Filmmaker Ritesh Sidhwani attended success party of recently released ‘Fukrey Returns’ on Monday in Mumbai. During media interaction, Ritesh said they are getting ready to announce Don’s next part soon.
Talking about Excel Entertainment’s most successful film ‘Don’ starring Shah Rukh Khan, when asked about the future of the film Sidhwani said, “We are working on that and very soon we will announce that also”
There were rumors that Deepika Padukone may star in next part of ‘Don’, declining the rumors, Sidhwani said, “Deepika is not part of ‘Don’”.
Asked if fans would see more comedy films being made in future, Ritesh said, “Now we have produced comedy and next from our side will be ‘3 Storeys’ which is a small but completely different film, releasing in February. Then we are coming up with ‘Gold’ and ‘Gully Boy’. All these films are different in terms of genre and none of them are comedies. I think people should follow what they believe in and the kind of stories they want to tell. If you try to do the same thing, emulate or copy something which is not inherent then success will not come your way. You should do only if it is coming from within.”
But that does not mean they won’t be thinking about Fukrey franchise’s future, he said, “I think a lot of it depends on writer and director of the film. Last two times, they came up with good stories. I will not force them because it has set the benchmark for us with ‘Fukrey Returns’ and whatever they do next have to better than this. If organically something comes we will definitely create next part of it”.
‘Fukrey Returns’ has crossed Rs. 30 crores in just three days of its arrival at the theatres. The movie has scored a whopping sum of Rs. 32.20 crores at the box office counters at the end of the third day from its release.
