16 years ago, a new age rom-com ‘Ishq-Vishk’ released and introduced us to the immensely talented Shahid Kapoor. The man went ahead to work in critically acclaimed films like ‘Kaminey’, ‘Jab We Met’, ‘Haider’ and of course ‘Udta Punjab’. Now, the news is surfacing that the hit film is all set for a sequel.
So, producer Ramesh Taurani confirmed this news and said: "Yes, we are making a sequel to Ishq Vishk. The story is in the scripting stage and could be about a teenage romance or a college romance. Hopefully, in the next two-three months, we will lock the script and start looking for the director and cast."
He also remembered the time when he bankrolled ‘Ishq Vishk’ , he said: "When we got Ken Ghosh on board, he had suggested two-three different concepts which would have required established stars and didn’t really impress me. Then, he came up with an idea to be headlined by newcomers, which we really liked and greenlit the project. We worked really hard on the film, the entire process from the first pitch to the wrap took us a year."
Talking about taking Shahid in the lead role, Taurani had this to say: "He was very young then, so I asked him to wait for two-three years before I could launch him. When Ken narrated the final story of Ishq Vishk to me, I told him that I had a hero who fits the part and introduced him to Shahid."
All the fans of that mushy romance are now keeping their fingers crossed for the sequel to be as good as the first part.
