Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh, who tasted immense success with his suspense thriller Kahaani, was supposed to direct the sequel to the movie, which was to star Vidya Balan. However, sources now claim that Ghosh has been ousted from the project.
Buzz has it that co-producer Jayantilal Gada has replaced Ghosh with Kundan Shah, who is known for his cult classic Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro. It seems that Ghosh had demanded a whopping sum of Rs. 35 crores to helm the sequel, which prompted Gada to take this step. On his part, Shah said that Kahaani 2 won't be a sequel in the strictest sense, but will be a different story with a central female character.
Starring Vidya Balan and other actors, Kahaani was a suspense about an ostensibly pregnant woman, who comes to Kolkata from London to search for her missing husband.
