There has been much speculation surrounding a sequel to 2009’s ‘Kaminey’, most of it surrounding who would land the lead role. The film’s success was lapped up at the time of release as was Shahid Kapoor’s performance in a double role which focussed on his versatility as an actor. If the B-town grapevine is to be believed, Kapoor will be the lead in the sequel too.
It is thought that Vishal Bhardwaj, Siddharth Roy Kapur (of UTV) and Kapoor are very much hopeful of plans for a second instalment. An insider revealed to PTI, “It (‘Kaminey 2’) is on the cards but when and how is not yet decided. As soon as Vishal’s ‘Matru Ki Bijee Ka Mandola’ is released, work is likely to begin on the project. Also, we will have to wait for Shahid Kapoor to finish shooting for Prabhu Deva’s film”.
‘Kaminey’, which was produced by UTV Motion Pictures, starred Priyanka Chopra as female lead. However, there is no indication whether she would also be present in ‘Kaminey 2’.
