Mumbai: Producer Ratan Jain says he is planning to make a sequel to 1992 superhit film `Khiladi` with a newcomer.

Directed by Abbas-Mustan, the 1992 hit movie `Khiladi` starred Akshay Kumar in the lead role and it also featured Ayesha Jhulka and Deepak Tijori, among others.

"Films that I have made are not too old. I started working in the 1990s, so yes, youth knows about my film. Yes, we are trying various ideas to come up with different films," Jain said.

"I don`t know about remake, but we are planning to make a sequel to `Khiladi`. It`s in a very early stage, we are still scripting," added the filmmaker.

Jain, who had worked with Akshay in `Dhadkan` as well, plans to rope in a new face for the movie.

"Most probably we will cast a new comer for the sequel," he said when asked about the cast.
