Ritesh Sidhwani opens up on the sequel to ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’
Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ was the movie that celebrated friendship like never before. It got a positive response from the audiences as well as critics. It was a superhit movie in 2011. The movie had an ensemble cast including Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Abhay Deol, and Kalki Koechlin. Ritesh Sidhwani who has earlier produced the movie has spoken about the sequel of ‘ZNMD’.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror when the producer was asked about the sequel, he said that Hrithik and he have been talking to Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti (writer of ‘ZNMD’) about the sequel. “As everyone wants to know what happens to the friends (played by Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol) after that life-changing trip. But, I can’t Force my team to write it, the germ of an idea has to come organically. We’d, however, love to work with Hrithik again and are looking at scripts to take to him. We may soon have one,” said the producer.
Earlier while promoting ‘Gully Boy’, Zoya revealed that she is dying to work with Hrithik again. In an interview with News 18, the filmmaker said, “I am really keen to work with him again so planning to make a sequel to ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. However, I will start working on this project only when I get a good script. Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar, Kalki Koechlin and Hrithik Roshan, all four guys are very special to me. I really share a good bonding with them so I can’t even think of making a sequel just for the sake of money.”
We want Ritesh and Farhan’s Excel Entertainment to come together with Zoya to create yet another happening movie like ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. What do you say?
