Mumbai, Jun 28 : Actor Aamir Khan, who will be seen in the third part of the superhit ‘Dhoom' series says sequels should have different and interesting stories to be carried forward and feels there surely can be a second instalment of two of his successful films ‘Sarfarosh' and ‘Andaz Apna Apna'.
“I don't have any objections to sequels. I think if I have liked the casting, the story or film or characters then I would like to know what happens to them later. If there is a possibility of equally nice story...that is different and unusual from the first one but using the same characters (then why not),” Aamir told PTI.
“The ones that I feel have the potential to be made into sequels are - ‘Sarfarosh' and ‘Andaz Apna Apna' . These are the one who have potential but none of them are being worked on,” he said.
Directed and written by John Matthew Matthan, ‘Sarfarosh' (1999) dealt with an Indian police officer's fight to stop cross-border terrorism. The action film starred Aamir Khan as ACP Ajay Singh Rathod, Sonali Bendre as his love and Naseeruddin Shah in a negative role. The film did moderately well in the box office and was declared as an above average grosser.
“In case of a sequel to ‘Sarfarosh'...you see one can show how the character of ACP Rathod gets a new case to solve. So even I will like to do it. Though John has not written it but conceptually I don't mind. But next part should be different, new and something interesting. It should not be like we have just altered the script and made a film. I won't do that,” Aamir said.
“I would be happy to do ‘Sarfarosh 2' provided there is a good script. It should be as good as the first one. I don't want to destroy the goodwill of the first one by making a bad part of it,” the 46-year-old actor said.
‘Andaz Apna Apna', a cult comedy directed and written by Rajkumar Santoshi, starred Aamir, Salman Khan, Karishma Kapoor and Raveena Tandon in the lead. There is a buzz in B-town that a sequel to this 1994 hit film is underway but nothing is concrete as yet.
Meanwhile, ‘Dhoom 3' spearheaded by Aditya Chopra, will be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya fondly known as Victor.
After John Abhrama and Hrithik Roshan played baddie guys in the ‘Dhoom' and ‘Dhoom 2' respectively, its now Aamir's turn to play baddie in the Yash Raj Film's superhit franchise, while actors Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra would continue with their famous pair of ‘Jai' and ‘Ali'.
The theme of the ‘Dhoom' series centres around thrill, action, bike chases, handsome thieves, smart and daring stealing plans. After the success of ‘Dhoom' (2004) and ‘Dhoom 2' (2006), talks are rife on its third instalment.“'Dhoom 3'.. its a very nice story. With every sequel they have a nice story and different characters like Hrithik, John and me...we all three had different stories,” Aamir said.
The makers are in search of a leading lady to be played opposite Aamir. The film will begin shooting end of this year and is slated for a 2012 Christmas release.
Talking about sequels from an audience point of view,Aamir said, “I don't mind as an audience. But I feel that doesn't happen often. Usually what happens is when a film becomes a hit then the producer is keen on announcing the part two. Then they make ‘badhi' script and make the film. As an audience I feel its cheating.” PTI
