Mumbai: Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj said that he will never make a sequel to his 2009 film Kaminey, as he does not want to repeat the characters.

"Kaminey 2 will never happen. I want to grow as a filmmaker. I don't want to just make money. I don't make money, I make films. I don't want to repeat characters," Mr Bhardwaj told PTI.

Kaminey starred Shahid Kapoor in a double role and he won accolades for his performance from all quarters. There have been speculations about its sequel since quite some time. The film also starred Priyanka Chopra.

Presently, Mr Bhardwaj is busy with Rangoon, starring Saif Ali Khan, Shahid and Kangana Ranaut.

"I am busy completing the film. It is very taxing. I am happy and content with the film so far. I am very excited about the film," he said.

Mr Bhardwaj had worked with Saif in Omkara and Shahid in Kaminey and Haider. However, it is the first time that he is working with National Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut.

"She is a very fine actor. She is very hard working and prepares a lot for her role. It was easy working with her as she is very hard working. My work became easy as she is a very intelligent actress," he said.(Also Read: Shahid Kapoor Feels 'Fortunate And Blessed' to Work With Vishal Bhardwaj)
