Mumbai: Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj says he will never make a sequel to his acclaimed caper thriller "Kaminey", as he does not want to repeat the characters.

"'Kaminey 2' will never happen. I want to grow as a filmmaker. I don't want to just make money. I don't make money, I make films. I don't want to repeat characters," Bhardwaj told PTI.

Released in 2009, "Kaminey" starred Shahid Kapoor in a double role and he won accolades for his performance from all quarters. There have been speculations about its sequel since quite sometime. Presently, Bhardwaj is busy with "Rangoon", starring Saif Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut.

"I am busy in completing the film. It is very taxing. I am happy and content with the film so far. I am very excited about the film," he said.

The "Omkara" director has worked with both Saif and Shahid earlier. However, it is the first time that he is working with National award winning actress Kangana Ranaut and is all praise for her.

"She is a very fine actor. She is very hard working and prepares a lot (for the role)," he said. "It was easy working with her as she is very hard working. My work became easy as she is a very intelligent actress," he further said.

In the the period-romance-drama "Rangoon" set against the backdrop of World War-II, Shahid plays the role of a soldier while Kangana essays a 1940s actress.
