‘Sarfarosh’ director John Mathew Matthan is apparently planning a sequel to the 1999 film. Aamir Khan who had played the iconic role of ACP Rathod in the action drama said that he would love to be a part of the sequel. Aamir will next be seen in ‘Secret Superstar’.
Superstar Aamir Khan said he is all game to reprise his iconic role, ACP Ajay Singh Rathod from ‘Sarfarosh’ in the film’s sequel. The 1999 movie, directed by John Matthew Matthan, dealt with a police officer’s quest to rein in cross-border terrorism and received critical acclaim.
There were reports that Matthan is set to begin work on the sequel. When asked about it, Aamir told reporters, “Oh, it’s getting made? I didn’t know. How wonderful, that’s great. I would love to play ACP Rathod”. Along with Aamir Khan, ‘Sarfarsoh’ also starred Naseeruddin Shah, Sonali Bendre and Mukesh Rishi.
He was speaking on the sidelines of the opening ceremony of Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival here last night. The 52-year-old star said because of his busy schedule, he would not be able to watch any film at the festival. He was accompanied his ‘Secret Superstar’ co-actor Zaira Wasim. Aamir said he is currently tied-up with his upcoming production and is “very nervous” for its release scheduled on October 19. Zaira Wasim was seen with Aamir Khan in last year’s ‘Dangal’. Zaira played the role of Geeta Phogat in the film.
Recently, Rajkumar Hirani also hinted at the sequel of ‘3 Idiots’ and said that though the idea is by far only sketchy, Aamir Khan is very keen about working on it. After ‘Secret Superstar’, Aamir Khan will be seen in Aditya Chopra’s period action-adventure drama, ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’.
