Bollywood movies can surprise you sometimes. And they turn out to be a bigger surprise when these movies are not only a hit but are also made into sequels!
Case in point, ABCD – that was a movie made without newcomers and was a sleeper hit. Now the sequel ABCD 2 brings Varun Dhawan – Shraddha Kapoor together for the first time.
We bring you 9 other movies that did not only fare well at the box office, but later on, their sequels were also made. Take a look…
TANU WEDS MANU & TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS
R. Madhavan himself revealed in an interview that people doubted him when he signed TANU WEDS MANU, little did anybody knows that not only TANU WEDS MANU but its' sequel TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS also would be a huge hit!
DHOOM, DHOOM: 2 & DHOOM: 3
Even though John Abraham’s career might have just taken a kick-start before DHOOM, we did not really expect the movie to become a huge franchise – so huge that Aamir Khan would be a part of it.
YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA & YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA 2
Who could have thought that the Deols coming together would be a full-on entertainer? YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA was proof of just that!
HERA PHERI & PHIR HERA PHERI
On the announcement of HERA PHERI, nobody expected the movie & its’ characters to become a huge success.
MUNNABHAI M.B.B.S & LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI
Who knew that MUNNABHAI M.B.B.S. would become a path-changing movie for Sanjay Dutt & Arshad Warsi?
BHEJA FRY, BHEJA FRY 2 & BHEJA FRY 3
Nobody ever would have thought that Vinay Pathak in the lead role would be oh-so-good!
MASTI, GRAND MASTI & GREAT GRAND MASTI
In a time when Riteish Deshmukh was giving either flops or semi-hits, & Aftab Shivdasani – Vivek Oberoi’s careers going nowhere, MASTI becoming a hit was a shocker – & today they are shooting for GREAT GRAND MASTI. We wonder what would be the success mantra, anybody?
DHAMAAL, DOUBLE DHAMAAL & TOTAL DHAMAAL
Gathering a cast like Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Ashish Chowdhry & Jaaved Jaaferi was surely a risk, but Indra Kumar stood up to the risk & got a hit in return.
RAAZ, RAAZ: THE MYSTERY CONTINUES & RAAZ 3
In spite of facing lot of criticisms, RAAZ has been converted into a trilogy.
