Saif Ali Khan plans a sequel to Main Khiladi Tu Anari

Posted: May 4, 2011 in Saif Ali Khan Updates

It’s tough to forget the dance floor with blinking colourful lights, the whistle and the tough dance moves executed by one of the hit jodis Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar in the title track of the 1994 film Main Khiladi Tu Anari.

The story of an actor trying to help a cop out in a murder case became an instant hit. Saif, it seems, wants to go back to the action thriller once again.

The actor, after 17 long years has decided to make a sequel with his original co-star Akshay under the banner of Illuminati Films, his own production house.

“You know the funny part is that I wanted to make a sequel to Main Khiladi Tu Anari with Akshay when it had released but people asked me not to be silly since sequels don’t work in India. I however, kept saying that they do.

Sequels work all the time in America. Making a sequel to the the film is a pretty good idea and I might do it now,” confirms Saif.

Though Saif has too many films on hand as a producer at the moment, his plan to remake the 1994 hit is definitely on.

Meanwhile, after completing Agent Vinod, Illuminati Films is choc-a-bloc with films like Homi Adajania’s project tentatively titled Cocktail, a film with Raj and DK which will star his sister’s boyfriend Kunal Khemmu and a film with Fox Studios based on a comic book.

Clearing the air about him trying to give Kunal’s career a much-required push through his project with Raj and DK, Saif says, “That’s not the reason I am doing the film and while I would love to support my family and friends, I don’t believe in it.

The fact is that Kunal sent the directors to me as they were looking for a producer. I liked the script and Kunal fit the role. And yes, Soha is not part of the film.”

On a spree to clear all misunderstandings and mis-reporting by the media, Saif who has been training in a new form of martial arts, that too from a Vietnam based action director for his film Agent Vinod, went on to explain what exactly happened between him and Sriram Raghavan. “I never bothered to clarify.

I knew once the shoot starts, everything will be fine. Sriram is very much the captain of the ship. There were never any differences,” said the actor.

When asked why the films with Vishal Bhardwaj, Kunal Kohli and Siddharth Anand, incidentally all starring Priyanka Chopra (the actress not being a particular favourite with Kareena Kapoor) failed to take off with Saif who was being considered initially, the actor replied, “I have three films with Deepika. Isn’t it strange? First of all, I don’t think there is any issue here. We can keep our professional and personal lives separate.”
