'Golmaal 2' - a scam sequel?

Jul 4, 2007 Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, July 4 (IANS) Everyone loves a sequel these days. And you would think director Rohit Shetty is doing the same with "Golmaal 2".

But wait, his film won't be a sequel to the first, "Golmaal - Fun Unlimited".

Arshad Warsi, who was a driving force in "Golmaal", told IANS: "The second 'Golmaal' has nothing to do with the first. There's a new script with new characters in the second film.

"I've a totally different role from the first film. And I'm not fully sure right now whether I want to do it."

So why's it called 'Golmaal 2'?

"That's what I was asking Rohit. There's no need to give the same title to two different films. Why unnecessarily make audiences feel they're returning for the same experience when they're not in any way related?"

Of course, Arshad is part of the third "Munnabhai" film. But he isn't very sure of being in the second "Golmaal" film.

"Sequels work because of the characters, not the storyline. Superman and James Bond work because of the superheroes. 'Munnabhai' works because of Munnabhai and Circuit. I'll have to make the producers of 'Golmaal' understand that."
