Mumbai: Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das are all confirmed to return for the sequel to their hit zombie comedy “Go Goa Gone”.
The film will be once again helmed by director duo Raj Nidimoru, and Krishna DK, and Dinesh Vijan will produce it via his banner, Maddock films.
“It’s been quite a journey from 2013, and I’m so excited we are back again with this crazy ride! ‘Go Goa Gone’ redefined many things, and we are gunning to do that again.”
“Saif’s character has stayed with me all this while and we are thrilled to bring it back to life! I have had a great partnership with Raj & DK and I’m excited to be back with the original gang!” Vijan said in a statement.
The original film followed the story of three friends — Hardik (Kemmu), Luv (Das) and Bunny (Anand Tiwari) — whose holiday to Goa turns out to be a zombie nightmare.
Saif played the role of Boris, a Russian mobster-turned-zombie hunter in the film.
“DK and I are brainstorming on how to explore the five-year gap between both films. We are bringing Saif back as Boris, the zombie slayer, but will be adding an extra element to the character. We are retaining the entire cast as they were the core of the film, be it humour, camaraderie or bromance,” Nidimoru said.
The film is expected to go on floors in February next year.
