Following the box-office success of Ferrari Ki Sawaari, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has confirmed that a sequel is on the cards. However, he says he isn’t likely to hit the tarmac with the project anytime soon.
He says, “We will wait for Ritwik Sahore (the kid who plays Kayo) to grow up a bit, as we want to cast him in the sequel too.”
So what happens to Kayo after he comes back from Lord’s? A surprised Chopra says, “You are the first person to ask me that. Just yesterday, Rajesh Mapuskar (the director) and I were talking about the possibility of exploring Kayo’s life after he comes back from London.”
Chopra, of course, is no stranger to successful sequels, having already produced the popular Munnabhai series. He says, “We would like to build Ferrari Ki Sawaari as a franchise. It has huge potential. It would be interesting to see what happens to the family’s life after the kid becomes a celebrity cricketer, and how their relationship evolves from that point.”
Ask if the sequel too is likely to be a feel-good film, and Chopra adds, “We would like to explore what happens when money and success come in; whether the dynamics of the relationship remains the same or not.”
Until Sunday afternoon, the Sharman Joshi-Boman Irani-starrer had already raked in Rs 23.86 crore. For a film made for Rs 18 crore (budget and promotions), it has already made its money by selling satellite, music and video rights to Eros International for Rs 30 crore.
