Mumbai: Actor Irrfan Khan is likely to be part of the sequel to 2007 hit “Life In A Metro”.
Anurag Basu directed “Life in a Metro,” narrated the story of nine people living in Mumbai and dealt with issues like extra-marital affairs, love, heart breaks and modern-day struggles in an urban life. The musical drama set in Mumbai got good response from the audience.
“We are still working on the script. The sequel will have a completely different story. We are not carrying forward the story of the couples. There will be four love stories set in Mumbai. It’s too early for us to reveal details about it,” sources said.
The film had an ensemble cast of Dharmendra, Nafisa Ali, Shilpa Shetty, Shiney Ahuja, Kay Kay Menon, Kangana Ranaut, Sharman Joshi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Irrfan Khan.
“The sequel will also have an ensemble cast. We are in talks with actors but no one is locked yet. From the first part we are in talks with Irrfan. There is a verbal commitment from him,” sources said.
The film had soulful music which was composed by Pritam and it had memorable songs like “Alvida”, “Baatein Kuch Ankahein Si”, “In Dino”, “O Meri Jaan”.
“Pritam will do the music for the sequel,” the source added.
The sequel will go on floors in December but the makers are yet to finalise a release date.
