If the trade buzz is to be believed, Sangeeth Sivan is working on Kya Fool Hai Hum, the sequel of Kya Kool Hai Hum. But Ekta Kapoor won't be a part of it. What's more, Sivan won't be directing it either. He's handed the baton over to Ajay Chandok.
Quiz him on the subject and Sivan insists that Kya Fool Hai Hum is not Kya Kool Hai Hum 2.
"My partner in the production, Sanjay Ahluwalia, had this title with him and we both thought it was quite apt," he says.
While Kya Fool.. is a comedy, Sivan asserts that it's a completely different story. The reason he didn't cast Tusshar Kapoor or Riteish Deshmukh, he points out, is because he didn't want to mislead the audience.
"That's why I opted for Govinda, Javed Jaffrey and Rajpal Yadav. There's one more actor who is yet to be signed," he informs.
So, what's happening on the sequel Ekta Kapoor and he had planned? "I don't know about the sequel but I'll be working with Ekta very soon. Contrary to the rumours, there's been no fall-out," he clarifies.
"But right now, I'm busy with my home production Click."
Sivan's Ek toplining Nana Patekar and Bobby Deol, is also complete.
"We are planning to release it during the summer vacation in April," says Sivan.
