Deemed as one of Bollywood’s most impressive comic capers, talks about the sequel of Andaz Apna Apna has been doing rounds for a while now. However, with Rajkumar Santoshi readying to release next next film Phata Poster Nikhla Hero starring Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz, there is also fleeting news that the director might shift his focus on Andaz Apna Apna 2 soon after.
To make the sequel more commercially viable, the director is looking to loop in younger stars. A leading daily reported that Santoshi is considering Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor for the roles that Aamir Khan and Salman Khan have immortalized as Amar and Prem. Rajkumar Santoshi has worked with Ranbir previously in Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani that did fairly well the box office and he seems adequately satisfied with Shahid’s work in Phata Poster Nikhla Hero as well.
However, nothing official has been announced yet as the director has immersed himself in promoting his upcoming flick PPNH and will look into the final script and casting of Andaz Apna Apna only after that!
