Zoya Akhtar’s coming-of-age film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, about three friends who embark on a road trip before the wedding of one, was probably one of the most loved films in recent times.
And now fans of the film can rejoice as reports have emerged that a sequel to the film is in the works.
A source close Zoya said, “Zoya feels that the audience would be keen to know what the characters are up to in today’s time. The sequel will retain all the characters and the story will take a 10-year leap.”
Zoya Akhtar is currently directing her upcoming film Gully Boy, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. The film is about the underground music industry in Mumbai and Ranveer Singh will be seen playing a rapper in it.
A source close to the director has revealed that after the final cut of Gully Boy has been made, Zoya will start working on the sequel of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The film will bring back all the main leads, which include Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin and Katrina Kaif.
However, the source also added that, “It is too early to talk about the same. Although the basic premise has been locked, Zoya will start working on the screenplay by end of this year once the final cut of Gully Boy is ready. If all goes as planned, the film would go on floors in the second half of 2019.”
