Dhaka, 18 Dec, Abnews: Remember the 2007 hit Partner, that gave Govinda a fresh lease of life in Bollywood? Well, if all goes well, the comic caper might soon have a sequel. While the first part was helmed by David Dhawan, Mid-Day reports that Sohail Khan would don the director's hat for the sequel.
Preparations are in full swing, and Sohail has already registered two titles - Carry On Partner and Partner 2. An insider told the publication that the makers toyed with the idea of making a sequel before, but it was dropped as they could not zero in on a good script.
There was also a rumoured fallout between the leading men, Govinda and Salman Khan.
Govinda has often gone on record to say that he "should not expect too much" from Salman. If the grapevine is to be believed, Govinda expected Salman to launch his daughter, Tina Ahuja, but she was left in the lurch, something that did not go down too well with the Hero No 1 actor.
However, all that is in the past. Buzz is that Govinda is set to play a supporting role in the Partner sequel. When asked about working with Salman, Govinda told Mid-Day, "Why will I not work with him? We don't have any issues with each other."
Apart from Salman, Sohail will cast two young actors in the film. It is not known if Katrina Kaifand Lara Dutta will return as the film's leading ladies.
Sohail, who is currently working on the script of the sequel, is in no rush to make the Partner sequel. "I'm not making the film right away," he said. - India Today
