Andaz Apna Apna sequel to star Salman Khan and Aamir Khan along with three new members, confirms writer Dilip Shukla…
The 1994 classic comedy, Andaz Apna Apna starred Salman Khan and Aamir Khan as Amar and Prem respectively in the lead roles. Ever since the news of the film’s sequel went on floor, speculations about the new cast were on a high!
Amidst the reports of Varun Dhawan and Ranveer Singh being cast in the sequel, the writer of the original film, Dilip Shukla, said that the sequel cannot be complete without Salman and Aamir Khan in the film.
In an interview with Deccan Chronicle, the writer confirmed that Preeti Sinha, daughter of producer Vinay Sinha has asked him to start writing the film. “I am writing the sequel. It is not easy to pen a sequel. I have to bring something more attractive in comparison to the earlier one,” he said.
Talking about the new cast, he said, “The sequel cannot be complete without Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. They will be there along with three other new cast members.”
Dilip Shukla is known to have written cult films like Damini, Elaan, Anth, Andaaz Apna Apna and a few modern classics like Veere di Wedding, Jai Ho and more. In addition, he has contributed to all three Dabangg films. His latest project is Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 3, which was a blockbuster hit. The writer has also recently worked on Jimmy Shergil and Mahie Gill-starrer Family of Thakurganj, releasing on July 19.
Earlier this year, a source close to the project told an entertainment website, "The producers Vinay and Priti Sinha are planning to do Andaz Apna Apna - it won’t be a sequel or remake. Nor will Raj Kumar Santoshi direct it. While they have not decided yet what exactly it will be, they are sure it won’t be a remake or sequel but something as exciting. Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Andaz Apna Apna, starring Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor, was a cult movie and one cannot mess with the original. One should not touch such a great film and that too 25 years later and destroy it by a remake or sequel. The director is yet to be finalised."
