There have been lots of rumours on a sequel to Blockbuster Baasha starring Rajinikanth. Now, a clarification has arrived straight from the horse's mouth. Director Suresh Krishna himself has cleared the airs by claiming that he has no such plans.
Suresh Krishna has said that the speculations might have emerged
from his book on the superstar. In the book, he had mentioned that
he wishes to make a sequel to Baasha and this statement
could have made people to speculate about its sequel.
"I think the rumours must have surfaced from my book on the
superstar. I had mentioned in it that I wish to work
Baasha sequel, but never had confirmed that I'm working on
it. People might have totally misunderstood it," Suresh told
The filmmaker had released his book titled 'My Days with Baasha
- The Rajinikanth Phenomenon' recently. Suresh Krishna says that he
had discussed about the project with the superstar long time ago,
but it could not be materialised for some reasons.
"Rajini sir and I discussed the possibility of a sequel many
years ago, but it never worked. The plan was later dropped as I got
busy with other commitments. Currently, I'm busy directing a Tamil
serial called Unarvugal," he said.
Baasha was a milestone movie in Rajinikanth and Suresh Krishna's career. It was an action-thriller, which was inspired by Bollywood movie Hum. Nagma, Shashi Kumar and others were part of the film.
