Sequels are in! Is Tarun Mansukhani making a sequel to the immensely likable DOSTANA? That’s the buzz in the industry. “Not a bad idea,” Tarun smiles, “But the truth is, I haven’t decided anything yet. I don’t have an inkling of what to make next. But I hope to start working on my next film within a fortnight.”By the time you’re reading this, Tarun must’ve flown to the U.S.; he’s the line producer of his mentor Karan Johar’s MY NAME IS KHAN.
Talking of the DOSTANA sequel, Tarun says that a lot of people have asked him about it. “It would be a great idea to take the Abhishek – John story forward. But the sequel has to be better than the first part,” he adds.
Tarun is simultaneously involved with the animation version of KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI.
Incidentally, Tarun had joined Karan as an apprentice when he started KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI and the talented director must be reliving the moments all over again.
“I owe everything to Karan. He’s family for me. I can never think of branching out of Dharma Productions. Never!” he gets emotional as he says this.
