Pooja, Bhushan confirm a sequel
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.
