Buzz has it that Kangana Ranaut is keen to team up with filmmaker Anurag Basu for a sequel to their 2007 film, Life In A… Metro. Featuring an ensemble cast of Dharmendra, Nafisa Ali, Konkona Sen Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Shiney Ahuja, Kay Kay Menon, Sharman Joshi and Ranaut, the movie was received well by the audience and, even after so many years of its release, garners huge TRP on TV.
“Kangana was an integral part of Life In A… Metro. Irrfan Khan too had a major role, along with Shilpa Shetty, Konkona Sen Sharma and others. It is but obvious that one would want to see some of those actors in the sequel. Kangana is doing extremely well now with author-backed roles, and Life In A… Metro is about a lot of characters. So, she will really need a great script and a lot of convincing to be on board Anurag’s film again,” reveals a trade source.
Talks about a sequel to the successful film, which explores love in an urban setting, are not new. In the past also, there have been rumours that Ranaut and Basu wanted to come together to work on Life In A… Metro 2. In 2016, rumours were doing the rounds that Ranbir Kapoor was keen to collaborate on the project as a co-producer, but plans did not materialize and the project was shelved.
We hope Kangana and Anurag do succeed in reviving the project.
