Tumbbad was one of the surprise hits of 2018, which enthralled audiences with its rich storyline, spectacular cinematography and brilliant performances. Directed by Rahi Anil Barve and presented by Aanand L Rai, the movie had Sohum Shah headlining the cast, along with producing it.

Right after the sleeper success of the film, rumours were rife that the makers wanted to develop Tumbbad as a franchise and that the work on Tumbbad 2 would begin soon.

However, if Sohum Shah is to be believed, the sequel to Tumbbad has taken a backseat for some time. “We want to make Tumbbad 2. We are looking for a writer. There is an idea that we want to develop. But there are also a couple of other things I want to make. I am focused on those. So for now, Tumbbad (2) is on the backseat. We are working on it but I am taking it slow,” said Shah.

He further added, “I am in love with what I made, so I definitely want to make Tumbbad 2. But there are some straightforward stories that I want to tell. These will rejuvenate me and give me the strength and push to make Tumbbad 2”.
