Though Lamba says so, he adds that the sequel won’t materialise if he doesn’t get a good script
Director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba says he is working on the sequel of Fukrey, but it has to be more entertaining than the first part. After the success of Fukrey, Excel Entertainment, which produced the film, decided to make a sequel.
“We are working on the script for Fukrey 2. We are working on few ideas for it but nothing is finalised yet. If we don’t get a good idea then we won’t make the sequel. We don’t intend to make the sequel just for the heck of it. We don’t want to cash in on the popularity of the first part,” Lamba said in an interview.
“There is a pressure to make the sequel as it has to be better than the first one.”
Directed by Lamba, Fukrey had Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh, Priya Anand, Richa Chadda and Vishakha Singh. The film, released in June 2013, turned out to be a sleeper hit of the year.
“We did not expect that the film will do well. It feels great when such new ideas and films get acceptance. The film had a repeat value which is encouraging,” Lamba said.
