'Baazigar' sequel not without SRK: Ratan Jain
IANS [ Sun, May 19, 2013 ]
- Mumbai, May 19 (IANS) Producer Ratan Jain currently has no plans for "Baazigar" sequel, but says he may do it after couple of years, but not without Shah Rukh Khan.
"Yes, I am contemplating with the idea of the sequel to 'Baazigar', but not right now. I am busy with my other projects. May be three to four years down the line, I will make a sequel to 'Baazigar'," Jain, whose brother Ganesh Jain had produced the crime thriller, told IANS.
"However, I will not make the sequel without Shah Rulh. So let's see how things fall in place. It's too early to comment on anything at this point of time," he added.
"Baazigar", the 1993 blockbuster, was Shah Rukh's first blockbuster. Directed by Abbas-Mustan, the film introduced Shah Rukh and Kajol's pair on the screen as well as introduced Shilpa Shetty in filmdom.
Meanwhile, Jain is set to roll out the sequel to "Dhadkan" with a fresh star cast. The 2000 hit love triangle had Suniel Shetty, Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty.
"The film is in its scripting stage. It will be a fresh film and not a continuation. We won't repeat the same star cast. It will have a new star cast," said Jain.
