Rajkumar Santoshi, a serious film maker who gave us intense films like Ghayal (1990), Damini (1993), Lajja (2001), The Legend of Bhagat Singh (2002), Khakee (2004), Family: Ties of Blood (2006) and Halla Bol (2008), has suddenly turned his attention on the comedy genre and his film “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” with Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif released last week is doing rib-tickling roaring business in India and abroad.
With “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani”, filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi has beaten comedy kings like David Dhavan, Priyadarshan, Rohit Shetty et al at their own game.
The producer of the film Ramesh S Taurani of Tips Music Films wants to make a sequel titled “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani 2” with Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra in the lead to be written and directed by Rajkumar Santoshi himself.
In fact, Rajkumar Santoshi has already written scripts for two films; one with Sunny Deol and the other with Shah Rukh Khan. However, producer Taurani is offering to double the director’s renumeration if he immediately takes up “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani 2”.
