Badsha still remains one of the most unforgettable films for Rajinikanth fans. Its style of making and Rajini's extraordinary performance made the film a big blockbuster. Its collection record remains unbeaten even today in Tamil film industry. It also created new waves in Telugu. In fact, Badsha made Rajini a threat to Telugu megastars. It is still attracting lots of sponsors whenever it is aired on the TV. Now, its director Suresh Krishna is planning to do its second part with Rajini as the hero.
"No one can forget the records created by Badsha. Still, it is looking as fresh as ever. Thanks to the peppy screenplay penned by veteran RM Veerappan. Now, I would like to take the second part of the blockbuster with the superstar. This will be the most interesting film in the Industry. I have already discussed with the superstar about this and he asked me to get ready with the complete script. I have some more scripts suitable for him but he hasn't confirmed anything as of now. If he approves the scripts, there will be a chance to see an Annamalai or Badsha again," said Suresh Krishna.
But the past records of the director indicates that his chances of directing Rajini's forthcoming film is very thin. The director had worked with the superstar in four films, of which Baba is the last. Everybody knows the fate of his other films. He failed to give any hit films after Baba with three films going down the drains. His association with Kamal in Aalavandhan, Vijayakanth in Gajendra and Dhanush in Parattai Engira Azhagusundaram did not work.
Will Rajini gives his call sheet to this ex-box office magician? Let us wait and watch what the superstar will say about the director's plan of making Badsha sequel or Badsha-2!
