Subhash Ghai’s film Khalnayak (1993) completed 30 years this month. The filmmaker said in an interview with Pinkvilla that he plans to release the film again on the occasion of this milestone. Ghai said, “We have already planned to release Khalnayak on September 4 through Mukta Arts Cinema, where we have more than 100 screens. We will celebrate the re-release of the film with the press.” 

Speaking about the possibility of a sequel to Khalnayak, Ghai revealed,  “I have been getting many messages after Gadar 2’s success, ‘Why don’t you make Khalnayak 2?’ So we are contemplating on it and you will hear the news very soon. It will have Sanjay and a new star, both of them together.”

Ghai has directed iconic films like Khalnayak, Karma (1986), Saudagar (1991) and Pardes (1997). The filmmaker shared that he is being approached repeatedly by producers and studios to remake his successful films or make their sequels. Ghai added, “So you may hear some news very soon from our company about a sequel of one of these big iconic films. We have a story lab, they keep working on the story, and I am heading that department. People love nostalgia, and Ballu Balram of Khalnayak may appear on the screen in a big way.” 

Ghai’s last film as a director was Kaanchi: The Unbreakable (2014).
