We would rather be careful: Raju Hirani on Aamir Khan-starrer PK sequel

Though Aamir Khan-starrer PK (2014) was much acclaimed by the audience, the movie triggered so many controversies that director Rajkumar Hirani recently said that he would be rather careful before planning for a sequel to the movie.
According to a report, Hirani said, “After the amount of bashing we got for it, we would rather be careful with PK. Munnabhai (2003), of course, will have a sequel. We want to make one for 3 Idiots (2009). Let PK be for a while, unless we can use the alien to do something else.”
The movie did a huge collection of almost Rs 800 crores but at the same time was bashed by majorly for its ironical take on god-men and superstition. Several Hindu organisations vandalised theatres screening the film, ripped posters featuring naked Aamir Khan and also demanded a ban on it.
However, the director has some great plans for the second outing of 3 Idiots. Saying that he would “love to work with Aamir”, he added, “Aamir is always a complete joy to work with. He is one of those rare persons, who gets completely involved in the film. So, I would love to work with him. In fact, in between, we have a great idea for 3 Idiots 2. It’s still very sketchy, but out of excitement, Abhijat (Joshi) and I bounced the idea to Aamir, and he is also very keen to do it someday. If that happens, then we would love to work together.”
The film turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters of all time, and also featured Sharman Joshi, R Madhavan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Boman Irani. While Sharman has already expressed his eagerness on the sequel, Madhavan, too, had earlier said he would be a part of the cast.
