Will Aamir Khan, Salman Khan sign up for Andaz Apna Apna sequel?
Director Rajkumar Santoshi is planning a sequel to the 1994 film Andaz Apna Apna and, according to reports, the filmmaker is trying everything in his power to get the lead actors of the original cult classic, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, to sign up for part two.
“I am working on the script. I have had discussions about it with Aamir and Salman. When I complete the script, I will hand it over to both of them. If everything falls in place, they will be part of the sequel too. But if, in case, they don’t have the time, I will get new actors on board,” said Rajkumar Santoshi.
We may have to wait for the final announcement about the actors, but apparently actresses Karisma Kapur and Raveena Tandon, the original heroines, will play a small part in the film.
“The film is not possible without Karisma and Raveena. I don’t want to reveal the story, but there is a scene in the beginning that features them,” said the filmmaker.
According to Mr Santoshi, the sequel will carry forward the story of the original and the two protagonists Amar and Prem (played by Aamir and Salman respectively) will take on new adventures.
“The story moves ahead (in the sequel). It is about two characters and their new adventures,” he said.
Aamir and Salman have come a long way since Andaz Apna Apna and this will be one casting coup which may take a lot of persuasion, given that Aamir is known for doing one film a year. On the other hand, date issues may be a real hurdle in roping in busy actor Salman Khan.
If all goes well, apart from a laugh riot, Andaz Apna Apna 2 is certain to keep the cash registers ringing.
