Dedh Ishqiya was Vishal Bhardwaj’s idea
Dedh Ishqiya, sequel to the successful and acclaimed Ishqiya was Vishal Bhardwaj’s idea. Abhishek Chaubey the director of the film never thought of making a sequel. He says, “I didn’t want to make another Ishqiya. Vishal wanted it. I said Story kahan hai?” After a lot of interactive discussions with the writers and Vishal bhardwaj, Abhishek finally had an idea that clicked him and he said, ‘That’s it, we have cracked it’.
“The film deals with Naseer and Arshad going into another adventure and they are the same scoundrels like before. And it didn’t take them long to get into the skin of their characters even though they shot for the first part four years ago. Trust me, true to its name ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ will be one and-half times better than Ishqiya”, adds Abhishek.
