Long back, Alia Bhatt shared that she wishes to work in the sequel to Dil Chahta Hai with Shradddha Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra. Alia said, “Pari (Parineeti), Shraddha and I should work in the sequel to Dil Chahta Hai (DCH; 2001) as three friends. I think that’s a superb idea. It will be so much fun.”
Farhan Akhtar who directed Dil Chahta Hai was told about Alia’s desire and he said that it is a great idea. Lately, Farhan said that the idea of a sequel featuring girls stayed in his mind. He said, “Through you guys, I got to know that Alia wants to do a DCH part 2 with Shraddha and Parineeti. That [thought] stayed in my head, and I am thinking about it very strongly, but this time with three girls [as the protagonists]. We will see how it goes.”
He also shared that he had a very funny discussion with Alia on the sequel of Dil Chahta Hai. Farhan said, “I met her at the Kapoor & Sons screening. After the screening, I told her, ‘Alia, I guess you told someone that there should be a Dil Chahta Hai part two with three girls, and I wanted to tell you that I may be considering it.’ And she was like, ‘Oh, really?’ And I said, ‘Yes, and you will love it when you watch it (laughs).’ She was like, ‘How sick! How mean (laughs)!’”
He was asked if he has set a deadline for the movie. For this he said, “Not really. I haven’t thought that far. For the time being, I have two acting commitments for next year — Lucknow Central and another project,” says Farhan, adding that “there’s no news” about the third part of his much-talked about franchise, Don. “There are no plans yet,” he confirms.
Well, Farhan has no plans yet but we wish he starts planning for the sequel and we get to see the girl gang together on the silver screen soon!
