Remember the endearing story of friendship and love in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na? The film, released in 2008, followed the journey of two best friends, Jai and Aditi, who date other people before discovering they are meant for each other. Starring Imran Khan and Genelia D’Souza, this movie captured the hearts of many.

The movie also featured Naseeruddin Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah in pivotal roles. Over the years, many fans have expressed a desire to see a sequel to Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Recently, Imran Khan discussed the possibility of a sequel to the 2008 film.

In an interview with India Today, Imran Khan shared his thoughts on the prospect of a sequel to the film. The actor said that the 2008 film doesn’t need a sequel as it is not a “plot-driven” movie.

In Jaane Tu, it’s a kind of film where characters’ emotional journeys is the culmination of the plot and because of that, to have a sequel you have to then reopen their emotionality which may or may not work. Sequels generally are for plot-driven films, not character-driven films (sic),” Imran shared.

Imran explained how in action movies like Spider-Man, there’s always a new villain, so you can keep making more films because the plot drives it. “Like in action franchise, Spiderman has to swap the bad guy at the end of the film. One bad guy, another bad guy…So because it’s plot-driven, you can always make another (sic).”

“The one where your entire journey is a character journey and the journey of these characters finding love, finding who they are, and finally ending up here (together). The only way to readdress it, i.e. to poke that, open it up, and make it. I don’t know if that works (sic),” the actor further said about Jaane Tu’s sequel.

On the work front, Imran Khan is getting ready to return to Bollywood after nine years, which is a big deal for him. According to a report by Peepingmoon.com, Imran is starting a new phase in his career, with support from his uncle and mentor, Aamir Khan. Aamir has played a key role in Imran’s career from the beginning, introducing him as a child actor in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak in 1988, and later as the main actor in Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na in 2008.
