It is official. The sequel to the 1994 rib-tickler starring Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, Andaz Apna Apna is finally going on floors by the third week of December. Producer Vinay Kumar Sinha had approached Rajkumar Santoshi, the director of the original, to helm the project and Santoshi, who has agreed to do the project, is likely to begin with the pre-production as soon as he wraps up Phata Poster Nikla Hero which he is currently shooting.

Although the cast of the second installment of Andaz Apna Apna is yet to be finalised, there are effort to get part of the original cast on board. Vinay Kumar told TOI, " We will be discussing the project with Aamir and Salman. It would be great if that works out. Otherwise, we'll sign up some other actors to play the lead."

According to a report published in TOI, Sinha has roped in Ram Mirchandani, co producer of Vicky Donor, to head the production unit for the film.

Explaining why he chose to make a sequel to the film after 19 years, Vinay Kumar said: "People were asking me to do a sequel ever since the film became a hit. At that time, I was not too sure, if the Indian audience is ready for a second part. But, now the time is ripe. Remakes and sequels are in vogue. "

My request is to please stand against watching movies in Cinema Halls just to discourage those who are having demands of billions of rupees for their acting that comes from our pocket means the biggest budget from the poor who put their families hunger standing queue to purchase high valued tickets comprising the heavy cost of producing films as well as imposing of high entertainment taxes. I am not favoring to stop entertainment that you might get it from other sources like DVDs, videos, TVs and stage shows. On my request if I become successful to convince at least a single individual that will be a great achievement for me.
