Starring an ensemble star cast, which included the likes of Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin and Farhan Akhtar in principal roles, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ (2011) remains one of the most loved films of all actors’ careers, even after so many years of its theatrical release. The audience loved the movie when it made its entry in theatres in 2011. After its theatrical release, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ has been receiving the same amount of love on television ever since.
Hrithik Roshan and Farhan Akhtar have always maintained that ZNMD is very close to their hearts and they would love it if it comes up with a sequel. The latest we hear that director Zoya Akhtar has decided to give some attention to the actors’ desire and plan a sequel to the well-received film. “Zoya feels that the audience would be keen to know what the characters are up to in today’s time. The sequel will retain all the characters and the story will take a 10-year leap,” a well-placed source reveals to a popular entertainment portal.
Zoya Akhtar is currently filming her upcoming directorial ‘Gully Boy’. Starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in key roles, the project went on the shooting floor in January. The director will commence work on the sequel to ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ only after wrapping up ‘Gully Boy’. The source adds, “It is too early to talk about the same. Although the basic premise has been locked, Zoya will start working on the screenplay by end of this year once the final cut of Gully Boys is ready. If all goes as planned, the film would go on floors in the second half of 2019.”
It looks like another blockbuster is in the offing.
