A week after her paranormal thriller Ragini MMS was unveiled at a midnight premiere on Friday the 13th of May, producer Ekta Kapoor has announced a sequel.
With the same cast likely to take the story forward, Ragini MMS 2 will also explain the events that led to the Maharashtrian lady being tainted a “chudail”(witch) and blamed for the death of her family. Along with this, the film will follow up on Ragini and Uday’s story.
“The movie should go on the floors by the year-end”, says producer Ekta Kapoor, who is also toying with the idea of making it in 3D.
“Many have been wondering what happened to Ragini after she was found unconscious in the haunted house. Well, she survived but being traumatized by the events of the night, she had to go in for therapy. After that, even I’m clueless”, laughs lead actor Kainaz Motivala, who is expected to return with co-star Rajkumar Yadav.
Reportedly, Kainaz herself was traumatized during the shoot, almost getting stranguled during a particular shot. Why would she want to go through the horror again? “Anything for Ragini”, retorts Kainaz, who’s basking in all the recognition and appreciation post the release.
The original Ragini, whose MMS scandal was the trigger, was threatening to sue Ekta before release, due to apprehension that the sex scenes would be associated with her. But Kainaz reasons, “It wasn’t exactly and entirely her story, Ragini was seen as a sweet girl and not a brazen hussy”.
Ragini MMS 2 promises to be scarier and steamier; a sizzling sequel to the ‘scariest date film ever’!
