It’s raining sequels and remakes in Bollywood. Every producer wants to cash on to their franchise and excite the audience with its sequel. This year we’re going to see a lot of sequels right from Dostana 2 to Sadak 2. However, if there is one sequel that’s taking too long to develop or go on floors is Go Goa Gone 2.

Go Goa Gone starring Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das was a sleeper hit. The unique concept of three bachelors being stuck among zombies was a surely something fresh and entertaining for the masses. Part 2 of the film was announced in 2018 and was supposed to go on floors in January 2019. Later it was said that the film is pushed and will go on floors in September 2020. However recent reports suggest that the film will now be pushed further. In a recent interaction with media, Kunal Kemmu revealed the real reason for the film’s delay. He said that they don’t have the intellectual property rights of the film which is very important for filming the sequel. Hence the producer and the logistics involved are coming together and working on it after which the filming will be possible. Hence the sequel is taking so long to kick off.

Go Goa Gone is apparently said to be releasing in March 2021. Saif Ali Khan off late has been doing several exciting projects. And this blonde-Russian-zombie role of his in Go Goa Gone was one of his best roles in his career.

Filmmaker Dinesh Vijan said the plot of “Go Goa Gone 2” will centre around aliens, unlike its predecessor which was a comedy about zombies.

Eros international and Maddock Films recently announced the sequel to the 2013 film, which featured an ensemble cast of Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari and Puja Gupta.

The movie followed three men whose holiday to Goa turns out to be a zombie nightmare. Saif played the role of Boris, a Russian mobster-turned-zombie hunter, in the Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK-directed film.

“The team of ”Roohi Afzana” is writing the sequel. The writer came up with the idea and I loved it and then we developed it. Eros said let”s announce it and we did. We just need to give every actor, who was there in the first part, a little more like a 2.0 version and bring something new.

“Zombie element won”t be there, we are doing it with aliens. The world will be similar like same emotion, same comic timing, like stoner comedy, but a new journey,” Dinesh said.

Filmmaker Sriram Raghavan, who is set to direct a film on the life of youngest Param Vir Chakra recipient Arun Khetarpal, says it is the most challenging subject for him.

Dinesh Vijan will be producing the biopic which is tentatively titled “Ekkis”.

“Dinesh offered me this film and when I heard it, I found it interesting. ‘Ekkis’ is a working title. We are set in 1970s. It is the story of two eras. We have finished the script and are doing a rewrite and all,” Raghavan said.

“We have enough people from military on board. These things you can’t get it wrong one bit. When you are working on a real story it is your responsibility to get everything right and stay as true and authentic as possible. It is all the more challenging for me as it is not my zone, I am doing something else. But I liked the story so I am doing it,” he added.
