“I don’t know why women are dropped from sequels. It is a male-dominated industry and it is entirely upto the director to choose who he wants in the film. But I am glad that most of the films I did are being made into sequels. These films had made a mark. Hence, they are made into sequels and it feels great to have worked in the first part,” said Neha.
Kyaa Kool Hai Hum (2005), a comedy, starred Riteish Deshmukh, Tusshar Kapoor, Eesha Koppikar and Neha. The sequel Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum, for which the shooting has begun, stars Tusshar and Riteish. The new additions include Bipasha Basu, Chunky Pandey and Sarah Jane Dias.
It is scheduled to release on April 6 next year.
For Ek Chalis Ki Last Local (2007), which starred Abhay Deol and Neha, the sequel might be titled – Gyarah Chalis Ki Last Metro and will star Vivek Oberoi. Then, a sequel to Apoorva Lakhia’s 2007 film ‘Shootout at Lokhandwala’ is being made. ‘Shootout at Wadala’ revolves around the encounter of gangster Manya Surve and actors Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Vivek Oberoi have been finalised for the project with rumors of Vidya Balan being roped in.
All the three films featured Neha in pivotal roles and did good business. But the actress can’t quite understand why a story is left untold in the first part if there is more to it. “I feel if there was something more to tell, why wasn’t it told in the first part? The fact that something similar did well three years is not a good enough reason to make a sequel. But I am proud to be associated with these films that are now being made into sequels,” Neha said.
