New Delhi: It is the era of sequels and after the recent success of `Murder 2`, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has announced the sequel to the Emraan Hashmi-Sonal Chauhan starrer `Jannat`.

Bhatt is not repeating the original cast from the 2008 film and has roped in Kunal Khemu and Amrita Puri for `Jannat 2`.

"Jannat 2: When dreams become nightmares. Starring Kunal Khemu and Amrita Puri. Directed by Vishal Mahadkar. Writer: Upendra Sidhaye," Bhatt tweeted today.

Khemu was last seen in `Golmaal 3`, while Amrita made her Bollywood debut with `Aisha` last year.

Beside the cast, Bhatt has replaced the director as well. Kunal Deshmukh directed `Jannat` and reports suggested last year that he was working on a concept based on the match fixing scandal in Pakistan for the sequel.
