Mumbai: Superstar Aamir Khan claims that he is not against sequels but believes that the films like “Sarfarosh” and “Andaz Apna Apna” that have absolutely independent story to tell should go for it.
“I don’t have any objection in a sequel. If I have seen a story, the characters and I liked that, then I would like to know what happened to the character later,” Aamir told IANS.
“If there is a possibility of an equally nice story, different from the first plot but using same characters, I don’t mind making a sequel. Sequel should have an independent story.”
“Like in my film ‘Sarfarosh’, what is ACP Rathod (his character) solving next? Or film like ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ has huge potential for a sequel. I am just stating but none of them has been worked out, so don’t spread that their sequels are coming up,” he added.
He himself is gearing up for the third installment of “Dhoom” franchise, but every sequel should have an independent story, insists Aamir.
“This is one good sequel. Every ‘Dhoom’ has a different story. John comes, then Hrithik comes and now I have a different story,” said Aamir.
After decades Aamir is again set to pen down a script.
He is shaping the story jointly with his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao and nephews Mansoor and Nuzhat Khan.
“I have worked as a co-writer in ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’(1988), ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander’ (1992), ‘Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke’ (1993). Once again I am writing a script with Kiran, Mansoor and Nuzhat. Four of us are writing together. It’s an idea that came to me,” said Aamir.
The 46-year-old maintains that if the script gets locked, Kiran would direct the film.
“Kiran would be directing it. It’s quite a mainstream kind of film so it would be bit unusual for her also. Hopefully I would be acting in it too,” he said.
“It’s too early to decide. If the script gets locked in next five months, then I can say that we are making the film. That news I can give you in six months’ time,” said Aamir.
