Luv Ranjan working on ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ sequel?


Luv Ranjan is flying high following the success of ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ (SKTKS) (2018), and in a recent interview, he spoke about how the youth romcom has been received well and the possibility of a sequel.

Reported on DNA India, the director was asked if he was expecting the kind of response ‘SKTKS’ (2018) has had. “I did expect a good response as we knew we were speaking a language that would connect with people. The youth has liked my movies so far. This time there was a conscious effort to get the families to come to theatres. And their reactions have been beyond my imagination.”

Asked what he thought was the winning formula that made ‘SKTKS’ (2018) such a hit? “It’s a simple story told in an entertaining way. After a long time, you see a family on screen, where the members are not merely props. The movie is high on emotions and it’s not frivolous. So, family audiences can relate to it.”

Ranjan was was questioned about the reason behind making films which were anti-love. “I first stumbled upon the idea for my directorial debut, Pyaar Ka Punchnama. The subject worked and after some time, we made the sequel. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (SKTKS) was sheer coincidence. It began with the idea of what if one’s best friend and would-be wife don’t get along? I decided to take the pro-guy stance as people expect that from me (smiles).”

So how does Ranjan interpret love and relationship in the present day? “I think the concept of love has become more difficult. Thanks to technology, people have a shorter attention span. Consequently, they have less patience even in relationships. I always feel films are an exaggeration of what you see around you. I take real life and exaggerate it to my liking.”

Questioned whether there will be a sequel to ‘SKTKS’ (2018), Ranjan reveals, “Mostly, a sequel isn’t planned during the making of a film. Whether I will make it or not depends on what I do next in the course of two years. So, while there is a possibility, there are no plans yet.”

Ranjan has made several films such as, ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ (2011) and a web series, ‘Life Sahi Hai’ (2016), where the storyline has mainly been from a male perspective. Asked whether any future films he makes will be based from a female’s point of view? “Yes, I can. Akaash Vani was from the female perspective. I want to make more films like that and hopefully, I will, soon.”

So what’s next on the cards for Ranjan? “I first want to complete the film with Ajay Devgn, which I’m producing. After wrapping that up, I will start thinking about what I’ll direct next.”

‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ (2018) released on the 3rd February, and stars Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh
