Pro­ducer Bhushan Ku­mar (right) has con­firmed that the se­quel to 1991 hit film, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, will be made soon but he’s yet to fi­nalise the cast.

The orig­i­nal film, star­ring ac­tors Pooja Bhatt (right, be­low) and Aamir Khan was co-pro­duced by Bhushan’s fa­ther, Gul­shan Ku­mar’s ban­ner, as well as film­mak­ers Ma­hesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt’s pro­duc­tion house. The same ban­ners will work on se­quel too. “It is hap­pen­ing and it’s our joint brand. But the cast has not been de­cided yet,” says Bhushan.

Mean­while, Pooja, who had ear­lier said that she’d want her sis­ter, ac­tor Alia Bhatt, to reprise her role in the se­quel, finds the cu­rios­ity around the cast amus­ing. “While the world is go­ing on and on about who’ll be cast in the film, they for­get about di­rec­tor of the movie, Ma­hesh Bhatt,” says Pooja, the eldest daugh­ter of the film­maker.

“A flop (film) is (cred­ited to) the film­maker and a hit to the ac­tors! I’d love to say that it’s mine and Aamir’s hit, but the back­bone of the movie was Ma­hesh Bhatt and writ­ers,” she adds. Pooja also clar­i­fies that her fa­ther won’t di­rect the film this time around.
