Is Vishal Bhardwaj planning a sequel to the much-acclaimed Ishqiya? At least that's what a section of the media would like us to believe. But the news is mere speculation. "No, there are no plans to make a sequel. I read about it in the newspapers and was quite amused. The fact is, there's no truth to it. In fact, the thought of making a sequel hasn't even crossed my mind," Ishqiya director Abhishek Chaubey clarifies.
So what is the talented director making next? "I have commenced writing my next script. This one's set in North India. The screenplay will take another two months to complete and only then will we take it further," Abhishek divulges. Is his mentor Vishal Bhardwaj producing the film? "Yes, he is. I will narrate the screenplay to Vishal-ji once I am done," he adds.
