When ‘Go Goa Gone’ released in 2013, the film was the first of its kind – an Indian zombie comedy – and thanks to its edgy plot, it amassed a fan base. Directed by Raj and DK, the film featured Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Puja Gupta and Anand Tiwari.

Now, we hear that a sequel to the film is in the works. In a recent interview, producer Dinesh Vijan shared that ‘Go Goa Gone 2’ will go on floors next year. At the moment, they are waiting for the director duo to finish the script, a draft of which will be ready by the end of this month.

Talking about his association with Saif Ali Khan, Dinesh said that the most exciting part about ‘Go Goa Gone 2’ is getting to work with Saif again. He said that it has been a while and that he really missed him. In the past, the two have collaborated as producers on films like ‘Love Aaj Kal’ (2009), ‘Cocktail’ (2012) and ‘Agent Vinod’ (2015). Dinesh even addressed the reports that the two had their share of differences, but that’s a thing of the past.

The overwhelming response to their films with unique plots — zombie apocalypse in “Go Goa Gone” and the urban legend of Nale Ba in “Stree” — has inspired Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK to take these stories forward.

The director duo have started work on “Go Goa Gone” follow-up. The 2013 film featured Saif Ali Khan, Vir Das and Kunal Kemmu that went on to be a surprise hit.

This year, Raj and DK wrote and produced “Stree”. The film starred Rajkummar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi.

“Both the films have an open-ended story because we think as a filmmaker there is more to it. In case of ‘Go Goa Gone’, the first one was unique because there was no precedent to it, like a stoner, a slacker film.

“When we make part two, we give little bit of that (world) and bring something new. Our challenge is that this film should stand out on its own and make it as unique and wacky as possible,” Raj told .

Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan reunite for Go Goa Gone 2

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

Dinesh reveals that while they aren’t back together for good, they’re taking things as they come.

When Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan decided to set up Illuminati Films in 2009, the former was the face of the company, and the latter was the experienced producer. After producing a few films like Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail, Dinesh decided to pursue direction, and Saif decided to move on from the partnership. Now, they’re all set to reunite to bankroll the sequel to Go Goa Gone.

Dinesh reveals that while they aren’t back together for good, they’re taking things as they come. “Saif and I have had a fantastic journey. We worked very hard, but we were also lucky to taste the kind of success that we did. We had a natural partnership that worked. Right now, the only film that we are planning to make is the sequel to Go Goa Gone, because we worked together on the first part. We’re taking it one step at a time,” he says.

The producer also denies that he’s had any discussion with Saif regarding a sequel to Hindi Medium. “I haven’t spoken to anyone about the Hindi Medium sequel. The only film we are working on together is the GGG sequel, which Raj and Krishna are currently writing,” he says.

When we ask him about speculations doing the round regarding the film’s casting, he tells us, “We have just completed the first draft of the script. We will only move ahead with casting when we have the final draft and clarity on Irrfan Khan’s situation. Until then, everything is just speculation.”

Saif Ali Khan to get a new look for Go Goa Gone 2

Filmmaker duo Raj and D.K., who are currently basking in the success of their horror-comedy Stree, are reportedly keen to begin work on their next project — a sequel to Go Goa Gone. And they can’t stop gushing about actor Saif Ali Khan, whom they’ve worked with in the past. “Saif is the most versatile actor I know.

His comic timing is just crazy. We share the same sense of humour, and he gets it just right,” says Raj, adding, “He is up for wacky stuff, so it’s exciting to work with him. The entire Go Goa Gone gang is excited to get back into that world.”

The 2013 film Go Goa Gone was a zombie comedy that told the story of three friends — Hardik (Kunal Kemmu), Luv (Vir Das) and Bunny (Anand Tiwari) — whose dream holiday in Goa turns into a nightmare. Saif Ali Khan played a prominent role in the film, and the filmmakers are hoping to give him a complete makeover for the sequel.

“We have a couple of ideas in mind and we would love to give Saif a cool new look in this film,” says D.K. The film is expected to go on floors in March 2019.

Meanwhile, the filmmakers are thrilled that Stree has been doing so well. “Stree was very close to our hearts. While writing the film, we didn’t know how it would turn out. I am glad that people are liking it and waiting for a sequel,” D.K. says.

Saif Ali Khan: Dinesh Vijan wanted to do something of his own…

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , on August 9, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

It has been a month since the sequel to the zombie comedy, ‘Go Goa Gone’, was announced. Being written by Raj DK and Krishna Nidimoru, the premise of the second instalment is supposedly in sync with the first part that released in 2013 and had a sizeable box office collection. Saif Ali Khan will not only reprise his character, Boris who will be on different mission, but will also back it with his former producer partner Dinesh Vijan who parted ways with him a few years ago. The film is expected to go on floors sometime next year with Saif’s brother-in-law Kunal Kemmu and comedian Vir Das playing their respective characters. It was back in 2014 that Saif and Dinesh had decided to go their separate ways as filmmakers.

Returning to one of their last big successes must be a great feeling. When we posed this to Saif, he told us, “I think we wasted an opportunity to monetise our company Illuminati Films. We could have done so much with it. We could have sold it to someone. We were making some really good films together. Even in these years, we have not shut our company. I think we parted ways because Dinu wanted to do something of his own. When you set up a company like Illuminati, one can do so many businesses. We could have done it back then, maybe we still can – exploiting rights, etc. Who knows? Right now, I’m just happy doing ‘Go Goa Gone 2’ together with Dinu.”
