‘Baahubali’ scriptwriter to pen sequel of ‘Nayak’
Mumbai, Jun 21 : “Baahubali” and “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” fame writer K V Vijayendra Prasad has been roped in to pen the script of the sequel to the 2001 hit political thriller “Nayak”.
Produced by Eros International and Deepak Mukut, the sequel will see Anil Kapoor again as the lead alongwith some fresh faces.
The sequel will be a political satire with romance as the backdrop.
“‘Nayak’ created ripples on its release and was one of the most successful political satires of its time.
“It’s the apt time to plan the sequel in the current political milieu. And we can expect only the finest writing with Vijayendra Prasad ji on board who has given two of Bollywood’s biggest releases last year – Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan,” said Sunil Lulla, Managing Director, Eros International Media Ltd said in a statement.
“Nayak”, which starred Rani Mukerji in the female lead, was the remake of S Shankar’s successful Tamil film “Mudhalvan”.
