Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is a 2011 Indian comedy-drama road film directed by Zoya Akhtar and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment. The film features an ensemble cast including Hrithik Roshan as Arjun, Abhay Deol as Kabir and Farhan Akhtar as Imraan. It also stars Katrina Kaif as Laila, Kalki Koechlin as Natasha, and Ariadna Cabrol as Nuria along with Naseeruddin Shah making a special appearance.
According to latest reports, Nearly 8 years on, Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara still holds as much relevance and significance as it did during its time of release back in 2011.
While both Hrithik and Farhan have expressed their desire to have a sequel to their blockbuster outing, looks like Zoya Akhtar is now mulling over the idea too. As per a report in koimoi.com, Zoya shall soon start working on ZNMD sequel. “Zoya feels that the audience would be keen to know what the characters are up-to in today’s time. The sequel will retain all the characters and the story will take a 10-year leap,” a source told the entertainment news portal.
Zoya is currently busy with Gully Boys, and thus the film will take some time to go on floors, the source added. “It is too early to talk about the same. Although the basic premise has been locked, Zoya will start working on the screenplay by end of this year once the final cut of Gully Boys is ready. If all goes as planned, the film would go on floors in the second half of 2019,” KoiMoi quoted a source as saying.
Hrithik had voiced his interests for a sequel to ZNMD. “I am aware of that, but not many film-makers can make such movies. So, I have to call Zoya once more, and say, ‘Please write something, and if you think I am good enough, please cast me in your film (smiles)’. I guess I will have to beg her. But I think it [the sequel] will happen maybe three to four years from now,” Duggu had told HT. Farhan Akhtar too had said that he’d like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara to be taken ahead and that it will be great fun.
However, director Zoya herself is busy shooting for Gully Boy with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. As far as the cast goes, Hrithik is filming for Super 30 and also has a film with Tiger Shroff and Krrish 4 in his kitty while Katrina Kaif is busy with Thugs of Hindostan.
