Award-winning filmmaker is planning on making a sequel of the highly acclaimed ‘Mr. and Mrs. Iyer’ with Konkona Sen Sharma and Rahul Bose reprising their respective roles from the 2002 movie. At the Abu Dhabi film Festival, where her Bengali comedy ‘Goynar Bakso’ was screened on Tuesday night, Aparna sen spoke about her new plans and her professional camaraderie with her daughter Konkona.
“I might do a sequel to ‘Mr. and Mrs. Iyer’, I’m not yet sure, but I just might do it,” Sen said when asked about her next project.
Without revealing any further about her plans, she said, it was ‘obvious’ that she will bring Konkona and Rahul back on screen again. “If they (the characters) are meeting after 10 years, we can’t have other actors playing them,” she said.
‘Mr. and Mrs. Iyer’ saw Konkona as a Hindu girl, while Rahul essayed a Muslim man. The film showcases their journey against the backdrop of communal unrest. The story ended in such a way that their characters went on their own paths.
It will be very interesting to see how the sequel will bring them back on the same route.. For more info stay tuned to this section.
