Not making 'Jaane Tu' sequel: Abbas Tyrewala

Mumbai: Filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala has shot down rumours that he is making a sequel to his 2008 hit film 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na'.

"Umm...all those vaguely excited by the idea of a sequel to 'Jaane Tu...', as suggested in the press today - hey, please let me know if one is happening. I'd love to watch it as well. But I sure ain't making one," Tyrewala posted on his Facebook page.

"I guess its just a mild attack of cafeteria journalism... whilst practicing ventriloquism (I've been quoted giving random answers to questions I was never asked. Actually, I've an idea! Maybe Jai and Aditi (film's characters) could turn psychopathic, a la Natural Born Killers, and start shooting reporters too lazy to actually do things like 'reporting'," he added.

'Jaane Tu...', a light-hearted college romance, was Tyrewala's directorial debut and also the launch pad for Imran Khan. It featured Genelia D'Souza opposite Imran, and their crackling chemistry worked wonders for the movie.
