Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher starring in Special 26 completed 10 years from the film which released in 2013. The actor is keen to be working with director Neeraj Pandey on the film’s sequel and hopes Pandey re-thinks on the Special 26 sequel idea.
In an interview with News18, Kher opened up about the possibility of a Special 26 sequel. He said, “This is one of the questions I’ve been wanting to ask Neeraj (Pandey) for so many years. Every time he’s asked about it, he turns around and hides his face. I’ve been after him to make a sequel to Special 26. He keeps making multiple seasons of his web shows and he should make a second part of Special 26 too because it deserves a sequel. But it seems like he isn’t excited to make it (laughs). Hopefully, it will happen soon.” Kher further added, “It will happen in time."
Special 26 directed by Pandey also starred Manoj Bajpayee, Kajal Aggarwal, Jimmy Shergill among others. The film was based on the 1987 Opera House heist in Mumbai.
