It seems like the sequel fever has hit Bollywood. Or it may well be that Bollywood lacks original talent and rehashing a winning formula is a safe bet. Whatever be the reason, repeats and rehashes are well on their way.
Here’s a list of films that will go the sequel-way:
No Entry: The 2005 hit with loads of nonsense packed in from the Boney Kapoor camp is well on its way for a remake. The original cast remains: Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan and Fardeen Khan. Currently, the script is being written.
Krissh: The film, in any way, was a continuation of Hrithik Roshan starrer Koi Mil Gaya. Looks like papa Rakesh Roshan is working on Krissh 3 with the original cast of Hrithik and Priyanka Chopra in mind.
Don: The Chase Begins: A remake of the original Amitabh Bachchan starrer went on to be a hit with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. Looks like director Farhan Akhtar has already shot parts of the sequel with the original cast of SRK and Priyanka Chopra. The new film will be called Don 3: The Chase Continues and will see Kunal Kapoor as a new entrant.
Golmaal 3: The original was an Amol Palekar – Utpal Dutt and a cult classic. Director Rohit Shetty took the same and misplaced identity theme and churned around his own tale. Golmaal 3 we saw the third in this series last year. Expect the fourth this year. The original cast of the first part returns this time.
Dabangg: The Salman Khan smash hit will return to the screens again with the core team of Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Sonu Sood reappearing.
Race: The 2008 will be seen again with the sequel being called Race 2. From the original Anil Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan will remain. But instead of Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar we will see John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha.
Housefull: The multi starrer Sajid Khan film that hit the jackpot last year is all set to make a re-entry and will in all possibility go on the floors in June. Sajjid is currently scripting the tale. Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh and John Abraham will star in the sequel.
Once Upon a Time in Mumbai: Another hit last year and based on the life of don Haji Mastan will return again but this time telling the tale of Dawood Ibrahim. It’ll be called Once Upon a Time in Dubai. Akshay Kumar may star in it.
Yamla Pagla Deewana: Old boy Dharmendra is all set to rock again alongwith his sons as the comic caper is all set to re-made again.
Dostana: This ‘gay love story’ will see a re-make also. But this around Priyanka will be replaced with Katrina Kaif while Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham stay.
