It is believed that the actor had opted out of the film because he wanted to avoid raunchy comedies. However Riteish says, "I had opted out last year because things really were not shaping up. Also the film lost out on family audiences as some of the dialogues were crude.
I was uncomfortable watching it with my family members. This time, the producers are cutting out the vulgarities and are planning to make it more of a family entertainer. That's one of the reasons that I've agreed to do the sequel."
Ekta Kapoor says, "Rohit Shetty is directing the sequel to Kya Kool Hai Hum. We have been wanting to work with him for a long time. We want to brand the Kya Kool films like the Munnabhai series. The sequel will be a 40-crore film mounted on a grand scale with top actresses."
