Abbas Tyrewala: Not making ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ sequel

Filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala has shot down rumours about him making a sequel to his 2008 hit film Jaane Tu…

“Umm…all those vaguely excited by the idea of a sequel to Jaane Tu…, as suggested in the press today – hey, please let me know if one is happening. I’d love to watch it as well. But I sure ain’t making one,” Abbas Tyrewala posted on his Facebook page. “I guess its just a mild attack of cafeteria journalism… whilst practicing ventriloquism (I’ve been quoted giving random answers to questions I was never asked. Actually, I’ve an idea! Maybe Jai and Aditi (film’s characters) could turn psychopathic, a la Natural Born Killers, and start shooting reporters too lazy to actually do things like ‘reporting’,” he added.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, a light-hearted college romance, was Tyrewala’s directorial debut and also the launch pad for Imran Khan. It featured Genelia D’Souza opposite Imran, and their crackling chemistry worked wonders for the movie. Post Jaane Tu… in 2010, Tyrewala directed the John Abraham-starrer Jhoota Hi Sahi. It tanked at the box office.
