For years, we have been hearing about how there is going to be a sequel to the cult comedy, Andaz Apna Apna. The movie, directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, had Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karishma Kapoor in the lead. Talks about the sequel have been going on for some time, with both Salman and Aamir showing an interest in continuing the adventures of Amar-Prem. Interestingly, both the stars hadn't get along well when the shoot of the first film happened.

Anyway, it looks like the wishes of the fans have been fulfilled with Andaz Apna Apna getting a sequel. Salman and Aamir will return to take on the lead roles, dismissing rumours that Varun Dhawan and Ranveer Singh would play the leads this time. However, the female leads would be different this time, and also the director. A source close to the project EXCLUSIVELY told us that Salman has suggested Ali Abbas Zafar's name to the producers, which even Aamir agreed to, and he is on board as the director. Ali Abbas Zafar has delivered two huge blockbusters with Salman in Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. He is also directing Salman's upcoming film, Bharat. Though Zafar hasn't directed a comedy before, his debut film was a romantic comedy, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, starring Katrina Kaif and Imran Khan.
The source further added that the makers are looking to rope Shah Rukh Khan in for a special appearance. This will be something on the lines of what Govinda did in the original film.

If the details work out, this will be the first time we will have three Khans in a movie. Though, it isn't confirmed that they will even share a scene together. So do watch this space for more updates on this.
Talking more about the original film, on its release, Andaz Apna Apna failed to perform well at the box office and was declared a flop. However, the movie went on to become a huge hit when its VHS came out and during its television run. Now, Andaz Apna Apna is considered as one of the best comedies ever made in Bollywood and fans just can't get enough of Amar-Prem.
