Is a Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara sequel in the making?



Zoya Akhtar, that is currently busy shooting for Gully Boyz with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, has already locked the basic plot for her next directorial.

According to leading dailies, the director will soon start working on the script and screenplay of the sequel to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. 

“Zoya feels that the audience would be keen to realize what the characters are up-to in today’s time. The sequel will retain all the characters and the story will take a 10-year leap,” said the source.

When asked when the film would go on floors, the source said, “It is too early to talk about the same. Although the basic premise has been locked, Zoya will start working on the screenplay by end of this year once the final cut of Gully Boys is ready. If all goes as planned, the film would go on floors in the second half of 2019.”

Zoya has already conveyed her plans to make a sequel to the much-loved film and the entire cast is excited taking the idea. If all goes as planned, Hrithik Roshan will start shooting for ZNMD 2 after he wraps up the work on Super 30 and HR vs Tiger.

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara released in 2011 and the film targetted for our generation (the multiplex audiences). It is because it focused on the importance of friendships, travel, and love. ZNMD introduced many of us to the beauty of  Europe (remember La Tomatina?), but it also taught us a lot about life. From running in front of bulls and kissing someone you love to just having a good laugh with your friends, the film is all about living each day to the fullest, which is the best way to live, TBH.

The movie starred Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin in lead.
