Rumours have been rife about the sequel of ‘Tere Naam’ (2003) being in the works for a number of weeks. While, further details are awaited on the project, filmmaker Satish Kaushik is set to reunite with Salman Khan for a film called ‘Kaagaz’.

Reports say that Khan will produce the film, which stars Pankaj Tripathi and Monal Gajjar. Kaushik was cited in Mumbai Mirror saying, “Salman is the film’s good luck charm and it all happened because of Bharat. One day, last August in Malta, we were discussing Salman’s role in promoting good cinema and talent and in the course of the conversation, he asked me what I was working on. I told him about Kaagaz and he loved the story. I asked him if he’d like to present the film and he immediately agreed. I narrated the script to him after returning to Mumbai, and we started filming in October. I am happy to inform that Salman Khan is on board as a producer.”

He addedm “I am directing a film after a long time and have tried to reinvent myself. Stree, Badhaai Ho and Article 15 are new-age cinema and Kaagaz belongs to that space. Pankaj has done a brilliant job. The film is very close to my heart and I am grateful to Salman for supporting my vision. After Tere Naam I couldn’t make another film with him, I am glad that we have collaborated on this one. When he saw the rushes, he reacted, saying, ‘Sir, iski copy nikalo,’”

‘Kaagaz’ will be based on real-life incident of UP’s farmer, ‘Lal Bihari’, who was declared dead on papers.
