'Judwaa' sequel dropped for now?
Sajid Khan bows out of Sajid Nadiadwala's 'Judwaa 2' but plans to work with him again in 'Housefull 3'
Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan have amicably decided not to do the sequel of Judwaa 2 together. Apparently, because the script did not impress both director and producer.
As a result, Sajid Khan has bowed out of the project. However, the two close friends will work together again in Housefull 3, post which the remake of Judwaa will go on the floor. Meanwhile, Nadiadwala who is co-writing the script will re-work on it. While Khan will now concentrate on the remake of Himmatwala. Apparently, now Nadiadwala is hunting for another director for the project.
A source informs, “Judwaa 2 was expected to start mid-next year. However, now they have scrapped the script. Both Nadiadwala and Khan were of the opinion that after making three blockbusters back-to-back, they did not wish to compromise on the script. Sajid Khan meanwhile is working on Himmatwala and after that will be doing Houseful 3. Nadiadwala now wants a fresh idea for the film.”
Sajid Khan says, “Yes, I am not doing Judwaa 2. Sajid and I are like brothers and we decided that I would not be directing this film. No film for us is more important than our friendship and I will be making Houseful 3 with him in the near future.” Sajid Nadiadwala says, “I was writing the film and I feel it will take me a lot of time to finish the script. I want the script to be at least at par with the original Judwaa. I have too much on my plate right now and I do not wish to let the quality of my film suffer due to the quantity.”
