Govind Nihalani plans sequel to `Drohkaal`
Mumbai: Veteran filmmaker Govind Nihalani has expressed willingness to make a sequel of his 1994 film `Drohkaal`.
The film dealt with India`s fight against terrorism. It shows the mental and psychological trauma that honest police officers go through in their fight against a group of ruthless terrorists.
"People have been suggesting me to make a sequel to `Drohkaal` to take forward this film. This will not happen immediately. But I would like to follow this thing," Nihalani told PTI.
The 1994-film received positive reviews. Actor Ashish Vidyarthi won the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for this film.
Meanwhile, Nihalani is busy working on a sequel of his 1983 hit cop drama `Ardh Satya`. The highly-acclaimed film had Om Puri, Amrish Puri, Smita Patil, Naseeruddin Shah, and Sadashiv Amrapurkar in the lead.
It is the story of a policeman, played by Om Puri, struggling with the evils around him and with his own frailties. `Ardh Satya` is considered to be one of the best cop films made in India and it went on to win many awards.
"We are busy working on the script. It is in development stage. We have not locked any actors as of now," Nihalani said.
The makers have not yet finalised the star cast for the sequel, but they hope to retain veteran actor Om Puri. If all goes well the film will go on floors this Diwali.
