No more sequels to 'Sarkar'

Ram Gopal Varma

"I met Ranbir Kapoor. And we discussed some possibilities on what we can do. But Sarkar 3 is not one of them. I don't want to make any more Sarkar films. Not now, not in the future," Varma said.

 The director made the first Sarkar movie in 2005 with Abhishek and Amitabh and repeated the father-son duo in its sequel Sarkar Raj. Released in 2008, part two of the thriller also starred Aishwarya Rai. But the director says there will be no part three.

"Can I please make one thing clear? There's no Sarkar 3. The series ended with Sarkar Raj. There can be no film in the Sarkar series without the Bachchans. It is unthinkable," said the director. Varma reportedly wants to return to the intensely romantic language of Rangeela with Ranbir after he finishes with his film on media and society Rann and Rakta Charitra, a bio-pic on Paritala Ravi.

Meanwhile, the sequel to Phoonk is being directed for Varma by his assistant Milind Gadagkar. "I've been busy with Rann and Rakta Charitra. So Milind did Phoonk 2. He was closely involved with the first part of Phoonk," said Varma.
