Sarfarosh (1999) was among those initial films that transformed Aamir Khan’s chocolate boy image. With this film, he emerged as one of those actors who valued substance more than the commercial success. Now, there are reports that the director of Sarfarosh will be back with the sequel of the film. However, Aamir will be replaced by John Abraham in the new film.

Mid-Day has quoted a source saying, “Abraham and Matthan are in advance talks for the film. The sequel will revolve around the Naxal movement and red corridor in India. The first instalment touched upon this topic in passing. There is a possibility that it will take off from there.”

The director of Sarfarosh, John Matthew Matthan, denied finalising any actor for Sarfarosh 2. He, however, said that the scripting process of Sarafrosh 2 is already in process. He said, “I am scripting Sarfarosh 2 now, but it is too early to give out any details. We are in talks with a few actors. I can’t confirm the cast.”

Aamir played ACP Ajai Singh Rathod in the film who is on a mission to bust a gang involved in the smuggling of illegal weapons across the India-Pakistan border. The film also starred Sonali Bendre and Naseeruddin Shah in important roles. It was also a commercial success.
