Director Sudhir Mishra has confirmed that there will be a sequel to his cult 2005 film Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi soon. The filmmaker told The Indian Express that they are working on a script, the film will be produced again by Pritish Nandy.

“Sometimes some films become bigger than the actual idea, for example, Hazaaron (Khwaishen Aisi) has become bigger than me. So, I have to treat this with respect, and not do it just for reasons of commerce, or just because I want to do it. The script will decide who’s there and who’s not. We’ll take about six to eight months to do that,” he said.

The original film had Chitrangada Singh, Shiney Ahuja, and Kay Kay Menon in the lead.

Set against the backdrop of the Emergency, the movie tells the story of three young people in the 1970s, when India was undergoing massive social and political changes. The title is taken from a poem by Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib.

Reminiscing about the film, Mishra insisted that the original made it big purely because it broke all the rules there is. “Everybody cast was new, except Kay Kay (Menon). We shot the whole film in 70 days, on the road, at a go,” he says. The new film will have a continuation from the first.
