Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor.

In an interview to DNA, director Rajkumar Santoshi confirmed that a sequel is very much in the pipeline. However, he also said something that is likely to break the hearts of all Andaz Apna Apna fans - he said Aamir and Salman will not reprise their roles. Explaining his decision, the filmmaker said, “For humour, you need innocence. That time, these actors had the innocence. Now, it will look forced. It looks cute if a 20 year old is chasing a girl. A 45-50 year old man chasing young girls looks vulgar.”

Asked if he has finalised actors for the sequel, Santoshi said, “There is Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan... They are all promising actors and they have the knack for comedy. I will pick up good talent for the film.”

The original film, featuring Salman, Aamir, Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Shakti Kapoor and Mehmood, proved to be a box office dud. It was only later that it became popular with the audience and has now become a cult movie among Hindi film lovers.
