After Khuda Haafiz, directed by Faruk Kabir, opened to an impressive viewership on an OTT platform recently, the makers have now announed its sequel, Khuda Haafiz Chapter II.
The movie, produced by Panorama Studios, will take the love story between the characters (essayed by Vidyut Jammwal and Shivaleeka Oberoi) forward on the big screen. It is also touted to feature thrilling action sequences, which have been wovem seamlessly into the love story.
Vidyut says, “Sameer (his character in the film) getting his wife Nargis (Shivaleeka) back is not the perfect ending to their story. Leading a normal and successful life after the ordel Nargis has been through, is the real beginning of their love story. That’s what we’re planning to showcase in the second chapter.”
Producer Abhishek Pathak shares, “It feel great to be one of the frontrunners canvassing for and backing good stories. The response to Khuda Haafiz was phenomenal and I can only hope that viewers will embrace its second chapter. It will be full of surprises and this time around, we’re determined to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. Our sole endeavour is to seek fresh content and experiment with the taste of the audience to further the cause of cinema, and we are expected to do so with Khuda Haafiz Chapter II.”
Director-writer, Faruk Kabir adds, “I have always wanted to take this story forward, but I waited to Khuda Haafiz. The second chapter will be a heartfelt love story about how the lead characters come to terms with what has happened to them. It’s an agni-pariksha for both of them and me, to match up to my own expectations as a storyteller and that of the audience, who have given such a positive response to Khuda Haafiz. I’m glad that Kumarji (Kumar Mangat Pathak, producer), Abhishek and Vidyut feel the same way about his journey that we are about to undertake. It’s not going to be franchise film, and this is the final chapter. Expect bigger action for sure, but also a bigger heart, and on a bigger screen.”
Khuda Haafiz Chapter II, produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak (Panorama Studios) and co-produced by Sanjeev Joshi and Aditya Chowksey, will go on floors in the first quarter of 2021.
