The makers of just four days old film Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap, starring Amitabh Bachchan, are planning on making the film a franchise. Inspired by Ajay Devgn's Golmaal, Salman Khan's Dabangg, Hrithik's Krrish and Shahrukh Khan's Don, the director Puri Jagannath wants Big B to endorse the Bbuddah franchise.
Reportedly, when Jagannath wrote the script, he never thought that the character will turn out to be so popular. But gradually, the director has fallen in love with the character and wants to carry it forward. Apparently, Jagannath has met Mr Bachchan and has suggested a sequel for the film. Initially Amitabh did not take the offer seriously, but now he has left the decision solely to the director.
When TOI contacted, Jagannath informed, “Yes, I've received innumerable messages and phone calls asking me to make another film with Big B's Bbuddah character. I think a Bbuddah franchise is a wonderful idea. I'm working on it."
Even though the plans are too immature at the moment, Puri has decided on casting Sonu Sood as Amitabh Bachchan's son in Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap sequel. The director explained that Sood has an uncanny resemblance to the angry, young cop in Zanjeer. “Sonu was chosen to play Mr Bachchan's son over Abhishek (Bachchan) because of the novelty value. And so, his role will remain in the franchise," confirmed Jagannath.
