The grapevine is abuzz that the PK actor has already started planning for the sequel to classic film. If rumours are to be believed, the sequel to the film, which was helmed by Ashutosh Gowariker, will have a new director and new actress on board.
Mid-day quoted a source as saying, “Aamir is planning a sequel and has also met a few people for collaboration. The sequel, like the original film, will be based on the land tax (lagaan) system, but with a contemporary backdrop to it. The script is still being developed and pre-production work is yet to start”.
Another source told Mid-day, “It is likely that another director might helm 'Lagaan 2'. But Prachi Desai has already been finalised to play Aamir’s leading lady. Her role, though, will be relatively shorter than Gracy’s in the original”.
