Sarfarosh


Aamir Khan has said he has been trying to make a sequel to his classic movie "Sarfarosh" for a long time, and the team is now more than serious about developing the follow-up.

 

Considered one of the best films of Aamir's career, the John Matthew Matthan-directed movie completed 25 years on May 10.

 

"I've been telling John (director) to make 'Sarfarosh 2' for years. Also, the film ended in such a way that we could make part two of this film. I told John we could make a 'Sarfarosh 2' if he wrote a good story. This time, he told me he was trying," Khan said before the film's screening.

 

"I can commit one thing, that we'll definitely give it a really serious shot now, coming up with the right script and the right kind of film for it (part two)," he added.

 

Released on April 30, 1999, the film received wide critical acclaim and was a commercial hit. It also won the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.

 

The story revolves around an honest police officer, Ajay Singh Rathod (Khan), who meets and befriends a famous Pakistani ghazal singer, Gulfam Hassan (Naseeruddin Shah). Rathod's life takes a turn when he uncovers a huge conspiracy while investigating arms smuggling in Rajasthan.

 

The film is still fresh in my mind, and it seems it was released two or four years ago. I've seen this film many times, and it's been a long time since I saw it. I bet if we release this film in theatres, the audience will again come to see it as it's such a good film," he said.

 

"'Sarfarosh' is a very important film for our country and society. It's been one of my favourite films of my career. It's a film that the audience across the world loved. It's a chance for me to thank everyone who liked the film and gave respect and love," he added.
