Speculations surrounding the sequel to the blockbuster Bodyguard have been doing rounds for a while. But with Salman Khan busy with other films and producer Atul Agnihotri involved with his upcoming O Teri, things took a backseat. “We know the audiences loved Salman as Lovely Singh, the bodyguard, so we have a lot of room to play with in the sequel as he can be a bodyguard under any circumstances. And now with the high-grade VFX quality, we’ll be more ambitious. Salman is a big star so we want to outdo Bodyguard and take the sequel a notch higher in every way,” said Agnihotri refusing to divulge any more details.
“Bodyguard 2 is actually too dangerous to talk about till it goes on floors. A lot of things including the script are in place, but it’s too early. Moreover, anything to do with Salmanbhai just goes viral. Even if I do start the film, it’ll be next year, so it doesn’t make sense to talk about it now, and make my product look stale,” adds Agnihotri.
