Leading comic sequels to rock Bollywood
Movie freaks with a palate for relishing the time tested ingredients of B town flicks, are in for a fresh dose of rollicking entertainment and laughter with a series of comic sequels awaiting box office introduction. Quite a few comic strips planned as follow up to erstwhile entertainers to rock Bollywood are waiting in the wings for their official release.
1. Dostana 2
Planned out as a sequel to Karan Johar’s’ Dostana’, Dostana 2 is supposed to feature certain elements of improvisation. In place of Priyanka as the leading actress, the sequel revolves around Katrina Kaif. With the due completion of Priyanka’s tale of love in the initial version, a new face involving fresh germs of love interest was normally expected. Apart from John and Abhishek, Ritesh Deshmukh and Shreyas Talpade are supposed to strike as another gay couple. Despite the odd rumors of displeasure about the script being penned down by Tarun Mansukhani, it remains to be seen how it shapes out finally with the audience at large.
2. Munnabhai Chale Amerika
The third sequel to toe the earlier flicks revolving around the noted Munnabhai series, was supposed to have made it to the box office by now, had it not been for certain points of bother. Besides script centric dissatisfaction, guided by the idea of complete restructuring so far as its looks and feel are concerned, Rajkumar Hirani is said to have roped in Sharman Joshi along with the perfection prone Aamir Khan instead of the former duo of Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi. Perhaps the script is being revamped keeping in mind the delicate subtleties of the newly inducted Aamir Khan
3. Happy Singh
Inspired by Anees Bazmi directed - the immensely appealing flick of’ Singh is King’; Vipul Shah is all set to direct its sequel centering on the equally appealing duo of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif. In league with the writer Suresh Nair, Vipul Shah seems happy with the script put together. Similar is the excitement of Akshay in having to enact the role of the blundering Sardarji
4. Disco Fighter
Inspired by the cameo role of Aamir Khan in the latter’s ‘Delhi- Belly’; wife Kiran Rao looks well motivated to give it a fully fledged dimension in the forthcoming comic strip ‘Disco Fighter’- planned as a sequence to Imran Khan starrer Delhi Belly. The planned sequel will also include Imran, Kunal Roy and Vir Das besides Aamir.
5. Housefull 2
In site, of his dislike for sequels, the director- producer Sajid Nadiadwala doesn’t mind offering a thoroughly revamped version of his franchise brand Houseful. Featuring a scintillating bevy of actors and actresses, Houseful 2 is likely to project Asin, Jarine, Jackie and Shazahn in hotly glamorous garbs.
With lots of excitement and anticipation awaiting the box office in the forthcoming year, it will be great watching which outdoes the other in terms of its comedy, content and appeal.
