'I've meet Ranbir Kapoor. And we've discussed some possibilities on what we can do. But 'Sarkar 3' is not one of them. I don't want to make any more 'Sarkar' films. Not now, not in the future,' Varma told IANS.
The director made the first 'Sarkar' movie in 2005 with Abhishek and Amitabh and repeated the father-son duo in its sequel 'Sarkar Raj'. Released in 2008, part two of the thriller also starred Aishwarya Rai. But the director says there will be no part three.
'Can I please make one thing clear? There's no 'Sarkar 3'. The series ended with 'Sarkar Raj'. There can be no film in the 'Sarkar' series without the Bachchans. It is unthinkable,' said the director.
Varma reportedly wants to return to the intensely romantic language of 'Rangeela' (1995) with Ranbir after he finishes with his film on media and society 'Rann' and 'Rakta Charitra', a bio-pic on Paritala Ravi.
Meanwhile the sequel to 'Phoonk' is being directed for Varma by his assistant Milind Gadagkar.
'I've been busy with 'Rann' and 'Rakta Charitra'. So Milind did 'Phoonk 2'. He was closely involved with the first part of 'Phoonk',' said Varma.ALSO READ: Review: If you thought 'Kabir Singh' was controversial, make way for 'Animal' & just how polarising it will be
