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 IANS.
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.
