Delhi Belly may have been a success, but filmmaker Kiran Rao says she is not penning down script of a sequel. “I am neither writing nor directing Delhi Belly 2,” Kiran says.
A bold, youth-centric comedy, Delhi Belly was directed by Abhinay Deo. It featured Imran Khan, Vir Das and Kunal Roy Kapoor in lead roles. The film ended with Rao’s actor-husband Aamir Khan’s item boy act in the song, ‘I hate you like I love you’. At the end of the song, the banner of a new project Disco Fighter, to be directed by Rao, flashed on the screen.
Grapevine had it that the movie would be a sequel to Delhi Belly. But Rao has put the speculations to rest. The Dhobi Ghat director feels making a sequel to every film is not necessary.
“I guess if you have a good script as your sequel, then it makes sense. But, I don’t think there is any point in making a sequel just because the first one was a success. It doesn’t make sense at all,” she added.
Delhi Belly grossed over Rs 26 crore in its opening weekend.
Aamir too has denied any such speculation or any plans of making a sequel to his hit adult comedy, Delhi Belly, that was released earlier this year. “The film is nowhere in the scene. We haven’t started planning or strategising anything for the sequel at all. Whatever news is out till now is baseless,” Aamir said.
Apart from featuring Imran Khan, Vir Das and Kunal Roy Kapoor, the film also marked the debut of Poorna Jagannath and was a comeback film for veejay-turned-actor Shenaz Treasurywala.
The film had come under a lot of criticism for using obscene language and a song in the film titled, Bhaag DK Bose... Aandhi Aayi Hai, became a national sensation but was also embroiled in huge controversy.
Now, Aamir says he is planning to present a sanitised version of the movie for the small screen audience.
