I would love to direct `Singh Is Kinng-2`: Anees Bazmee
New Delhi: Anees Bazmee is currently busy with his upcoming project `Thank You` starring Sonam Kapoor and Akshay Kumar, but the writer-director has not given up on his dream of directing the sequel to his blockbuster 2008 `Singh Is Kinng`.
"Would I love to direct the sequel? Oh, of course yes. After all these were the characters thought by me and I am very attached to them. There could be so many ways to take these characters forward," said Anees for whom `Singh Is Kinng` stays on to be one of his three biggest blockbusters after `Welcome` and `No Entry`.
Both producer Vipul Shah and actor Akshay were enthusiastic about bringing back Happy Singh (central character in the movie) but Bazmee is not sure that he will get the chance to make the sequel.
However, as things stand today, `Singh Is Kinng` is pretty much in no man`s land.
Vipul is busy completing another Akshay starrer `Action Replayy` and is also getting ready for his next film which is currently under pre-production.
Akshay too has started work with Anees on `Thank You` in Canada. On the other hand Bazmee is now busy for next one and a half years at the least with the shooting of `Thank You` and Salman Khan starrer `Ready` happening in parallel.
"I really have no idea about that," replied Anees when asked if had any clue around where exactly did `Singh Is Kinng - 2` stand.
Bazmee also says that no one has approached him to yet to direct the sequel. However, in his heart he is sure that he just needs an indication and he would be all game to begin work on the film.
"If Vipulji really wishes so and approaches me to direct `Singh Is Kinng - 2` then I will certainly do. But as of now, I don`t have any clue whatsoever. We have met on and off and there has been `Hi-Hello` between us. But no, we haven`t discussed the film. Also, I am busy with completion of `No Problem` and beginning of `Thank You` and `Ready`," said Bazmee.
Since Bazmee has his bag full currently, what if Shah goes ahead and either directs the film himself or rope in some other director? Won`t it be a setback for him since it is basically his own baby that would be handed over to someone else?
"You can be attached to a film but not to this extent that you can`t see someone else taking care of it. I won`t feel bad if he or someone else directs the film. Its okay, one moves on," he said.
