Farhan Akhtar had earlier said that he was considering making a sequel to his cult classic Dil Chahta Hai.

If you are a millennial, you cannot have missed Farhan Akhtar’s Dil Dhahta Hai. The cult classic, which made us want to take weekend trips to Goa with our squad, remains a favourite even now. Fans could not contain their excitement when there was talk of a sequel, and speculation was rife that it may be an all-girl cast this time.

However, director Farhan Akhtar has confirmed that a sequel is not on the cards, much to the disappointment of fans. “I have not really considered taking the film forward. I feel there was a certain energy, mood and a time in my life when Dil Chahta Hai happened and that’s why I wrote it,” he said.

5. Akshaye Khanna was originally supposed to play Akash. But when Aamir Khan was brought on, they swapped roles.

6. Saif Ali Khan was almost not going to do the movie because it was made with sync sound, instead of getting actors to dub their lines.

Getting Reel with Saif Ali Khan – he talks about his movies

RANGOON (2017)

Vishal Bhardwaj has the talent to create a world of his own, give his characters fascinating quirks and draw you out as a performer. His upcoming film, Rangoon, took me to the jungles of Arunachal Pradesh, into huts where you lived out of a sleeping bag. It gave me a chance to wear the stiff-as-cardboard shirts from my Winchester college days in England and the Trilby hats I usually get to dust out only when Kareena and I are at Gstaad during New Year’s. It also gave me a chance to research cufflinks and ties, inhabit the world of Hollywood’s ’40s heroes like Fred Astaire, Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn, and my grandfather Iftikhar Ali Khan

I loved this journey into the past and my only regret is that I forgot the white gloves lying in my wardrobe which would have looked so good with the black dinner jackets. Rustom Billimoria is an action hero-turned-studio boss. The physicality of the role was a challenge because Rusi’s lost his right hand while doing a stunt and this meant I had to do everything left handed, even a sword fight. That wasn’t too difficult actually since I’ve had some practise playing cricket left-handed.

A couple of days into the first schedule, Vishal who’d asked me to bulk up for the role given the guy’s action background, felt I should cut down a bit. I told him it was too late, besides I’ve seen guys in the gym working out with one hand so it was okay. During our earlier film, Omkara, Vishal was less busy. This time, he had his hands full and I had to prep up more though he still contributed to my performance. And the artistic integrity I found on the sets of Omkara I discovered again only in Rangoon. That, I’d say, is the magic of Vishal Bhardwaj!

Will we ever see a sequel for Saif Ali Khan’s Dil Chahta Hai?

Farhan Akhtar is ready to roll out his plan for a Dil Chahta Hai sequel. He has hinted that there something more in store about this piece of news.

We all love sequels, especially if the sequel is a film such as Dil Chahta Hai. Farhan Akhtar’s debut was a path-breaker in its time for it was so real. Granted it dealt with people like us and their first-world problems, but it was as much about friendship, life and love.

There were no backup dancers — unless they were ironical — and there was no melodrama either. If heartbreak happened, sometimes you could deal with it with a trip to Goa, at other times, it changed your life.

Starring Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna as the three male protagonists, it stayed with the 90s kids. Probably that is why there is so much interest in its sequel, if it happens. Director Farhan Akhtar teased us with one when Dil Chahta Hai completed 15 years.
