Vidyut Jammwal’s much talked about action thriller Khuda Hafiz has announced a sequel. The film released last month on Disney + Hotstar as theaters remain shut amid growing cases of coronavirus in the country.
Directed by Faruk Kabir, Khuda Haafiz was inspired by a real-life incident from 2008, when a man went out to rescue his wife, abducted, and forced into human trafficking in the UAE. The second chapter will take the love story of the lead characters Sameer (Jammwal) and Nargis (Shivaleeka Oberoi) forward. Sameer getting his wife back is not the perfect ending of their story, said Jammwal.
“To adjust and successfully live in society after the woman has gone through this turmoil is the real beginning of the love story. That’s what we’re planning to showcase in the second chapter,” the actor said in a statement.

Kabir said he always had a sequel in mind but wanted to wait for the audience’s response.“Khuda Haafiz Chapter 2 is a more potent and heartfelt love story about how the lead characters come to terms with what has happened to them,” the director added.
Abhishek Pathak of Panorama Studios on Thursday said the response to Khuda Haafiz was phenomenal and they hope viewers will also embrace the second chapter.
Produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak (Panorama Studios) and co-produced by Sanjeev Joshi and Aditya Chowksey, Khuda Haafiz Chapter 2 is expected to go on floors early next year.
Meanwhile, the actors are currently relishing the success of Khuda Hafiz and hope to bring an engaging and longing love story with Khuda Haafiz chapter 2.
