Sanjay Dutt and filmmaker Subhash Ghai are back together for the film’s sequel titled ‘Khalnayak Returns’. Sanjay Leela Bhansali had apparently approached Subhash Ghai with an offer to remake the film. Sanjay also wanted to cast Ranveer Singh in it but later the idea was dropped.
The Mumbai Mirror quoted Subhash Ghai, as saying, “We’ve made an agreement to produce ‘Khalnayak Returns’ which will roll by the year end or early next year. I’d met Sanjay when he was out on parole and discussed the idea with him.”
When asked Subhash Ghai about the sequel, he revealed the story line and saying the movie would kick off with ‘Ballu’ character coming out of the jail after 20 years to find himself in a completely different world. But, the circumstances will take him back to the world of crime.
Subhash Ghai also revealed that the title track of the movie, ‘Nayak Nahi Khalnayak Hoon Main’ would be retained in the sequel and he is yet to take a call on the track ‘Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai’. Subhash Ghai also promised that the film will be a big multi starrer with many new characters.
