Here's some fantastic news for you to make your weekend even more amazing! Sanjay Dutt's iconic character Ballu Balram from 'Khalnayak' is all set to return the silver screen and the actor himself will be reprising the role.
Director Subhash Ghai confirmed this development to Mumbai Mirror and was quoted saying, "We've made an agreement to produce Khal Nayak Returns which will roll by the year end or early next year. I'd met Sanjay when he was out on parole and discussed the idea with him. He made a soundtrack with some voiceover in the background which I loved. Impressed with his passion for the film, we decided to take the idea forward."
When prodded on the sequel Ghai further revealed that it will kick off with Ballu coming out of the jail after 20 years to find himself in a completely different world. Circumstances take him back to the world of crime. "It'll be a multi-starrer with many new characters. You never know, Ballu might find another khalnayak, among them."
He will hand over the reins to a younger director but will be creatively involved in the music and also conduct a workshop for the actors. Will we get to hear the chartbusters, "Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai" and "Nayak Nahi Khalnayak Hoon Main" again? "The title track will be retained but we are yet to take a call on "Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai"," Ghai adds, dismissing that Jackie's son Tiger Shroff has been roped in for the sequel. "We haven't singed anyone yet. We are completing the script first. There's lots of excitement and we'll announce further developments at the right time," he signed off.
