It’s second coming for a host of Bollywood movies this year, with as many as 7 filmmakers starting work on a ‘part-two’ in 2009. Sequels to hits like Dostana, Race, 13B, Jane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Don and Drona are underway and the making of sequels to the 1994 hits Krantiveer and Hum Aapke Hain Kaun will reportedly begin soon. The Raaz series will go a step further by making a Raaz part-3.
John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan will carry forward their love story in the sequel to Dostana. And even though Priyanka Chopra’s presence in the film is doubtful, director Tarun Mansukhani says, “The entire team is thrilled about making the sequel. I always felt that there is room to carry the story forward.”
Ramesh Taurani of Tips says that the script for the sequel to Race is being written. “Kareena Kapoor has signed up for the film. Most of the actors, except the ones who died in the first part, will be there in the film.”
The supernatural thriller 13 B, which has even drawn the attention of Weinstein Company, will see two sequels. Director Vikram Kumar says, “It is going to be a trilogy — 13 C and 13 D. The script of 13 C is ready and we have presented it to Reliance Big Pictures. The script of 13 D is underway. Both films will probably star Madhavan.”
The sequel to Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na will be made with Imran Khan and Genelia D’Souza. Abbas Tyrewala confirms, “Yes, we are on with film and our lead pair will remain the same.”
The sequel to the Nana Patekar and Dimple Kapadia starrer Krantiveer will be called Krantiveer — The Revolution and will have a fresh cast.
Rumour has it that Shahid Kapoor, has been approached for a role in the sequel to Hum Aapke Hain Kaun.
