Vidyut Jammwal’s action flick ‘Khudaa Haafiz’ will be getting a second chapter, its been confirmed.
Jammwal and co-star Shivaleeka Oberoi, will be reprising their roles as Sameer and Nargis in ‘Khuda Haafiz Chapter II’. It goes on the floors in the first quarter of 2021.
Jammwal said, Getting his (Sameer, lead character essayed by him) wife back is not the perfect ending. To adjust and successfully live in the society after the woman (Nargis, played by Shivaleeka Oberoi) has gone through this turmoil is the real beginning of the love story. That’s what we’re planning to showcase in the second chapter.”
Producer, Director of Panorama Studios, Abhishek Pathak says, “It is great to be one of the forerunners for canvassing and backing stories for the big screen. The response to Khuda Haafiz was phenomenal and I can only hope viewers will embrace its Chapter II. It will be full of surprises and we’re determined to keep the audience on the edge of their seats in theatres this time around. We take pride in creating quality films that entertain viewers and also further the cause of cinema. Our sole endeavour is to seek fresh content and experiment with the tastes of the audience. We are excited to do so with Khuda Haafiz Chapter II.”
Director-Writer, Kabir says, “I always wanted to take the story forward, but I wanted to wait and see how the audience responds to the film. Khuda Haafiz Chapter II is a more potent and heartfelt love story about how the lead characters come to terms with what has happened to them. It’s an Agni-Pariksha now for both of them and for me to match up to my own expectations as a storyteller and that of the audience that has given such an enormously positive response to Khuda Haafiz. I’m glad that Kumarji, Abhishek and Vidyut feel the same way about this journey we are about to undertake. This is not going to be a franchise film. It’s the final lethal chapter. Expect bigger action for sure, but also a bigger heart, and on a bigger screen.”
‘Khuda Haafiz Chapter II’ is produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak (Panorama Studios) and co-produced by Sanjeev Joshi and Aditya Chowksey. It is written and directed by Faruk Kabir.
‘Khuda Haafiz’ has emerged as Jammwal’s biggest ever hit. The film was released directly on Hotstar, skipping cinemas due to the coronavirus pandemic.
