How Would A Sequel Of “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” Look Like?
10 years ago, a Zoya Akhtar film, “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” was released. Last week, in an interview with TOI, actor Hritik Roshan said that there is a possibility of a ZNMD sequel 10 or 15 years down the lane. Films have long-lasting impacts on our lives. This movie taught us many convincing life lessons. Here are few imaginary scenarios in which we would love to see how they unwind.
We are curious to know how the “Agar Zinda rahe toh” pact made by Kabir (Abhay Deol), Imran (Farhan Akhtar), and Arjun(Hrithik Roshan) before the Bull racing will unfold. How would Natasha (Kalki Koechlin) react when Kabir will tell her that he does not want to marry her because he came under pressure and had to propose?
How will the life of Arjun and Laila (Katrina Kaif) be in London? Surely he would have left his job in finance and would have started his cafe or he might have started cooking classes. Hopefully, we will not have video call meetings anywhere, and however, his job demands. He will stop being “The Mentally Sick Buooy”.Laila would be continuing her career as Scuba Diver and her life would be full of surprises. Their love story will be a great treat to watch.
Imran would have published his poetry. His poems were written by Javed Akhtar were played throughout the movie. They were deep and made us think about certain things in life. Some of his poems included, “Dil Akhir Tu Kyun Rota Hai”, “Yeh Jane Kaise Raaz Hai”, “Der Lagi lekin”, “Toh Zinda ho Tum”.
Will they go on another adventure; it would be very interesting to know which adventures they take given the fact that they will be old now! Or will they choose any different activity? Some things from the movie should not change, like their pranks of scaring people, their rapid-fire game of “Muze tumhare bare me kuch pata chala” and of course last but not the least- Bagwati, we don’t want anyone to get more importance than her, do we?
Zoya Akhtar, if you are reading this, then please make a sequel to ZNMD.
