Filmmaker Sohail Khan, who directed his superstar brother Salman Khan in the 2014 film ‘Jai Ho’, has said that he has no plans of directing the sequel to the film.
While interacting with the media, a journalist conveyed a message from Salman fans who were keen on watching ‘Jai Ho 2’.
Responding to the request, Sohail said “It’s good that people want to see Jai Ho 2, but commercially, Jai Ho didn’t do well. So it’s not even commercially viable to make Jai Ho again.”
The director went on to add that sequels to films like ‘Kick’ and ‘Dabangg’ would make much more sense commercially.
“There is Dabangg and Kick. They are more credible for a sequel than Jai Ho” he added.
When a journalist asked if it’s difficult for Sohail to create an identity for himself, when his brother Salman has gone on to be arguably the biggest superstar the industry has ever seen, Sohail said “I am proud of my brother and my father. There is only one Salman Khan in this world. There can’t be 3 superstars in a family. Having Salman as a brother is a great platform.”
On returning to the big screen as an actor, Sohail said “I wasn’t happy with the work that I was doing as an actor. If I get a good role, I would love to do it. But for now, I want to concentrate on production and direction.”
Sohail also said that he plans to direct a film next year.
