Even after 15 years of its release, Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein still enjoys a massive fan following and actress Dia Mirza says it would be fantastic to take the movie forward with a sequel.
Directed by Gautham Menon, the 2001 romantic drama starred R Madhavan, Saif Ali Khan and Dia, who made her acting debut with the film.
Asked if there are any plans for a sequel, Dia told PTI, “There has been a lot of pressure for a sequel. I don’t know whether there will be one. But it will be interesting to explore what happens to Maddy and Reena, at some level.” “Rehnaa Hai Tere Dil Mein” was a remake of the popular Tamil film “Minnale” and was not that big a success during the time of its release, but developed into a cult later on.
To celebrate 15 years of its release, the 34-year-old actress along with co-star Madhavan recreated the film’s poster, something which she says was a tribute to the fans.
“I had forgotten it has been 15 years until my team pointed out. It doesn’t feel like it. When I discovered it, I was like ‘Wow’. It was a good opportunity to hat-tip to all the love fans have shown us,” the ex-Miss Asia Pacific said. The actress was speaking at ‘Half Ticket Young Adult Script Writing Workshop’ at the ongoing 18th Jio MAMI Mumbai
International Film Festival with Star.

She was one of the three mentors, along with filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee and lyricist Varun Grover, who conducted a screenwriting workshop for aspiring school-going film writers aged 12 to 16 years.
“One of the most important aspects of progress is communication and cinema plays a very integral role in that. The ‘Half Ticket’ category is trying to encourage the spirit of enquiry and the importance of communication in children.
“I was deeply influenced and inspired by the cinema that I watched growing up as a child. I think it did many things for me. One of the most important was, it pushed me into places where I wouldn’t have gone otherwise,” she said.
Half ticket presents an exciting slate of 28 films from across the world, including fiction, non-fiction and animation. It showcases 13 features and 15 shorts, and the jury consists of 7 kids aged 9 to 17 years from across Mumbai.
