Vidhu Vinod Chopra confirms PK sequel with Ranbir Kapoor

PK broke box office records when it was released in 2014. The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput and Bomani Irani in pivotal roles.

Aamir Khan’s blockbuster PK directed by Rajkumar Hirani will get a sequel in due course, Ranbir Kapoor will be taking the story forward, confirmed producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra. 

Chopra reportedly told a news portal that a sequel to PK will be made in good time. The film has shown Ranbir towards the end of the film, so there is still a story to tell. However, the film’s writer Abhijat Joshi has still not written the story, the day he writes it, the sequel will be made, he added.

He further said that they are not in the business of making money but making cinema. The franchisers can be money-spinners, but he is driven by powerful stories instead of financial gains. We would have made six to seven Munna Bhai and two to three editions of PK, if money making was their goal, said Chopra adding that they seek joy, happiness and peace over a few crores.

Back in 2018, when director Hirani was asked about the PK sequel, he had said nobody was happy upon the end of the film as Aamir’s character would just leave the planet, hence the team decided to show PK return to the planet with another native from his planet.

PK revolves around Aamir’s character as an alien who lands on Earth and loses the device that helps him communicate with his spaceship. Being from another planet , he goes out questioning everything in an acquired Bhojpuri accent.
