More than a decade ago Producer Ratan Jain of Venus joined hands with director Dharmesh Darshan for a romantic-drama DHADKAN with Akshay Kumar, Shilpa Shetty and Sunil Shetty in the lead, that went on to become one of Bollywood's most popular love stories. DHADKAN released in August 2000.
The duo has now come together to take the franchise ahead with a film tentatively titled DHADKAN 2 - THE HEART BEATS ONCE AGAIN. Confirming the news, producer Ratan Jain informed, ''We plan to go on floors this year. The essence of the film will remain the same but the new age sensibilities will be kept in mind. The film will be released sometime next year.''
Director Dharmesh Darshan further added, ''The film will be titled DHADKAN 2 - THE HEART BEATS ONCE AGAIN. The story will be a romantic one, but will not take off from where DHADKAN ended.'' Adding to that, DHADKAN 2 will see a fresh story and new starcast... I can't divulge any other details besides this but to follow up with what is considered a classic will be challenging.''
