The film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai produced by Ekta Kapoor under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures won critical acclaim and did good business at the box office.
Now, the producer is planning a sequel and the story for it has to start where the original ended. Since Sultan Bhai ( Ajay Devgn) was killed by his prodigy Shoaib (Emraan Hashmi) in the film, the legacy of Sultan Bhai has to be carried forward. A new lead character has been created for the sequel which will be played by Akshay Kumar.
Initially, there were reports that Akshay Kumar was quoting an astronomical price, but sources from Balaji Motion Pictures say that negotiations are on with the actor and he will soon sign on the dotted line.
The sequel to Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai will be directed by Milan Luthria
