Released in 2004, Khakee starring Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Tusshar Kapoor, Ajay Devgn and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – will complete 20 years next year. And now, the latest report reveals that a sequel of the film is in the works.
According to a report, actor-filmmaker Aryeman Ramsay, son of late producer Keshu Ramsay (who backed the original film), has confirmed that the sequel is in the works and Tushar Kapoor will be a part of it.
According to News18, Aryeman said, “Yes, we are planning a sequel to Khakee. The scripting is on, and we have a basic plot in mind. We plan to go on floors with the film by next year as it will also mark 20 years of the original film, which is still remembered and watched by the fans and audiences”.
Aryeman further added, “My family is close to Akshay sir, but unfortunately his character dies in the first part so we can’t feature him. Ajay sir (Ajay Devgn) and Aishwarya’s character also die in the film. I will be initiating talks with Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) as soon as I have a proper script in place.”
“I would also love to have Tusshar Kapoor continue his character in the film. Along with them, we will have a fresh casting. I have had a word with Rajkumar Santoshiji and would only want him to direct the sequel,” he concluded.
