He said that he is planning on a film with the actor but it is still in the scripting stage. He told Pinkvilla: “My film with him is on the scripting stage. Few things are happening, and the film got delayed because of COVID. Two years of pushing have happened, so it is all under discussion. But I am doing a film with him."
Apart from this, rumours about the sequel of the 2004 hit Hulchul have also surfaced on the internet. However, clearing the air, the filmmaker denied the rumours and said that he hasn’t decided upon anything about Hulchul 2.
