Sanam Teri Kasam 2 to roll in September 2022

It has been six years since Harshvardhan Rane and Mawra Hocane’s romantic drama, Sanam Teri Kasam opened in theatres. The film, since then, has received a lot of love from the audience for its music, it’s heartbreaking love-story and sincere performances by the lead pair. The film’s directors, Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, who specialise in creating story-led music videos, are gearing up to take the sequel to Sanam Teri Kasam on floors in September-October this year. The film will be shot at locations in Mumbai and Delhi.

Confirming the news, Vinay told Bombay Times, “We’re really happy that we could crack a story for this one. It moves ahead – it talks about what happens to Harshvardhan Rane’s character after Mawra’s character dies in the first outing. In that sense, the films are connected with one another. We’re all very excited about this. We had been thinking a lot about what we could do to take this film forward into a sequel. It has taken us six years to arrive at this juncture. The film has achieved a cult status and we didn’t want to disappoint the audience with an underwhelming story. So, even though the intention was always there, we didn’t proceed until we found a story that both Radhika and I were happy with. While people recall Sanam Teri Kasam for its fantastic songs, there’s a beautiful love-story at the core, which stems from our mythology – the mythology around Lord Shiva and Sati. The sequel also has its roots in mythology – in Shiva and Parvati. It’s urban and contemporary but the films are soaked in the mythological stories that we have all been exposed to in some form. The music will be the sequel’s backbone, too.”

Although Mawra Hocane’s character dies at the end of the first outing, one wonders if there was a way it could be revived in the sequel. Vinay, who, along with his creative partner Radhika, has crafted one of 2021’s most-watched music videos, says, “I am not sure we can do that this time around. Sinec her character completes its journey in the first film itself, we might have to work with another artiste this time. It’s a heartbreaking moment to watch Harshvardhan’s character under the tree where she’s buried. The sequel kicks off from what happens to him after that.”
