2001’s ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ is a somewhat cult film which marked the directorial debut of Farhan Akhtar. When asked about whether there are any plans for a sequel, he has revealed that it’s simply not something he had in mind.
“I have not really considered taking the film forward. I feel there was a certain energy, mood and a time in my life when ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ happened and that’s why I wrote it,” said Akhtar, according to TOI.
He went on to add, “Now if I think of (a sequel), I will be forcing the issue. It is going to go from ‘what I wanted to say’ to now ‘something more should be added’. What was great about it when it happened was there was no design”.
The film starred Akhtar, Aamir Khan and Akshaye Khanna in the main roles.
