After HERA PHERI, MUNNABHAI, GOLMAAL, DHOOM, KOI MIL GAYA and ALL THE BEST, there is yet another franchise waiting to happen. PHOONK is the subject in question and while 'PHOONK 2' is already complete and ready for release, there are plans already underway to get started on PHOONK 3.
Confirms Milind Gadagkar who is making his debut as a director with PHOONK 2, "Yes, I have left the ending of PHOONK 2 open for another in the series. I am not ruling out the possibility and it would be interesting to see how audiences react to PHOONK 2. There were quite some positive reactions after people saw PHOONK."
Unlike PHIR HERA PHERI and LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI which just had the characters from the original flicks remain constant while the storyline changed PHOONK 2 takes off from exactly the same point where PHOONK left and continues the story.
"It's not just the characters but even the actors playing their roles which are the same in PHOONK 2", states Milind, "We enter the lives of a couple (Sudeep, Amruta Khanvilkar) and their kids (Ahsaas Channa, Shrey Bawa) who continue to be haunted by the evil force (Ashwini Kalsekar) which is back from the dead. However, situations this time around are entirely new."
Well, with PHOONK 2 all set to release on 9th April, a lot would depend upon the way it is accepted by the audiences before makers pick up the baton once more for the next installment.
