Sequel to Humraaz Possible, Say Abbas-Mustan

A still from Humraaz.

Mumbai: Filmmakers Abbas-Mustan said that they are working on a script which can be developed as a sequel to their 2002 film Humraaz.

"There is one script and it can be developed as Humraaz 2. We are working on it. The idea is that it can be made into a sequel. We will go for a younger lot of actors but we are still working on it," Abbas-Mustan told PTI.

Humraaz featured Bobby Deol, Akshaye Khanna and Ameesha Patel.

The director duo is currently working on Race 3, which is the third instalment in the Race franchisee.

Race released in 2008 and featured Saif Ali Khan, Bipasha Basu, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor and Sameera Reddy in pivotal roles.

Race 2, which was a sequel to Race, released in 2013. The film revolved around the concepts of sibling rivalry, betrayal and passion.

"It is in the scripting stage. It is too early to talk about it. The character of Anil Kapoor will be a part of the project. There will be two heroines," Abbas-Mustan said.

Saif Ali Khan and producer Ramesh Taurani reportedly had some financial issues. "I don't think so there was any problem with money. Saif has done three-four films with Ramesh Taurani (producer of Tips Films)," they added.(Also Read: Race 3 on cards, says producer Ramesh Taurani)

The grapevine also suggested that Shah Rukh Khan was supposed to feature in a sequel to Baazigar. "No I don't think it is true. Shah Rukh Khan cannot be a part of it. We love him, he is busy. He is on the top now. I am happy for him," they said.

Directed by Abbas-Mustan, Baazigar featured SRK and Kajol in the lead roles. The film was reportedly inspired by the Hollywood film A Kiss Before Dying.
