Not writing `Delhi Belly 2`: Kiran Rao
Mumbai: ‘Delhi Belly’ may have been a success, but filmmaker Kiran Rao says she is not penning down the script of a sequel.
"I am not writing `Delhi Belly 2`, not writing or even directing `Delhi Belly 2`," Rao told reporters.
A bold, youth-centric drama, ‘Delhi Belly’ was directed by Abhinay Deo. It featured Imran Khan, Vir Das and Kunal Roy Kapoor in the lead.
The film ended with Imran`s uncle and Rao`s husband, actor-producer Aamir Khan, in an item boy avatar in the song "I hate you like I love you". At the end of the song, the banner of a new project ‘Disco Fighter’, which will be directed by Rao, flashed on the screen.
Grapevine had it that the movie would be a sequel to "Delhi Belly". But Rao has put the speculations to rest.
The ‘Dhobi Ghat’ director feels making a sequel to every film is not necessary.
"I guess if you have a good script as your sequel, it makes sense. But I don`t think there is any point in making a sequel just because the first one`s a success. Doesn`t make sense," she added.
‘Delhi Belly’ grossed over Rs.26 crore in its opening weekend.
