In the light of recent news reports that the Deols are miffed by the Yamla Pagla Deewana director, Samir Karnik, Sunny Deol has clarified that the sequel to YPD will happen, with or without Samir at the helm.
Talking exclusively to Koimoi.com on the sets of his next film, Mohalla Assi, Sunny said, “The Deols will definitely be doing Yamla Pagla Deewana 2. But I am not sure who will be directing the film. I have spoken to (director) Samir (Karnik)… it’s all up to him (as) he’s got some assignments. If he is there, fine. But YPD 2 goes on.”
However, the sequel is still some time away. Jasvinder Singh Bath, the writer of the first installment, has started writing, but nothing is finalised as yet. “I am toying with a few ideas that will make the sequel even more fun,” is all that Jasvinder will reveal.
While Sunny is gung-ho after the success of YPD. “Our industry is such that we work only Friday-to-Friday. Fortunately enough, our Friday (referring to ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’) was a good one, so we will see to it that we have some more good Fridays to carry on…” Well, we will just hope, that Samir or not, the sequel is even more fun that the first!
