Is Sajid Khan planning Heyy Babyy 2? That"s the buzz in the industry circles. Rumors are rife that Sajid is keen on repeating the cast of the film -- Akshay Kumar, Fardeen Khan, Riteish Deshmukh -- in the sequel that he"s planning. The only change will be the leading lady.
True? “Milap Zaveri [the writer of Heyy Babyy] and I did mull over the idea. We knew that people would expect a sequel if the film works. But I want to try something new with my next film," Sajid clarifies. But Heyy Babyy 2 would make wise business sense. “It would, but I look at it differently. If at all I attempt a sequel, I"ll have to show Akshay, Fardeen and Riteish as 50 + age-wise, since the daughter would"ve grown up. Will they look convincing as older men? I doubt! This would be unacceptable to viewers," he smiles.
So what"s next on the agenda? “I"ve already started working on a new script. All I can say right now is it will shock you," he smiles.
