He further adds, “As of now, I am not excited to make sequels. I want to keep creating new characters and new stories. Otherwise, kya hota hai na there is a certain comfort zone in the sequels. You start relying on the nostalgia and try to match that vo mujhe maza nahin … that’s where my stagnation will happen. That’s where I will stagnate. I feel that I may be wrong, but I want to just keep challenging myself. Sequel I feel is a very comfort space or mujhe comfortable nahin hona abhi.”
