Anil Sharma was supposed to start shooting the Apne 2 sequel featuring Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, and Karan Deol in March. However, due to the second pandemic wave, the preparations were cancelled.
The director says, “The lockdown has given us the chance to improve the script further. Neeraj Pathak has written the film. We are not able to plan the exact schedule right now but the idea is to take it on floors around September.”
Talking about the locations of the film, Anil says, “It’s a massive set up. We plan to shoot in London and Punjab. It’s the first time that I am making a part two and we are taking the story of this family forward with Karan being the latest addition to the cast. In my opinion, Apne 2 is a very emotional story, which will find a place in heart of the people. I will try my best to make it better than the prequel.”
“This is a unique project and I want to make it one of the best films of my life. It has a strong emotion, let’s see how the things shape up.”
Apne’s title track is a huge hit with high recall value. Himesh Reshammiya composed the music. Anil acknowledges that music was crucial to Apne’s success and affirms that HR will compose the music for Apne 2 as well.
“I had Himesh (Reshammiya) compose the music of Genius too and our song, Tera Fitoor was a big hit. I reunite with him on Apne 2 and you can expect a musical from us,” Anil concluded while talking to Pinkvilla.
