Jaya says yes, Big B says no to Sarkar Raj sequel
Veteran actress Jaya Bachchan has liked the Sarkar Raj saga so much that she has urged director Ram Gopal Varma to make another sequel.
Sarkar Raj starring Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek and his wife Aishwarya Rai, got a mixed response, but Jaya loved it.
"Varma was asked this question at a press conference in Bangkok and he said he has not thought about it. But Jaya in a rare reaction has urged him that he must do a part three, as did a few others. I personally feel he should not. Better for people to say 'why not' than 'why did you'," Amitabh told IANS.
Incidentally, she is the most outspoken Bachchan of the family who didn't think Varma's remaking Sholay was a good idea and who was vocal of her opposition to tampering with an invincible classic.
And now Jaya is excited by the idea of a trilogy in the Sarkar series. The latest political thriller ends with the death of Abhishek's character.
The third part would probably show the senior Bachchan taking charge of the family empire again, with his elder son's child manoeuvring the Nagre empire by his grandpa's side. Kay Kay Menon played the elder son in the first part.
Incidentally, the director had thought about another sequel even while Sarkar Raj was in post-production.
