Priyadarshan is known for his unique style comedy films but the man is completely against sequels. Though sequels have become a trend in Bollywood lately, Priyadarshan does not believe in the idea. He recently turned down the offer to make Malamaal Weekly 2. This was the second time that he denied to make a sequel, the first one being Phir Hera Pheri. He thinks that no one can make a film better than the original and he is completely against tampering the originals.
Priyadarshan will however, be making a film called Kanchivaram in October under the banner of Percept (India). The film will be set in 1942 and will show the struggle of textile workers when communism started. This will be a serious film with content that can be sent to film festivals.
The director however, is currently shooting Bhagam Bhaag starring Govinda, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Paresh Rawal. Besides films, Priyadarshan is also planning to start an English newspaper in South India and he will also be the editor of the publication. The main reason to start a publication is to fulfill the dream of his father who was a librarian.
