The trio of Vidya Balan, Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi will be back in Ishqiya's sequel. Shemaroo and Vishal Bhardwaj have announced the sequel reportedly.
"Ishqiya was a huge hit and was also critically acclaimed. The producers were very happy and were keen to make a sequel. However, the film did not take off for a long time. Everything seems to be on track now and last night the film was announced at a private party at the producer Shemaroo's office," a source told Mumbai Mirror.
The cast of Ishqiya is excited to be a part of the sequel. "Arshad and Vidya were present when the film was announced, while Vishal, his wife Rekha, and Abhishek Chaubey were also present. Abhishek has an idea and the script is currently under finalisation. The film will go on the floors in the middle of this year. The last draft is being written and maybe one or two people might be added. Vidya and Arshad are equally thrilled to do the sequel," added the source.
"Abhishek was being offered to direct a film from several production houses. He too was in talks and there was a strong buzz that he was going to make a film with John Abraham. But it seems nothing did materialise. Abhishek took a long break to decide his next film script and what he wanted to direct. Finally after this break, he has decided to direct his debut movie Ishqiya's sequel," informed the source.
Ketan Maroo, the producer of the film, confirmed the news, "Yes, we have announced the film. However, I will be in a better position to give you details in a few days."
