‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel` to get a sequel
New York: The cast of `The Best Exotic Marigold Hote` is all set for another trip to India to shoot a sequel of the movie this January.
Penelope Wilton, who played Jean Ainslie in the Golden Globe-nominated film, told Radio Times that the cast will fly to India in January to begin filming a sequel, reported Huffington Post.
"We had a wonderful time shooting this film the first time and I am thrilled we will be going back in January to do another one. As far as I know everybody will be returning," Wilton said in the interview.
The first film, starring `Slumdog Millionaire` star Dev Patel, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith, revolved around a group of British pensioners who move to a retirement hotel in India, which is run by Sonny, played by Patel.
The film, directed by John Madden, was an adaptation of the 2004 novel `These Foolish Things` by Deborah Moggach.
It is also being reported that nearly all of the production team will return, with the second installment written again by Ol Parker.
The 2011 film was a surprise box-office success.
