Kabir Khan reveals separating from Bajrangi Bhaijaan Sequel!

Filmmaker Kabir Khan’s two films with Salman Khan Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan are all-time blockbusters. But it came as a surprise when Ali Abbas Zaffar directed the sequel of the film, Tiger Zinda Hai. and now in a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama opened up on not directing the Tiger sequel and separating himself from the Bajrangi Bhaijaan sequel too. 

Kabir Khan shared, “For me, principally I am a storyteller. I feel that when I have made that film I am done with that story. I am done with that character. I am not living with that character anymore. I always do think about what would have happened to these characters after the film. I have a story in my mind but it has not excited me enough to go back and do a story with those characters.”

The director also took a dig at those filmmakers who keep making sequels for the money and even cleared that he isn’t part of Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2.

“In our industry, the moment a film is a hit people start making a sequel. Not only in Tiger, after New York also people started saying when will the sequel be made. I told them that ‘if you have seen the film, you will see that all the characters die, about whom will I make the film?’. With Tiger, for me, it was one story. Yes, it had the potential of a franchise when we were writing but I was very clear that I am not going to do it and I have never been excited about franchises. You can imagine the pressure there is to make Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2. But for me, the story is over,” Kabir continued.
