Producer-director Sanjay Gupta is planning a sequel to his hit film Kaante which starred Amitabh Bachchan,Sanjay Dutt, Sunil Shetty, Kumar Gaurav, Namrata Singh Gujral, Rati Agnihotri, Isha Koppikar, Lucky Ali and Mahesh Manjrekar in the lead roles.
However, in Kaante 2, none of the cast in the original film will be there. Sanjay Gupta scripted the sequel keeping in view Arjun Rampal and John Abraham playing the lead roles. Other characters will be played by new comers.
While Kaante was inspired by Reservoir Dogs, The Usual Suspects and Heat, the sequel is said to be an unofficial adaptation of the Hollywood film A Team which is about a few War veterans who want to clear their name from a framed up conspiracy.
Sanjay Gupta’s Dus Kahaniyaan (2007) was the first episodic genre film in Hindi. His recent films were Acid factory(2008), The Great Indian Butterfly(2010) and Pankh (2007)
