Ever since actor Sanjay Dutt has returned from jail, there have been many speculations around the films he is doing. The latest movie to be added in his kitty is Khalnayak sequel.
The actor along with filmmaker and producer Subhash Ghai has joined hands to make a sequel of their 1993 hit.
Subhash Ghai confirmed the news to a tabloid and stated, “We’ve made an agreement to produce KhalNayak Returns which will roll by the year end or early next year. I’d met Sanjay when he was out on parole and discussed the idea with him. He made a soundtrack with some voice over in the background which I loved. Impressed with his passion for the film, we decided to take the idea forward,“ says Ghai adding that he wants to make an intelligent sequel like that of The Godfather which today’s viewers can connect with.”
The 1993 movie revolved around the capture of dreaded gangster, Ballu Balaram, by inspector Ram, played by Jackie Shroff. However, he escapes from jail and Ram’s cop girlfriend, Ganga enacted by Madhuri Dixit, goes undercover to reel him in. But then she lets him go and is arrested for aiding a criminal and accused of being in a relationship with him. As she stands trial, Ballu surrenders.
When asked Ghai on the sequel he reveals to the tabloid that the film will kick off with Ballu coming out of the jail after 20 years to find himself in a completely different world. But the circumstances will take him back to the world of crime.
“It’ll be a multi-starrer with many new characters. You never know, Ballu might find another khalnayak, among them,” confirms Ghai.
While the title track of the movie, Nayak Nahi Khalnayak Hoon Main will be retained, the call on whether to include the chartbuster Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai or not will be taken soon.
“The title track will be retained but we are yet to take a call on Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai,” reveals the director, adding further, “We haven’t singed anyone yet. We are completing the script first. There’s lots of excitement and we’ll announce further developments at the right time.”
Now this is exciting, isn’t it?
