The director duo of Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru is more popularly known for their music videos. The duo holds the record for the most viewed Indian music video on YouTube with Dhvani Bhanushali’s song Vaaste. However, directing music videos is not the only feather in their cap. They made their directorial debut with 2005 released Salman Khan and Sneha Ullal's Lucky: No Time For Love, followed by Sunny Deol and Kangana Ranaut’s I Love NY and the 2016 romantic tragedy film, the Harshvardhan Rane-Mawra Hocane-starrer Sanam Teri Kasam. While talking to Spotboye.com exclusively, Vinay confirmed that they are currently working on the sequel of the latter.
“Sanam Teri Kasam did not work at the box office at the time, but I have never seen the kind of cult following the film has developed over years, ever before. On IMDb, it has a high rating along with a high viewer rating as well. It has gathered a cult fan base. Even on TV, the film has done really well. So, the producers want us to do Sanam Teri Kasam 2 and that’s the kind of response we also get every time from our viewers. So, we are working on it and it is definitely happening,” he informs.
Vinay goes on to suggest that the sequel might have a different story since the female lead in the original dies in the end. “We didn’t have a story to tell after Part 1 since Mawra’s character dies at the end of Part 1, but we are working on some ideas. We have one film with Bhushan Kumar Ji, so after that, we will work on Sanam Teri Kasam 2,” he concludes.
