As his latest female-buddy-drama is getting rave reviews, director Pan Nalin says he would love to make the sequel to “Angry Indian Goddesses”.
The film, which released last Friday (December 4), opened to positive word of mouth and the filmmaker is hopeful of taking the story forward.
“Right now we are totally engrossed in the success of the film. But I would really love to do a sequel. Even the actresses are saying that the journey should continue and I cannot stop it. The film’s story is endless and we will always keep finding some journey similar to this,” Nalin told PTI.
“We are visiting theatres and are still in dialogues with the audience, understanding what they liked, how are they reacting to the film. That gives us a clear picture of what to do next and take the story forward,” he said.
“Angry Indian Goddesses” stars Sandhya Mridul, Tannishta Chatterjee, Sarah Jane Dias, Anushka Manchanda, Amrit Maghera, Rajshri Deshpande and Pavleen Gujral.
The director revealed that a major Hollywood network has shown interest to adapt the film into a TV series.
“We have got an offer from a big Hollywood network which is coming to India. Right now I cannot divulge any details, but they loved the film. They have asked to adapt it as a TV series because the content is great,” he said.
Nalin is “humbled” with the response as he had to struggle a lot to get his “small film with epic ambitions” get a release.
“It is humbling that people are connecting with the film. It is a small film with epic ambitions. We had to struggle to ask the distributors to give at least one show for the film, at least give the audience a chance to watch it. Whether they love it or hate it, let them decide,” he said.
The director feels that smaller films like “Angry Indian Goddesses” need to make their own space between the movies of Khans and Kapoors.
“Indian audience should not be judged, that is extremely wrong. Sure, we love watching the Khans and the Kapoors and they will always be there, but they come up with one film a year. What about other weeks? There are 52 weeks and we need to keep the momentum rolling,” he said.
Nalin is right now overjoyed with the response to his film and is looking forward for its international release lined up for next year, including a German-dubbed version.
