It’s quite popular these days for films to follow on with a sequel or be turned into a franchise. However, for Kajol the very thought of her films having a sequel is big no no.
In a recent interview with DNA India, when the ‘My Name Is Khan’ (2010) actress was asked if she’d like any of her films to have a sequel, she stated, “No, I don’t think so. I think that each one of my films was, is in a very way weird and unique. A lot of people have asked me that ‘do you want to do a sequel to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge or Kuch Kuch Hota Hai something like that?’ I was like, No, you can’t even remake these films. I feel like when you make a film and there’s a certain magic that is created and you can’t remake that magic.”
“You just can’t and I think it’s a gimmick to make a part two. This is again, completely personal opinion no harm meant or no opinion on anybody’s sequels that are coming out,” added the ‘Dilwale’ (2017) star.
Continuing to add, “They are incredible and that’s why they cannot be remade or made a second part of. That’s why they are unique and then there is a certain magic about them. I think as an actor, also, when you try to recreate things, it’s a fail. When you try to recreate yourself, you’re caricatured of yourself. So I mean, also as actors, we also have to we have to realize that as well, somewhere, work around it.”
On the work from the ‘Helicopter Eela’ (2018) actress will next be seen in the period drama ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ with husband Ajay Devgn. Directed by Om Raut, the film will be releasing in two weeks time on the 10th January 2020.
