Sequels have been rage in Hollywood, Terminator, Die Hard, and Jurassic Park till Matrix, X-Men, SAW and Harry Porter. Bolly-wood is following Holly-wood not just in name, but also the sequel tradition. After success of Golmaal & Munnabhai franchise, makers are busy ridding on the success of their original releases. After success of Bheja Fry, Bheja Fry 2 will be hit the screens this Friday followed by Inder Kumar’s Double Dhamaal (sequel to Dhamaal).

Its not just these two movies, but there is whole list of sequels that is expected to hit the screens this year; Murder 2, Don 2, Ghayal Returns, Dostana 2, etc. By the way there are also talks of Andaz Apna Apna 2, which will be animation movie with original artist’s sound from Andaz Apna Apna.

Apart from this year releases there are many other sequels that are currently in production and post production phase; like Dhoom 3, Krissh 2, Race 2, Raaz 3, etc. Salman Khan, the reigning Yuvraaj of Bollywood, also has a long list of sequels, some of which are already in the production phase. Wanted 2, Partner 2, Dabangg 2 and after the super success of Ready, possibility of Ready 2 cannot be ignored.

After string of box office hits, Salman is too busy to complete his earlier commitments like Bodygaurd, Ek Tha Tiger, Sher Khan before jumping into Dabangg & Wanted sequels. Still the possibility of sequels to his earlier hits cannot be ignored. The biggest challenge for the markers of the sequel though is to surpass the original success. Each of Salman’s release in past few years has received humongous response. So its sequel will have huge expectations than his previous release. To meet the expectation is pretty uphill task.

For the opening day, Salman’s stardom will help to bring in his millions of fans but to create a box office history they need to be READY with much bigger DA BANGG!
