Is Sajid Khan planning HEYY BABYY 2? That’s the buzz in the
industry circles. Rumors are rife that Sajid is keen on repeating the cast of
the film -- Akshay Kumar, Fardeen Khan, Ritesh Deshmukh -- in the sequel
that he’s planning. The only change will be the leading lady.
True? “Milap Zaveri [the writer of HEYY BABYY] and I did mull over
the idea. We knew that people would expect a sequel if the film works. But
I want to try something new with my next film,” Sajid clarifies. But HEYY
BABYY 2 would make wise business sense. “It would, but I look at it
differently. If at all I attempt a sequel, I’ll have to show Akshay, Fardeen
and Ritesh as 50 + age-wise, since the daughter would’ve grown up. Will
they look convincing as older men? I doubt! This would be unacceptable
to viewers,” he smiles.
So what’s next on the agenda? “I’ve already started working on a new
script. All I can say right now is it will shock you,” he smiles.
