Abhinay Deo directed Aamir Khan produced ‘Delhi Belly’ in 2011. The film landed itself in a little bit on controversy but was appreciated by the audiences. Deo has said that he would like to make a sequel in a few years.
Deo told TOI, “We had thought of it (sequel). But the writer Akshat Verma is doing another film and I am busy with my own work. So hopefully in a few years we will be able to do a sequel”.
“I discussed the sequel with Aamir and Akshat. Akshat had taken nine years to make the film and this time if it happens he might take a little less time,” said Deo about the Imran Khan, Vir Das, Kunaal Roy Kapur starrer.
Deo said he believes that the ‘A’ certificate the film received managed to pave the way for the other sex comedies and the like that have been made since. “I think Kya Kool Hai Hum and Masti series are different from Delhi Belly. Our film was a smart adult comedy and it opened doors for a different kind of films”.
