Director Rajiv Rai will make a comeback after 15 years with Gupt. But he is not going to follow the sequel trend, he has plans to turn the film into a franchise.
After writing and directing thrillers like Tridev (1989), Vishwatma (1992), Mohra (1994), and Gupt (1997), Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat (2001) and Asambhav (2004) which was the dircetor’s last film, the film maker has per reports mentioned that he wouldn’t mind franchising Gupt only if he can come up with a script better than the first one.
Rajiv said he hasn’t written a version of Gupt yet but has a concept in mind for years now. He also said he will make a franchise only if he has something new to offer as he doesn’t want the audience to watch the same thing.
“I haven’t really written a version of Gupt but I have a concept that I might want to do in a few years from now. If I was to do Gupt 2 it won’t be a sequel as Kajol dies at the end and it ends happily. I wouldn’t mind franchising Gupt if the story I write is better than the first one with a completely different story”.
“I might just use the title, the soul of the film and the names of the characters but the story and cast wise it will be a completely different film. The idea is to show the audience a brand-new film as they get bored watching the same thing. I have to offer them something new every time. It’s something like the Bhatts have franchised the Murder series,” Rajiv added.
