At the time of its release, Andaz Apna Apna, even though a flop, gathered a cult following over the years. Thanks to several reruns on TV. And since quite sometime there have been a lot of buzz on social media about its sequel. Many fans wants see the reunion of their beloved Amar-Prem, along with Karishma, Raveena, Teja, Bhalla, Robert and Crime Master Gogo. There have been several reports of its sequel in the offering or on the scripting stage but to no avail. In fact recent reports suggested a remake but I hope and pray that never happens because it’ll be blasphemous to even think about it. So when BollywoodLife caught up with Raveena Tandon, one of the leads of the film, for an interview for her upcoming film Maatr, a mention of Andaz Apna Apna was inevitable. When I asked her, if she’ll be game for a sequel to Andaz Apna Apna, to my delight she was game for it. But, what had me in split was her explanation that followed.
She said, “I would love to be a game for it but I know that my photograph is gonna be hanging there. Aamir and Salman will be garlanding me and lolo and saying ‘hamaari biwiyan mar gayi, ab kya karein” and they will be running after 21 year old heroines. So that’s how the sequel’s gonna start.(sic)” Also read: Raveena Tandon sides with Akshay Kumar on National Film Award win, says People who don’t win create controversy
Well I must say even though in jest she made a valid point of how gender inequality exist in Bollywood and you can’t really blame them, it has to do with the audiences as well. As movie buff I do hope a sequel is made soon with the original cast including Raveena and Karisma.
