Anurag Basu‘s Life In A… Metro is one of the most loved movies in Bollywood in the past two decades. Reports about its sequel started doing the rounds long back but we brushed it off wondering it to be another fan demand. But it is indeed happening. Anurag Basu himself took to Twitter to clarify it and also declared that the movie is an ensemble cast, and thus it was becoming difficult to arrange dates. Life In A… Metro is one of the best anthology films that strung many stories together and presented in a way that was never seen till then. After a long gap of 11 years, the sequel is underway and the latest names of the actors that may join the cast ensemble are Abhishek Bachchan and Ileana D’Cruze.
According to the reports of an entertainment portal they both have been roped in for the movie. A source was quoted saying, “Anurag has launched Ileana and they share a good rapport. So it’s no surprise that he approached her for this film. She is equally excited for this. However the paper work is yet to happen. Abhishek Bachchan is too being considered for the film and Anurag has given him the narration. He has liked the script.” It further stated, “Anurag Basu is currently working on the final edit of the script and simultaneously is also locking the cast. The makers are aiming to release the movie sometime in July-August next year. But the release date isn’t final yet.” (Also Read: Arjun Kapoor says NO to Anurag Basu’s Life In A… Metro 2?)
Earlier, reports about Arjun Kapoor doing the film was doing the rounds. However, DNA reports that Arjun had to say no to the film. The report reads, “Arjun Kapoor, who has an interesting lineup of movies, was also offered a pivotal part in Anurag Basu’s sequel to his 2007 hit, Life In A Metro. However, an industry source tells us that the Mubarakan actor couldn’t take it up because the dates required for the filmmaker’s next were clashing with those already committed to Panipat. So Arjun, who’ll be venturing into the Maratha historical, is said to have politely declined Basu’s movie.”
The movie is supposed to go on floors in October this year.
