Director Sujoy Ghosh confirms the presence of Bachchan in the Kahaani sequel
Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh, who has worked with Amitabh Bachchan in Aladin, says he will definitely work with the megastar in Kahaani 2, a sequel to his successful 2012 thriller Kahaani.
Ghosh confimed, “Yes, I can assure you that Amitabh Bachchan will be a part of Kahaani 2 in some way or the other. His blessings matter a lot to me. I can’t see myself making any films without him.”
Big B had lent his voice for the song Ekla chalo re in Kahaani.
The director says he will roll the camera as soon as the script is locked. He said, “In a month’s time… I am still scripting the film so I can’t say exactly when I will start shooting. The story will be a continuation from where we have left Kahaani.”
He assures that this time Vidya Balan, who played the protagonist in Kahaani to the hilt, will be seen in an action avatar. “Yes, I am planning to make her do some action sequence in Kahaani 2 but let’s see how things shape up. It’s going to be challenging for me to prove myself again, but I am not thinking about that at all. I am just hoping for the best,” said Ghosh.
Ghosh made Kahaani at a shoestring budget of Rs 8 crore and thanks to the overwhelming response, it changed the director and the producer’s fortune by grossing Rs 80 crore at the box office.
If Balan was lauded for her stupendous performance in Kahaani, she was aptly supported by the performances of Parambrata Chatterjee and Nawazuddin Siddique.
