The 2011 film Chalo Dilli will soon have a sequel called Chalo China. Filmmaker Shashant Shah, who directed Chalo Dilli is happy that the makers are making its sequel and wishes the team good luck.
The sequel will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh, who also made films like Waise Bhi Hota Hai 2 and Quick Gun Murugan. "I am happy that they are taking ahead the film. It will be a franchise now. I am not directing the film, but I wish good luck to the team. I don't know the story of the sequel, but I know the director very well and I am happy for him. I hope the sequel does better than the first one," said Shah.
Chalo Dilli was model-turned-actress Lara Dutta's maiden production venture, which saw her playing the lead along with Vinay Pathak. The film was produced under her banner Bheegi Basanti Productions and the critics described it as a refreshing story with a lot of heart. The film was partially based on American movie called Due Date.
Shah is glad that the story of Chalo Dilli is going ahead."When we finished shooting for Chalo Dilli, Lara and Mahesh Bhupati asked me to write the sequel, but I didn't see the story going ahead. So, later Lara informed me that they are making a sequel and I was more than happy for her." In the sequel, Lara and Vinay will be again seen playing the key roles.
