Ranbir, Ranveer, Yash, Allu Arjun in race for ‘Khalnayak 2’: Report

Filmmaker Subhash Ghai has finished the scripting of ‘Khalnayak 2’, the India Today reported citing a source. The director, who had made ‘Khalnayak’ with Sanjay Dutt over three decades ago, is also in talks with some popular young actors to play Ballu Balram.

According to the source close to Ghai, the director has already finished the scripting of the film. While not much is known about whether Sanjay Dutt will be brought back in the sequel of the 1993 film, Ghai is looking forward to cast a young and dynamic actor for the role of Ballu Balaram. In fact, popular South actors are also on his list.

“Subhash Ghai wants to approach actors like Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor for the character of Ballu Balram. In fact, he isn’t sticking to just Bollywood. Allu Arjun and Yash are also in his list and he wants to approach them as well. He just wants someone who would be able to take the legacy of Ballu Balaram forward,” the source told India Today.

‘Khalnayak’ featured Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff and Anupam Kher. The cast had come together to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary last year. The film was plagued by controversies upon its release. The song from the film, ‘Choli Ke Peechay Kya Hai’, was a massive hit and it was reprised in the 2024 film, ‘Crew’.
