Confirming the news, producer Ratan Jain says, “We plan to go on the floors this year. The essence of the film will remain the same but the new age sensibilities will be kept in mind. The film will be released sometime next year.”

Says director Dharmesh Darshan, “The film will be titled Dhadkan 2 — The Heart Beats Once Again. The story will be a romantic one, but will not take off from where Dhadkan ended.” Adding that , “Dhadkan 2 will see a fresh story and new starcast… I can’t divulge any other details besides this but to follow up what is considered a classic will be challenging”.
