Ten years ago, Zoya Akhtar gave fans the most amazing film ever made in Indian cinema namely Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The road trip movie starring Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol and Farhan Akhtar as the male protagonists, and Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin as the female leads was loved by the audience. Since then, there have been talks about a sequel to this one and looks like something is surely on the way. As reportedly, the makers have finally locked a draft for ZNMD 2. And this one might see Alia Bhatt as the lead. It’s Alia Bhatt VS Prabhas! Gangubai Kathiawadi And Radhe Shyam Set To Clash At The Box Office On July 30.
According to Pinkvilla, Zoya’s brother Farhan who starred in the 2011 film will turn director this time. A source close to the development told the portal, “While Farhan acted in ZNMD, this time around, he will be directing this yet-untitled film. It is written by him and Zoya, and though the concept of road trip remains the same, the narrative is diametrically different from what they did in the 2011 film.
