After the success of Go Goa Gone, it was time for its sequel. Actor Saif Ali Khan was all set to take things up a notch, and blocked his dates for the shoots as well. But the producers reportedly had a bitter fight, and ˜Go Goa Gone 2: Babaji Ki Booty” went for a toss.

“The producers had locked Saif’s dates but now, after the fallout between Dinesh Vijan and Raj and DK, the film is in limbo. The makers, who had earlier collaborated on producing Stree (2018), were fighting a legal battle after there were disputes regarding profit sharing on the film. They are trying to sort the issue out so that work on the sequel can progress,” says a source, who was quoted by a news publication. Slated to release in March, there are possibilities that the film may never take off.

Earlier, Saif enthralled the audience with his performance in the first season of ˜Sacred Games”, and will soon be seen in the second one as well. The actor will also feature in the upcoming period drama “Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior”.

Saif Ali Khan’s Go Goa Gone sequel delayed

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , on March 17, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

There has been much chatter about the Go Goa Gone sequel – while lead actor Saif Ali Khan confirmed last year that the second instalment is in the works, writer-director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK had earlier hinted that the project may roll by mid-2019.

However, the makers have now decided to push the comic caper to next year as getting dates of the ensemble cast – including Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari – is proving to be difficult. Confirming the news, Nidimoru said, “There are a lot of actors and partners involved, so logistically it takes time for such films to go on floors. We are aiming to roll the film early next year. We have given a narration to all the actors, they have loved the story. Now, it is only a matter of logistics.”

After the stupendous success of Stree in 2018, producer Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films has been looking forward to the next slate of his releases in 2019 with interesting stories. He was even looking forward to the sequel of Go Goa Gone as the producer was happy to collaborate with the cast again especially Saif Ali Khan. But, the dispute with writers and filmmakers of Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the producer decided to part ways with them on the project. While there hasn’t been a clear update on it, Dinesh Vijan has finally spoken about Go Goa Gone 2.

Dinesh Vijan revealed that he has had word with Saif Ali Khan on the sequel. “I spoke to Saif. And we need to get a script in place. That is the most important thing. So when spoke, he said that let’s find a great script out. And I think we are gonna get that started. And it has to be good on paper, right? There’s no sense of doing a sequel if what we have on paper is not strong. So, I think the intent is to get that done. So there is no point on making a sequel until you are strong on paper. I think that’s what Saif also believes and that’s what I also believe. We have wanted to but we haven’t done a film for a while. The intent is to, you know, put together a fantastic script and we’ll get into it once Luka Chuppi releases,” Dinesh said.

Go Goa Gone 2 will bring back the original cast – Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari together for yet another interesting story.

The sequel to Saif Ali Khan’s Go Goa Gone (2013) is in the works right now. Buzz is that the director-writer duo, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, is giving finishing touches to the script. They have also proposed that Saif should experiment with his appearance, because of the time that has gone by between the two films.

Speaking about this, Krishna DK told us, “Raj and I are still debating over how much to change Saif’s character in the sequel. We don’t want to do anything unwanted or random to his blonde character, the Russian, Boris. We are yet to figure out whether he will retain his golden hair or he’ll look different. We have to sit down with him and understand what works for him, too. We have ideas for his looks, but it all depends on Saif. We are keen on keeping a bit of the old Boris, but still do something unique with him in the sequel.”

Directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK on how Saif Ali Khan will sport a different avatar in Go Goa Gone sequel

In the five years since Saif Ali Khan’s Go Goa Gone (2013) introduced the genre of zombie comedy in Bollywood, director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK have often expressed their desire to helm a sequel. Now, the makers are ready to roll the project early next year. Tentatively titled Babaji Ki Booty, the second edition will see Khan reprise his role as Boris.

However, his look will be drastically different from the blonde hair-sporting, gun-toting avatar he flaunted in the first instalment.

DK says, “The story kicks off five years after the first edition. We are trying to see how Boris may have changed in the interim.” Nidimoru adds that they intend to zero in on his on-screen avatar by January.

“We have a few sketches drawn out and will crack the look by January. It could be something more mature or more shocking.” The second instalment will see Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari reprise their roles. Reports suggest that they will be seen fighting aliens, this time around. Nidimoru says, ” We’ll head towards an unexpected direction again.”

Open endings in Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Go Goa Gone’, ‘Stree’ make for a sequel: Raj Nidimoru

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 could have been in The Family Man

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , on September 18, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

Filmmakers Raj and D.K., who are currently shooting for their web series The Family Man with Manoj Bajpayee playing the lead role, reveal that they had initially considered Saif Ali Khan for the part. The two have worked with Saif on Go Goa Gone and Happy Ending in the past, and they’re known to share a great rapport with him.

“For a brief moment I did consider casting Saif, but then I heard that he was doing Netflix’s Scared Games, and the show I am making is for Amazon. I didn’t think he could work for both Netflix and Amazon simultaneously, and so I didn’t pitch the idea to him,” Raj says.

The Family Man is a series about an intelligence agent who’s trying to balance official duties and family obligations. It begins in Kochi and eventually moves to Mumbai and then Kashmir.

“We are exploring a brand new genre, it’s something that we haven’t done before. It will be a drama-thriller in a longer format, and the story will span 10 episodes,” Raj adds. Apart from Bajpayee, the filmmakers have also cast actors from several movie industries, along with Kashmiri actors.
