The second installment to the classic cult comedy film is back on track
Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro sequel has been in the talks for a long time now. The makers of the superhit cult comedy film have been in talks for the sequel since long but due to legal issues couldn’t take it forward. But finally all seems to be back on track. Grapevine has it that Satish Kaushik and Kundan Shah have finally confirmed to team up for the sequel. So have the legal issues been taken care of? We ask…
Our khabroos inform that Satish has given the NOC to producer Neeraj Vora to make the film. But there is something more that Neeraj needs to have. He needs to get a permission from the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC). Talking to a leading daily a source informs, “Satish Kaushik will be acting in this film. In the original film, he played Ashok Namboodiripad and he also wrote the dialogues.”
Satish also confirmed the news to the leading daily. He said, “The sequel to Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is going to be very different journey. Times were very different back in the ’80s. Sometimes, for great work you need the hunger and dedication. Now we are all settled. So it is going to be a big challenge, not just for the actors but for the writers, director and everyone else associated with the project. But we have immense faith in Kundan Shah. It’s also a moment of great nostalgia for me. Neeraj has asked me to help with the script but I haven’t been asked to be a part of dialogue writing process. But I am completely into the project.”
Wethinks it will be an uphill task for the team to recreate the same magic of the cult 1980 film. We just hope that they are able to keep the original charm and not dilute that in any manner. What do you think BollywoodLifers?
