Director Anubhav Sinha, who is geared up for the sequel of Tum Bin, says there was “pressure and tension” while making the second instalment of the 2001 romantic drama.

“Tum Bin 2” directed by Anubhav Sinha and produced by Bhushan Kumar is the sequel to “Tum Bin”. “Don’t make it sound negative. Yes and no. One would end up cashing on success of a film. I don’t think it’s a negative endeavour. We are also seeing it as a tribute,” Sinha told reporters here at the teaser launch of Tum Bin 2 when asked if he is cashing on the title of “Tum Bin”.

“I have made 6 films and this is the 7th project is coming. Honestly speaking, whether a film would be a box-office success or become a remembered film, both are different. My first film ‘Tum Bin’ turned out to be a much-remembered film which is a big achievement,” he said at the trailer launch of its sequel Tum Bin 2.

Featuring Neha Sharma, Aditya Seal and Aashim Gulati in lead roles, the film is scheduled for November 18 release. “We have tried to make better film. There is pressure and tension, but there is no way to deal with it as you can’t avoid it (comparisons). We have given our best,” he said.

The 2001-film starring Priyanshu Chatterjee, Sandali Sinha, Himanshu Malik and Raqesh Vashisth was a sleeper hit at the box office. “We did a lot of auditions for this film. We zeroed in on these three (Neha Sharma, Aditya Seal and Aashim Gulati). All three are good in the film,” Sinha said.
