Filmmaker John Matthew Matthan says the sequel to his acclaimed Aamir Khan star, Sarfarosh, will focus on the country’s internal security and take a more “realistic” approach.
Sarfarosh was released in 1999 and revolved around an honest police officer, Ajay Singh Rathod (Aamir), whose life changes when he uncovered a major conspiracy while investigating arms smuggling in Rajasthan.
Matthan said the second part will explore the country’s political landscape, but not target any particular party.
“The sequel is about the internal security of the country. It was extremely difficult to write. The film is more realistic because I don’t have to put songs into it. I then had to do it because that was the business.
“Today that has changed. My film will be more realistic and more dramatic. It has politics too, of course, but it’s not about a political party. India’s security is more important than anything else, everyone believes, ”Matthan told PTI on the sidelines of the 51st International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
At the film gala, John Matthew Matthan is chairman of the feature film division of Indian Panorama.
The director said he finished writing the script for Sarfarosh 2 but wasn’t sure about the future of the project.
“At the moment it is not clear when it will hit the ground in view of the current situation (COVID-19). I don’t have the money for this film. So someone producing the film will answer the call. It is my duty that he get his money back first. “
Previously there were conversations between him and actor John Abraham, who wanted to both produce and play the lead role in the film.
However, the director said that things “didn’t work out” between the duo.
The 51st edition of the IFFI will show a total of 224 films in different sections. 15 films will compete for the Golden Peacock Award.
