Shahid Kapoor on sequel of Jab We Met
'Jab We Met' enjoyed a re-release in theaters earlier this year, and during an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Shahid Kapoor had discussed the potential for a sequel to the film. His remarks had sparked speculation and interest among fans regarding the continuation of the beloved story.
Shahid had said, "It really depends on the quality of that script. So, if there is a script that demands a sequel and I feel it is the kind of script that you read and say ‘man this will be better than the original this can match up to the original’ I would do it but if I feel it’s not and I’m just trying to use the brand value of the original thing to do then I feel that that ‘why are you doing it, don’t do it’."
Talking about Kareena Kapoor Khan's Geet, he added, "For Geet (Kareena Kapoor’s character), I really doubt anybody else will be able to do that kind of justice." For the unversed, the duo was last seen together in 'Udta Punjab'.
