After Rohit Shetty went ahead with his cop universe, seems like producer Dinesh Vijan wants to adopt the same for his horror franchise. In his recent chat with Mumbai Mirror, Vijan elaborated on his plans of developing a horror franchise and that does sound hella exciting. While his last outing, Stree starring Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor was a big hit, the producer plans to elaborate the saga with its sequel that will be releasing in the next two years. Rajkummar Rao Lauds His Roohi Afza Co-Star Janhvi Kapoor As Sincere and Hardworking Actor.
Speaking about his plans for developing a horror universe, Vijan said, "Roohi Afza, my first film with Janhvi (Kapoor) and my third with Raj, comes in April 2020. In March 2021, we plan to release another horror-comedy, Munjha, which goes on the floors next year in August. All three— Stree, Roohi Afza and Munjha—will have a part 2 which will arrive over the next five years, three years after the original opened, each answering the questions the first part ended with. Then, all three will come together in my horror universe in a series of two films which deal with the bigger picture and a larger conflict." Janhvi Kapoor-Rajkummar Rao’s RoohiAfza Postponed, Film to Be Released On April 17, 2020.
When asked if he plans to retain the original team of writers to pen these sequels, Dinesh said, "All of them and their sequels are being written by separate writers and will be made by different directors over eight years." Well, if Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh coming together for Shetty's cop universe looked promising, what are your thoughts about Shraddha and Janhvi collaborating for a different universe? We think it would be super fun.
