If you’ve watched Zoya Akhtar’s multi-starrer Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara seven years ago, you remember how this single movie gave us life lessons worth remembering. It was an immense hit, not only among the critics, but also among the cinephiles. Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin’s performance has been praised big time by critics across the country. Ever since then, we’ve been waiting with bated breath for a sequel to ZNDM.
As per a Koimoi.com report, Zoya Akhtar is planning to helm a Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara sequel. A source is quoted saying, “Zoya feels that the audience would be keen to know what the characters are up-to in today's time. The sequel will retain all the characters and the story will take a 10-year leap."

Zoya is currently working on her next Gully Boy, with Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. She will start working with the script of ZNMD 2 soon.
“Although the basic premise has been locked, Zoya will start working on the screenplay by end of this year, once the final cut of Gully Boy is ready. If all goes as planned, the film would go on floors in the second half of 2019," the source added.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara revolves around three childhood friends Arjun (Hrithik Roshan), Imran (Farhan Akhtar) and Kabir (Abhay Deol). They go on a road trip which turns out to be life-changing for them.
Farhan Akhtar once told PTI about Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara sequel, “I would like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara to be taken ahead... I think it will be great fun.”
