There May be a Delhi Belly Sequel in Few Years

A still from Delhi Belly.

Mumbai: Director Abhinay Deo says he and writer Akshat Verma are right now busy with their individual projects but few years down the line, they hope to team up for a sequel to their 2011 hit film Delhi Belly.

The black comedy got good response at the box office and was remade in Tamil as Settai. "We had thought of it (sequel). But the writer Akshat Verma is doing another film and I am busy with my own work. So hopefully in a few years we will be able to do a sequel," Abhinay told PTI.

The film, produced by Aamir Khan Productions, had Imran Khan, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Vir Das, Poorna Jagannathan and Shenaz Treasurywala in the lead.

"I discussed the sequel with Aamir and Akshat. Akshat had taken nine years to make the film and this time if it happens he might take a little less time," Abhinay said.

Delhi Belly was given an 'A' certificate for the use of expletives. Abhinay believes the movie opened doors for adult comedy films. "I think Kya Kool Hai Hum and Masti series are different from Delhi Belly. Our film was a smart adult comedy and it opened doors for a different kind of films," Abhinay said.

Currently, Abhinay is busy with two projects, the second season of Anil Kapoor's TV series 24 and Force 2 starring John Abrahaam, Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin.
