Director Vivek Agnihotri is planning to make part two of his last directorial venture Hate Story, which did average business at the box office. The film, described as an erotic thriller, starred Gulshan Devaiya, Paoli Dam and Nikhil Dwivedi in the lead roles. It was produced by Vikram Bhatt and it has done average business at the box office.
Vivek says that Hate Story was released with an A certificate from the Censors and this genre usually appeals to the multiplex audience. Moreover this genre has not been fully explored in Bollywood.
Script work is in progress for Hate Story 2 which will not be a sequel. There will be a new story which will be enacted by fresh faces.
