Even as Bollywood goes crazy over Judwaa 2, a remake of Salman Khan’s hit from the 90s (Judwaa), another film from the decade got a sequel. Director Deepak Shivdasani said he has begun working on the second installment of the 1997 Suniel Shetty starrer Bhai.
Directed by Deepak, the action film featured Pooja Batra, Sonali Bendre and Ashish Vidyarthi in lead roles. Bhai turned out to be a surprise hit of the year. “I am working on Bhai 2 and it is different from Bhai. I am too excited about it. The script is not starting where we ended Bhai. The subject excited me, it has potential to take it ahead. The calling is there for the second part,” Deepak said.
“There are two young characters in Bhai 2... It is about two friends. It is about true essence of friendship. It is something which people have not seen in long time,” he added.
Deepak said he wants to start the film as soon as possible and is focusing on finishing the script. Talking about the cast, Deepak said, “I have a role for Suniel in the film but I am yet to discuss it with him as I am still working on the story. We need young actors for Bhai 2. In today’s time it is difficult to get two heroes for a film. I have few actors in mind for the film but I can’t take names.”
He is awaiting the release of Julie 2 featuring actress Raai Laxmi in the lead. The film distributed by Pahlaj Nilahani is slated to release on October 6.
