One sequel that has been waited patiently is that of Rajkumar Santoshi’s 1994 cult classic – ‘Andaz Apna Apna’. And recently the director confirmed that the sequel to this classic comedy is in offing, however it wouldn’t star Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, who played the central characters – Amar and Prem – in the film.
Talking about his plans for about taking this comedy franchise forward, Santoshi revealed to a daily, “I want to make a worthy successor. What other filmmakers do is en-cash on a successful film’s title, whether there is a story or not. I can’t cheat people with the title. The day I’m satisfied with the subject being the worthy successor, I will get on the floor with the movie.”
Regarding the casting, the director said, “It’s very difficult (to cast Salman and Aamir). For humour, you need innocence. That time, these actors had the innocence. Now, it will look forced. It looks cute if a 20-year-old is chasing a girl. A 45-50-year-old man chasing young girls looks vulgar.”
He further added that he might look at casting younger actors, “There is Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan… They are all promising actors and they have the knack for comedy. I will pick up good talent for the film.”
We can’t imagine ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ sequel without these two Khans, can you?
