Tug of war

Well, it looks like their differences have extended beyond reel. Only this time it’s not the lead stars of the film, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, but two film-makers, who are at loggerheads.

The makers of the sequel of the hilarious film, Andaz Apna Apna, seem determined to draw the actors in their personal battle. While the original director Raj Kumar Santoshi wants the sequel to take precedence, another producer Siddhartha Jain is determined that the animated version of the same —  now titled Andaz Naya Naya — hits screens next year as scheduled.

“We’re doing the first of our proposed animation films in the Andaz Naya Naya series in 3D and stereophonic sound. We are targeting it at the kids  as once they come in, the adults are bound to follow,” confirms Jain.

However, Santoshi is planning to bring the Salman-Aamir jodi back as Amar-Prem. Says a source, “Only the right plot is awaited. Otherwise, Santoshi has got both Salman and Aamir keenly interested in the sequel. So the last thing he needs right now is an animation film based on the 1994 film.”
