Abhishek Bachchan had an epiphany seeing a luggage carrier truck on the streets of Mumbai recently. Bachchan, on Saturday night, posted an image on Instagram asking the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Farah Khan, Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff and Sonu Sood to get the "band back together" for a sequel of 2014 dance-musical Happy New Year.
Bachchan found a vehicle that had 'Nandu' scribbled on it in Hindi. Nandu Bhide was the name of the character essayed by Bachchan in Happy New Year and the fact that it appeared to him, seemingly out of nowhere, on the back of a truck, is an indication for a reunion of the cast and perhaps a sequel too.
Happy New Year was not a major success but did manage to win the hearts, courtesy of its actors and their idiosyncrasies. Check out the picture and post he shared by Bachchan on Twitter:
Boman Irani and Jackie Shroff responded to the post with enthusiasm. While Jackie wrote, "Such a fine melange of lovely souls with angel @TheFarahKhan at the helm," Boman responded by mentioning, "So what’s the delay??? Let’s go Mr. Bhide (sic)!"

Fans, on the other hand, did not think along similar lines as Bachchan. They rejected the idea of a sequel to Happy New Year out right. See some reactions here:
