Andaz Apna Apna, starring Salman and Aamir Khan in lead roles, is one of the most popular comedies of Bollywood. Two years back, speculations were rife about its sequel when director Rajkumar Santoshi had said that a reboot of the film is in the pipeline. Fans were very excited about it and names of Ranveer Singh, Varun Dhawan and Ranbir Kapoor were floating around as the leads.
Now Dilip Shukla, writer of Andaz Apna Apna and other films such as the Dabangg franchise, Jai Ho, Mohra, Ghayal and Damini has confirmed to Asian Age that Aamir and Salman will be returning for the sequel of the 1994 movie.
Dilip Shukla also said that the film will have three new cast members. “Preeti Sinha, daughter of producer Vinay Sinha, has asked me to start writing the film. It is very difficult to pen a sequel as I have to bring something more attractive compared to the original one”, Shukla told Asian Age.
“The sequel cannot be complete without Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. They will be there along with three other new cast members”, he added.
Andaz Apna Apna, also starring Raveena Tandon, Karisma Kapoor, Shakti Kapoor and Paresh Rawal, might not have been a blockbuster hit, but it achieved a cult status with years to come.
