Satish Kaushik, who directed Salman Khan in his 2003 hit ‘Tere Naam’, has said that he has a perfect idea about the storyline for Tere Naam 2, but is unsure whether Salman would be interesting in doing the film.
“If ‘Tere Naam 2’ happens I will be the first person to jump on it. There are thousands of people asking me on Twitter and Facebook to make the film and I would love to. But I don’t know when and how?”
The director added that Salman’s superstardom in the last few years has taken him to a different zone and his popularity goes beyond the ‘superstar’.
“Now Salman is into an absolutely new zone. His success is beyond anything and he is more than a superstar. I don’t know if he will be interested. But yes something is definitely there in my mind for ‘Tere Naam 2′” Kaushik said.
Kaushik also said that he cried when ‘Tere Naam’ received 1 star from critics.
“‘Tere Naam’ got one star. I literally had tears in my eyes and then on the other side collection reports came. Box office and criticism are two totally different things. At times, the value of film is realised many years after its release. ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ became a cult over the years.”
When asked about his upcoming films, Kaushik said “I have just completed my work in Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Udta Punjab’. There is one English film ‘Promise Dad’ that released in UK three weeks back and will soon make it to Indian theatres as well. Script of my next directorial project is also ready, it is titled ‘Maya Nagri’ and I will start working on it soon” he said
