While speaking to a portal, ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ screenplay writer: Dilip Shukla revealed some interesting details about its upcoming sequel. A few months back news came that Andaz Apna Apna sequel that had Aamir Khan and Salman Khan in the original version, will have Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan instead of these two Khans.
Revealing some details, a trade source told to Pinkvilla, “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.”
Now, the screenplay writer of Andaz Apna Apna, Dilip Shukla, who is also penning the sequel gave an interesting update on the same. He told Deccan Chronicle, “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.”
On being asked if the sequel will have Aamir and Salman reprising their roles, Dilip replied, “The sequel cannot be complete without Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. They will be there along with three other new cast members.”
Earlier too, Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying, “AAA reloaded a big film and the makers are treading cautiously as they want to finalise everything before making an announcement. Ranveer and Varun, have been approached for their comic flair to play Amar and Prem – who again will be happy-go-lucky characters but not the same ones we saw in the 1994 movie. Both are good friends off screen and will be able to carry off their roles with ease. This will be set in 2019 and promises to be another laugh riot yet with underlying emotions. while the iconic character of Crime Master Gogo (played by Shakti Kapoor earlier) will also make a comeback with a contemporary actor and his character will be more stylised and modern.”
